My Reef Now Introduction

20140828_184914

My Reef Now is a record of what I’ve learned and a reference to what I need to know (that I can’t always remember). My Reef Now acts as an easy-to-use, look-up reference for information I have researched and want to access again quickly in the future. There are lots of great reef tank resources on the web and my favorites are listed here. I guess it’s my personal log for my experiences, references and lessons learned.

If this site saves you any time then great and if not, thanks for stopping by. I always welcome comments as it’s always good to gain the lessons from those with experience.
