I just wanted to jump in and say hello. I am Andy and I started my first forum about 6 years ago. Over the years I have adopted and acquired a few other forums and in 2005 I decided to leave my job to work with forums full time. I really love meeting all the members through the discussions and working with the mod/admin teams on each site.

I live a somewhat vagabond lifestyle since I have been traveling for 2.5 years. I am currently in Dallas, Tx for the holidays. Since I started traveling, I have been to 5 continents, 18 countries and about 7,000 miles of road tripping here in the USA. I do plan to settle down at some point in the next couple of years and then I will be armed with lots of great info to starting fostering my own aquarium!

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Regards,

Andy

Black Hills, you are correct. Please don't let that worry you. I have been managing online forums for many years, some have been on topics that do not rank very high on my personal interest list. The number one thing I have learned over the years is that the community is not about me but about the members. I am not here to give advice about aquariums but to listen to the members see what we can do to make the community better.

I am looking forward to learning a lot more about aquariums and when I settle down I am planning to start watching Craigslist in hopes of finding a nice salt water setup for me to foster. I have a lot to learn which I am very excited about. In college obtained all my science credits studying marine ecology at Hoftsra University's marine biology lab in Jamaica. I have always loved being underwater have been scuba diving since I was 14 years old. Last year I was at the Great Barrier Reef and owning a salt water aquarium will be a big help for me in identifying species when diving. So I might not own an aquarium yet, I look forward to getting one once I am knowledgeable on the subject.

Welcome to AA Andy. I for one am looking forward to getting to know you and having you manage the site. If you have any questions or concerns I would be more than happy to help in any capacity I can. I do hope I can help you once you decide to get an aquarium. I got bit by the bug and now have 13 of them! LOL.

Kevin and Aaron,
As already said, thank you both for creating a very cool, friendly place to learn and share. I learned everything I know about planted tanks from the good people on this site. I started with a ten gallon and now have a 75 and am picking up a new 125 this weekend. Couldn't have done it without you. I wish you both all the best in whatever you do, you are great people.
Glenc.
