I am someone who loves fishes since young and I was a freshwater monsterfish keepers for more than a decade. I have a cousin who was a reefer and used to have a beautiful 6 footer mixed reef. Whenever I goes to his house during CNY, I will get stuck in front of this tank for easily 1-2 hours. After about 4yrs later, I happened to come across this little tank of mine and bought it. That’s how my journey to reefing got started….

My first 4 yrs of reefing was only using a LED lightset + fan + skimmer keeping only fishes and LPS. I have never bother to test my water perimeter and have never understand why do I have to do so until the day when i realize that my beautiful coral is dieding one by one without any apparent reason. That is when i have to learn through the hard way of reefing which i glad that many do not need to embark on this path due to the amount of knowledge that this forum and the internet can offer.
