I'm a retired computer analyst and my wife M@ry Ruth is retired from civil service. Back in 1999 we started a couple of reef tanks, a 190 gallon and a 225 gallon. We made a few newbie mistakes (a couple that resulted in water on the floor) but we worked through them and learned some valuable lessons. As time went on we accumulated quite a few corals with mixed success. After a year or so we were attracted to the beauty of SPS corals and began to slowly remove the "softies" to have places to put newly acquired SPS corals. The more we watched them grow, the more we were impressed with their beauty and decided that this was the direction we wanted to go.
