View Full Version : Better late than ever Redneck Reefer

I will make the plunge. This is right up there with writing on the chalk board in school. (Some members probably don't even know what a chalk board is.) So my name is John I have the handle "Redneck Reefer" I have been with the club since June 2014. I am married (25 years) and have 3 kids. My other hobbies are fly fishing, pheasant hunting, turkey hunting and cooking. I was in the hobby over 20 years ago and life happened and I got out. Now I am back and absolutely love this stuff. This is my first attempt at a reef tank, before I had a 110 gallon FOWLR.

First off this club is amazing! Before I was on my own to try and fail without support except 1 or 2 LFS. I have to blame (or you guys need to blame) Levi for me being apart of the club I ran into him while shopping at Petco. A couple of business cards later and here I am. enclosed are a couple of pictures of my tank. It is a 65 gallon mixed reef with about 15 gallon sump. I also have a 1000 gallon pond in my back yard with large mouth bass in it (redneck Koi pond).
Pictures of my tank. Here goes nothing......
