Going with TBS

As outlined in my signature, my tanks have been a source of not just amusement but real help. I will begin my next tank when i get home from korea next febuary. There is a reason its going to have Jeff's filtration(lifereef) and Richards rock! Cant wait to pack up a 120 with this stuff and sit in wonder again. I know without a doubt reefing can induce stress.....and even shock! Its all worth it when you walk through the door after a long day/week......or year and have something to calm you down. My tank serves almost like a cooling system. After about 10 minutes of watching a lawnmower blenny i am right as rain, and a better Soldier/father/husband afterwords. Looking forward to working with TBS in the future!

Amen I couldn't agree more with it being a stress relief. I am not a soldier so as far as that stress and what you've seen I have not. But I have been working in EMS for about 6 years for my full time career. I have seen many horrors what regular public should not and experience overwhelming stress at times, going to a call with not knowing what to expect and having your heart rate jump from normal to tachy. I also find my tank to be relaxing after a long day at work along with my other hobbies.

One more thing thank you for your service, stay safe and come home!

Dan

Im glad im not the only one! I did ride alongs with AMR during EMT-B school in 2005. Talk about a moral and physically stressful job. Its a hell of alot more than people realize or appreciate. Especially when dudes with BFPs come around....lol. Thanks for your service!
