Hello everyone, my name is holly and I just got started with a little help from a friend to start a tank.   This hobby is a new experience to me but I am already very excited.  I am sure I will be asking many questions and trying to find some LPS and softies. On Sunday I bought a 24 gallon cube that had been running and set it up in my room.  So far I have seen a few good hitchhikers (zoanthids, sponges) and one bad (aptasia).  But I read in the help section of your forum to inject him with vinegar and he turned to mush.

I hope to get to know you all a little better and hopefully gain some wisdom from you all.  I know starting with a smaller tank is more difficult but its what I can manage and I have a lot of help from a friend that has been in the hobby for years.

If anyone near Willard has some starter corals for cheap please PM me.  Also I need some sand.

Welcome to the forum. There is lots of good people on here and you should have no problems finding the stuff you need or want. I have always used Joe's Juice for aptasia, but I am considering getting a blue or green laser to zap them with.

Welcome to the best forum Ever!! I have always loved vinegar and shooting them with it.. But there are plenty methods... I live in north ogden area, and if you would like to come over and check out my 2 systems, almost 3,  you are more than welcome to. I could possibly frag out some cheap corals.. . Let me know! Goodluck!
This is more than a hobby; its a lifestyle.
