    Thought it may be interesting to see how long have you guys been keeping Marine, fish or Corals.

    I am now around a 1 and half years. (Still a newbie)

    I dunno - plus-minus 3.5 years? Of which I only really starting "doing the right thing" since I found SARK/MASA/ULTIMATE REEF :) After having a fish only tank in a 300 litre Jewel - no skimmer, in-tank filter, no live rock.... :) (only dead rock).....

    Oh yeah - let me add me freshwater years as well: another +-20 years keeping freshwater/bathwater fish ;-)

    Fresh water for about 11 years and marines on and off for 4 or so. Owned an aquarium shop for about a year as well. Still learning from the guys on MASA and a little on SARK.
