Welcome, youronlysin! Glad to see you're thinking ahead, LOL!

No I moved just about 2 miles away, and now I'm in Glen Allen, on the north side of town. The move is all done and I'm all settled into life in the 'burbs

When are you moving?

Thanks. I was a FW guy myself for 20 years. I lost my last Angel this spring. He was 9 years old and raised him from an egg. As I was cleaning the tank to put it into storage I had a crazy thought. I wanted a Reef. This hobby is amazing isn't it.

phases99 - I just lost an angel myself - one I raised from a baby and had spawned for me many times, so I know where you're coming from. I am sure I will "cross over to the SW side" at some point, and I know I will have lots of resources for advice when I do, LOL!

Not sure on the move date yet. I'm still waiting on a call from the relocation company to get the ball rolling. I have made some calls regarding some homes, but nothing is deffinite yet. My first day on the new job is Sept. 13, so I have to be there before then. Time is running out!

Well I just ventured into Saltwater this week, so I'm down for the next meeting. Mostly to find out stuff, but it will be fun anyway!

Ok, you guys should have been there. It was really cool. The host, Jay, has a really sweet cube setup with his rock forming a tall pillar, and he glued some corals in various spots so they will grow out and up. It was cool, and there were a ton of people there.

I didn't expect to get anything because my tank’s only been up for a week and a half, and I have more live rock coming on Wednesday. They had a raffle, and I didn’t even put my name in for the live stuff. But when I was leaving, I got talking to people about my tank and they started giving me stuff. By the time I left, I had a small colony of pink button polyps about the size of a 50 cent piece, a small orange Montipora digitata, and a quarter-sized piece of purple xenia. I drip acclimated them for an hour and a half, and then I stuck them in the tank. After my rock comes next week and I position stuff, I'll take a pic of my new pieces. That xenia is odd!

Definitely interested in seeing how the zoos will do. I know they spread like crazy in my tank.
