This post will be used for new members to post a little bit about themselves and their tanks.

Since I am the mod I will start first.

I live in Staunton VA and I am interested in both freshwater and saltwater. I have been in the aquarium hobby since 1996. Currently I have 3 tanks running in my home.

20 Gal saltwater
29 Gal freshwater
80 Gal saltwater

My wife and I moved to Augusta WV back in the spring of 96 we have been into fresh and saltwater aquariums since the mid 80's. We have had just about every size and shape of aquarium from 5gal up to 180 gal. fresh water, salt water and reef. We mostly kept cichlids in our fresh water tanks and triggers in our salt tanks. Before we moved we had a 75 gal reef aquarium which we sold due to the move. We are also into outdoor water gardens and koi ponds. We have just set up a new 180 gal reef tank in our new home.

We currently have a 3000 gal garden pond, 5000 gal Koi pond and the new 180 gal reef aquarium.

I live in Harrisonburg, VA and I have a 200 gallon Reef ready tank with a 75 gallon refugium. I have been in the aquarium hobby since 1985 and "reefing" since 1998. My tank has a Deep sand bed (made up of SOUTHDOWN CHEAP SAND) and a reverse lighted refugium. Lighting consist of 3X175 MH lighting with 2X160 VHO.

If anyone need to trade anything I am open. If anyone wants to learn how to grow their on Pytoplankton, I would love to show (this is the same stuff DT's are and it saves you BIG $$$$$) Also have tons of Macro (grape, feather and spagetti) and have some frags to trade!!!

CHECK OUT MY WEBPAGE!!!! Click on the marine life and it will open some thumbnails.

Greetings neighbors!!!!

Just got into the hobby in the last 2 months. I live in Weyers Cave with my wife and son. So far I have a 75 gal reef. only 25 lbs. of live rock (will be changing that in the next few days). Currently have a firefish and a cleaner wrasse in QT, which are doing very well. As for inverts: Red brittle star, 7 scarlet tipped hermits, 5 turbo snails, 1 peppermint shrimp, and 1 coral banded shrimp. Plan to get a fuge soon. Lighting stinks, but will be adding PC lighting within the next few weeks. Taking it slow so I get things right the first time. All advise is more than welcome.
