I am a 35 year old pharmacist, and I have lived in Maine all my life. I have 2 boys (age 2 and 4), and a wife (this is where the boys came from). I play the trumpet in a local community band. I am a workaholic, averaging only 1 to 2 days off a month. I am known as a computer/technology geek/nerd, getting the latest and greatest gadgets and building computers for myself, friends and family. I also am (was) a avid computer (Mostly MMORPGs) and video game player (Xbox (2 of them), Gamecube, PS2, Gameboy, Nintendo DS)..but since the kids I have had little to no time to play...I can't wait until they are old enought to play....I will finally be able to play again!

I have kept fish for 13 years. A freshwater 20 gallon since college, then upgraded to a 90g Planted in August 2004 for my 10th wedding anniversary. Then I found AA...and became obcessed with Marine tanks! I set up a 40 gallon breeder in January...and the family and I have just loved it! I can see the 90 gallon turning into a Marine tank in a few years.

Anyway....I try to get on AA as often as I can...but usually can only at night after kids are asleep...and I am tried (hence the reason why my posts have typos, grammar and spelling errors, etc.

I am also a "researchaholic"....I need to research A LOT before making purchases...hence my NUMEROUS postings on AA.

Thats me....what about you?


90 Gallon Fresh Water Planted w/ CO2:
7 Brilliant Rasbora, 6 Harlequin Rasboras, 3 Dwarf Neon Rainbows, 1 Red Tailed Shark, 2 American Flag Fish, 4 Skunk Botia Loaches

40 Gallon Breeder Salt Water: 4 inch DSB (2/3 Agaramax & 1/3 Sea Flor), Bak Pak 2R Skimmer w/ BBX, 2 x JBJ PHs, Coralife Lunar Aqualight (2x96w), 30lb Base Rock and 40lbs of Live Rock.
Inhabitants: Purple Firefish, Pygmy Angel, Lawmower Blenny, 2 Cleaner Shrimp, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, Pistol Shrimp(HH), 1 Emerald Crabs, 3 Porcelin Crabs(HH), varying amounts and varieties of hermit and snails.

3 Gallon Eclipse:
1 Goldfish (won free at a fair...cost $50 in equipment)

No need for it to feel like confession. It's amazing, some of the people that have replied...and I have read their responses, seem to be...exactly something different from how i pictured them.

We have some interesting people here on AA.

Hi, my name is Brett. Just a few things about me: I'm a proud Oregonian from the Willamette Valley. I live near Portland with my wife and step son. I've kept fish (mostly Africans) for 10 years now. I also own a parrot named Tucker (he'd bite me if I didn't mention him). I put in a few years at Petsmart as a fish and bird specialist. I studied water and environmental science in college and now operate an advanced wastewater treatment plant along the Tualatin River (it's like keeping a fish tank, only 1,000,000 times larger). I am currently working on a 120 gal rift lake tank filtered by a custom built w/d sump. I love talking filtration and DIY. I also post under the same name on Cichlid-Forum.

Thanks for having me!

Hi my names Thomas and I'm an aquaholic.
I live in Leuven (near Brussels), Belgium. I've spent all 18 years of my life in this town. And I still love it!
I live in 2 houses! Mom's house, and Dad's house. I have a sister who is 21 and a little brother who just turned two. And a stephbrother who is 11 and irritating (I probably was as well at that age).
I'm currently studying Audiovisual techniques, and specialising in audio.
I have 2 cool tanks! 2 cool cats! and 2 cool rats! :P

What's up folks? The name is Brandon. I'm 21 and live in Austin, Tx. I work as a Material Handler for a Bio-tech company. In my spare time I take care of my 40 gal (about to be converted to a 55) sw tank, and play bass in a local band. I hope to get back into school soon and study Marine biology.

well, i guess i will add to the list. My name is Blaine and i am from a small town in Cape Breton which is in Nova Scotia in Canada. I am 27 years old and am engaged to my darling fiancee who i have been with for over 5 years (yeah .. someone actually can put up with me!) I have been in the hobby for years. To illustrate this, i remember going out to get fish and a HUGE wad of cotton and carbon and i also remember when UGF's came to my home town and were the best thing since sliced bread! I currently reside in Calgary, Alberta. For a job, i am a professional cook/chef. Infact i have gone to school for it. If you ever need a recipe for anything let me know and i will do my best to help you out. I have helped some people out with their culinary dilemas already with great results. What i keep now is a 50 gallon and 15 gallon tanks which are both FW. I haven't the guts (or cash) to get into the marine aspect for now. Hope to meet some of you like at the CAS auction on March 13, 2005.
Lunchbox ... "i'm a man, but i can change, if i have to, i guess"

Tankless ... for now ... until i find what i really want (and what the wife lets me get!)
