Been in the hobby for 25 years when I got a 44 gallon corner tank from a yard sale with a under-gravel filter. From that moment I was hooked. I had the same tank until the silicone was worn out and I feared a leak.
I love this hobby because it brings back memories of when I was getting started... Back when all I could find in St. Louis was damsel fish, back when I was told live rock was "ugly rock from the ocean". The hobby has drastically changed for the better, and I love to see the next thing come about.
