This is my journal on my 125G tank:
I took a long hiatus from this hobby when my two kids were born. But now that I have some more free time again, I got the itch and started backup.
I am not the greatest, but I enjoy the view and always trying to learn.
Most of all having fun while doing this, once it becomes a chore, its not fun anymore.
Hopefully I can get more patience from doing this as well.
This tank was started in late May 2020, and is still in progress.
