a little intro

now that the Podcast is out of the way ... here is a little bit about me ...

i am new to this site, but have been in the hobby for about 3 years and fragging corals for about 2 1/2 years. i write articles for an online magazine (www.Reefreaders.com)(this is on the back burner while the kinks in the live show are still being worked out) and also help my friends on another forum (www.Talkingreef.com) with podcast episodes and the LIVE call in talk show podcasts on the hobby. i also sell frags to supplement some of the expenses of the hobby.
Oh ... i am also on the frag committee (and running for VP) of my local club (www.lmas.org).

current setup ...

125 gallon SPS dominated RR display, 100 gallon (8' long) frag tank, 30 gallon refugium, all plumbed into a 100 gallon rubbermaid sump. total water = 315 gallons.

Display ... 3x250w 10k metal halides and 2x160 actinic VHO supplemental lighting. 5990 GPH of flow.

frag tank ... 4x110w VHO (1 half) and 2x150w halides w/4x96w PC actinics.
1450 GPH of flow.

Skimmer is a 1 of a kind Euro reef knock off that was made for MY system, and has the mesh mod on the needle wheel.
