My name is Chris and I live in Winchester Virginia and work in Springfield. I still consider myself a newbe but set up my first salt tank back in March.
So I have been a member of AA for a while but haven't been on much since I found other local forums. I figured I needed to check and see what was going on on the original forums I was on. Little did I know there was a local area forum on here as well.
Anyway My name is Chris and I have been in the fish game on and off for a while. Seems every time I set up a fresh water tank everything died off so I thought I'd give salt water a try (I know that must sound funny). It turns out I am better with salt water then with fresh water.
When I got on here I originally had a 5 gallon set up and was looking to build an aquarium from scratch. Well the dream of building an aquarium from scratch still hasn't happened but I hope it will with in the next year. I still have the 5 gallon (soon to be a part of a sump/fuge for a 30 gallon frag tank) as well as a 55 gallon. The 55 is going to be replaced by a drilled 55 soon. I hope.
The 55 has a K3, a Shkerry Aqua (generick K3) a HOB
fitler (only to add flow), as of yesterday my sump is offline as my DIY overflow works good, but since I adjusted it the return either doesn't put out enough to keep up with it or to much so it flooded 3 times in one day. So I am looking to get a tank to drill of drill the one I have now. Anyway right now the sump is a cheap rubbermaid with a Rio HP17 and I can't remember the skimmer I have but it looks pretty big. I have lost 3 frags of coral since I got into the hobby the rest have seemed to grow out nicely. Anyway I am getting ready to frag down a few pieces to sell trade (would prefer to trade) so when I do I'll let you guys know what I have if anyones wants to swap.
By the way I see people saying next meeting on here can someone explain what meeting they are talking about?
