    Hey everybody, what have I missed so far?

    I got into keeping fish years ago when I was in my 20's and a move across the states forced me to sale off everything. My father kept Africans when I was a kid but truthfully that really doesn't mean crud because I have not had any fish up until about 2 weeks ago when I got a 240 gallon tank from one of the members here on this forum. I love the hobby and like everything else I have ever done I went at it with enthusiasm. Now I have 4 tanks a 240, 55,40 and a hospital tank. I keep pseudos, peacocks, frontosas, jewels, red fins, crabs, crayfish and plenty of feeders lol. I am a scuba diver and once I get my saltwater tank set up I want to find some fish here in these local waters to keep. I kept a large mouth bass for almost 3 years way back when and when I released him back into the wild I did it in an abandoned rock quarry in Tennessee. I suited up with scuba and got in, with the bass and he followed me all over the place it was so cool. Connection? I don't know for sure but it would seem so wouldn't you think. I went back a year later and he was still there. He didn't follow me around but he didn't swim away from me either. Anyway got any questions just ask... Suspect
    When I got the wet dry sump:

    After I put it all together and had a bio field established:

    I am using LED lighting inside the 240 and it absolutely cuts my electric bill by almost a 1/3. What's more is I have 256 colors at my disposal.
