Join Tyler Johnson and Kirk Stark will be talking all about Marine Angel fish
Kirk Stark's Bio;
I have been in the saltwater hobby for almost 20 years. I started out with a 29g freshwater setup with kissing Gouramis, tetras, and cardinal fish. I did this for a year, and then I saw that there was more color in saltwater fish.
So before I made the switch, I read, researched, asked questions, etc. for 6 months before I added one drop of saltwater to my tank.
After a couple of years of understanding water chemistry (and building confidence), I upgraded to a 75 gallon bow tank. This is where I would make my first big purchase, a naso tang. Over the years, the addiction would grow, and at one time I had 4 tanks in my home; 12g Eclipse, 75 gallon, 90 gallon and a 125 gallon. The 90 and 125 gallon tanks were side by side and took up the entire wall. My wife said if you add any more tanks, you will have to charge for admission (hahahaha).
When we moved from North Carolina to Washington, my wife came me the best Christmas present. She told me I could have a ONE big tank up to 500 gallons. BUT, there was a catch. All other tanks had to go and NO tanks were allow in the house. See we have a special needs son who does not walk, but commando crawls on the floor, so it is imperative to keep the carpet clean AND not wet.
So once we found a house, there was a perfect place for my "dream" tank. It would be an in-wall 375 gallon custom built acrylic tank with a 125 gallon sump. This tank has been running for 7 years.
The current theme is a FOWLR and I like to call it "Angel Heaven".
The majority of my fish are large angelfish.
