I started setting up my first indoor aquarium in March, 2004, having decide I wanted a marine tank, despite (because of?) the challenges involved (high maintenace, high cost). This is because marine inhabitants are on the whole so much more colourful than fresh-water ones. I can't comment on the merits of the statement "you need to learn some water chemistry to keep a marine aquarium" because I am a chemist...
This proved quite interesting, and as luck would have it, a colleague at work was a marine tank fanatic, and I was soon getting all sorts of odds of ends from him. This culminated in July 2004 with another tank arriving! I determined that this second tank would not be a stand-alone affair, but be linked to the first one, not least because I didn't want to get hold of a second cooling unit.
The details of the first tank can be found here, as it was sometime before the two tanks were linked together.
