Hi everyone! My name is Lisa. I'm new to the site but not to El Paso. Been here for 2 years (military) but recently set up a 10g bare bottom nano reef. It's nice to know that there are so many saltwater lovers in the area!

Hello STARS! New member here! My name is Mike and I'm a born and raised El Pasoan eager to start the obsession of reef tanks! :-D I have never attempted reef tanks before but I am a veteran to freshwater tanks starting with a 2g when I was 10 to a 55g just last year. Sadly I had to move and get rid of my beautiful tank. As much as I enjoyed freshwater I am ready for the next step. I am planning on starting a 5g nano (I know, ambitious for a newbie) but after 3 months of research I am pretty confident I can pull it off. I have tons of patience and rarely travel (unfortunately) so water maintenance won't be a problem. I hope I can count on everyone for suggestions on equipment, corals, and suppliers as I go along! :-)

WELCOME MIKE !!!!, 5g would be cool, but yeah ambitious to start out with, if thats what you want to do then all the help you want is here. I would say bigger would be easier but will require more equipment obviously. Let us know.

Well thanks to a friend I may end up starting with a 20g. Question though, what are thoughts on Ocean Water v. mixed salt water? Anyone?
