Hello all,

My name is Joseph. I'm a 22 year old father of two (3 year old and 18 month old). I've been married to my wife for just over 4 (long. Heh!) years now. I grew up in Idaho and moved to East Texas at 14 (dad was transferred with the railroad). I moved to New Mexico in 2002 as a job transfer and I'm now on my way back to Texas for the same reason (wish they would make up their mind). I work as a software engineer (Sr. Application Developer - Client/Server/Web) for the second largest Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan in the nation (H.C.S.C. - Includes Illinois, Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma). I've been with the company for 4 years, but won't be there much longer. Now that we're going "home", my wife will be finishing her degree. After which, we will swap roles and I will become the full-time student. I'm looking forward to that. No work and a breeze through school. I currently have just one tank: a 29 gal with 2 goldies and a clown pleco. I was planning on a 55 gal cichlid, but for the next year (while we're still renting), that has to be put on hold.

So that's about it. Probably more than you would like to hear, but that's my story.... and I'm sticking to it.

hey! I've been here ALMOST a month, for those of you that don't know me, My name is Alex. Sudz is the short form of my last name, Sudnikowicz
I'm 20, And currently attending Sheridan College in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. I'm in Systems analysis, and hopefully will be out in the workforce by december next year!

Sooo with that in mind, almost everything i do with my fishtank from now on will be DIY, As i'm on the student budget. I saved up 8 months to finally get my brand new 44 gallon perfecto pent. I'm planning to have rainbowfish and perhaps the gourami.
I've got a girlfriend of 4 months, and i'm pretty sure i've almost scared her off a few times with my "fishyness"
Woe is the life of an aquarium addict.

Tank setups:

Right now, everything is in limbo, i've recently recieved my 44 gallon, and cycled it with haste. Everything is good to go, i'm just waiting for some parts/decorations! Woe is the life of a student who can only afford to get things shipped by eco parcel post.

My 10 gallon has (with some currently on loan to my 44 gallon)

7 neon tetra's
1 chinese algae eater
1 african dwarf frog
1 cherry barb

my 44 gallon has:
1 2'' clown loach.
ATM it has 3 neons and the cherry barb from my 10 gallon to get it goin.

uhhh, other then that, I'm an avid reader, computer g33k, and LOVE to bike (dirtbike, and mountian bike) Love my music too, I play the piano, Baritone, Trombone, and i've dabbled with the trumpet, clarinet, Tuba, and guitar.

Right now i'm working a co-op term at Kellogg Canada (the cereal company)
I'm an IT guy, and i'm enjoying it quite a bit, and have been asked to come back for my summer term! Quite an honor!

I'm quite willing to trade plant clippings with people, ESPICALLY in a month or so, when my 44 gallon starts to flourish. (and i get my lights)

Hi All, name's Christopher. 26 ish... That's my story and I'm sticking with it. As for me, between fish and computers that just about all the hobbies I can support at one time. Right now my planted 50G is getting most of my attention when I'm not at work, playing video games, or spending time with my Fiancée that I asked on the 16th of September and she said yes.

When It comes to computers, I work support for Hewlett-Packard M-F 170 hours a week it seems. But it gives me time to be on a computer and post here so it's not all that bad.

Ok My Turn

My Name is Wade, I am 28, I am a Scorpio, I like long walks on the beach, Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain,,,,,,,,

Wait thats the other Bio..........

Lets see, I am a former Marine form Kansas, I fell in love with the ocean while learning to Scuba dive in Japan. After getting out of the Corps, I worked for a Scuba Charter company in North Carolina for a year. In 2001 I came back to KS to go to school at Kansas State University for Aeronautical Technology, which is a smarty pants way of saying "Aircraft Mechanic"
Since I was in love with the ocean and stranded in KS, the only next option was to bring the ocean to me. So I got into SW tanks.
Now I have to tear the tank down and trust it with a friend, I have joined the National Guard and I am going to Iraq.

Just as well though, the 35g just want big enough. In fact I dont think I will be happy till I live in a underwater habitat somewhere. I figure in the long run it will save me money by not needing test kits and buckets of "Instant Ocean"!!!!

Great thread

I just found this thread, but I'll post here right under the other Devil-Dog . . .OOH RAH, stainless!

I am Eric and I'm 37 and live in Grand Ledge, Michigan with my wife and 4 kids (3 boys - 11, 10 and 7, Girl - 16) I spent most of my life (30 years of it) in Raleigh, North Carolina with the exception of college where I went to Appalachian State University in Boone, NC (hello rubysoho!!), and the time I spent in the Marine Corps where most all of my service was spent with the Presidential Helicopter Squadron (you've all heard of Marine One I hope) in Quantico, Virginia. After getting out of the Corps in '97, my wife and I moved back down to Raleigh where we stayed until about a year ago. My wife's company offered her an opportunity to come up here and manage a store which we took because this is where her and all her family are from. So after all those years in the warm south, I am acclimating myself to the Tundra we call Michigan.

I have my own business designing and building websites for small local businesses and small family websites and also computer repairs. I also do some freelance writing. My wife is a store manager for a large retail video game company with her teeth in a District Management position. She enjoys her work and I enjoy being the "housewife" so to speak, so it all works out for us. We got our first tank (the 55 Gal) about 8 months ago when a friend of ours was moving and wanted to get rid of his setup, so he gave us the tank, cabinet, and lighting unit. We set it up in December and we've been hooked ever since. AA was the first place I found for help online and I've stuck with it and intend to keep doing so . . . LOVE the place!

Nice idea, Shannon . . .and so nice to have met you the other day . . .good job!
