Hi everyone! My name is Brian and I wanted to introduce myself.
I started into the hobby with my partner Moriah around 2004 while I was in grad school at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN. We started with a friend’s abandoned 10 gallon fish tank that had a clownfish and 2 dead corals. In a few years we foolishly continued to upgrade while repeatedly moving apartments. When we moved up to DE for a postdoc at UD (we lived in Bear), we sold all the livestock off and stored our 280 gallon tank for quite a few years. Now that we’re settled in a house we bought in Woodlyn PA, we are starting to make preparations to get set back up. It seemed like this club would mostly fit our stomping grounds.
I know I have a lot to learn about new technology and techniques. I also know from our involvement in our TN reef club that having a good support system and a forum of folks to talk to can make a huge difference for your success.
I still have a long way to go until I actually start getting water in a tank, including running some new electric, but I’m dipping my toe back in and trying to learn some new stuff in the meantime. Floor braces are up though!
I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone!
