"So, my story about getting into the hobby is pretty funny. We went on vacation in Florida, and I caught 5 Florida fighting conchs while at the beach (didn't know I wasn't supposed to take those back then).

"I thought, well I've been thinking of setting up an aquarium...I'll just do saltwater instead of fresh...how hard can it be? Those conchs made it for about 4 years (gave some away at the end of that time, so maybe they're still alive somewhere). #reefaddict4life"
