    Hello! I'm new to saltwater (in fact I don't have a saltwater tank yet) but I've run freshwater tanks for years. I currently have a 55 gallon long (48x13x18?) and a 20 gallon tall (13x13x18?) but I'm looking to get into saltwater. I have room for one more aquarium, but it would have to be small...

    Was watching TV last week and realized that I really wanted a reef tank of my own. My dad's had one for years, and I've always admired it and I figure its high time I start one up. Needless to say I've been reading reef literature almost literally non-stop for the past 6 days... I think it's...
