    Introduction

    My name is Timothy Collins and it's an honor being selected for TOTM. My addiction to reefkeeping started as a birthday gift for my daughter, a 12 gallon aquarium and 2 clown fish. That rapidly became too small. So approximately three years ago, I purchased a 100 gallon tank from Aquarium Warehouse, with that I also bought a 35 gallon sump/fuge, a custom made cherry stand and hood and I was ready to go.
