Hello, everyone!

I'm new to SCMAS but have been in the hobby for a few years. I moved to Falcon last year with my family and 75g FOWLR from the four corners area. Since then, we've managed to acquire a 180g FOWLR and 30g hex reef that's going to be upgraded soon.

I met Chris and bought a few frags from Reefkoi over the summer. I'm really excited to get involved in the club and meet other hobbyists :)

Hope everyone's having a great holiday!

I had no idea there were so many people in the hobby in the springs area. It's awesome! :)

Haha, okay I only have a few good ones.

FTS of my 30, it doesn't look like this anymore, since half my rock work fell into the front of the tank. Had to rescape... Hence the upgrade.

Cleveland Brown, our whiteface... Probably one of the best fishes I've ever had! :)

Just two! The 75g inhabitants went into the 180. But if you count my 75g turtle tank, then it's 3! Some days I think I like my aquatic animals more than my cats and dogs...

Thanks! I'm actually getting frustrated with it because of how restricting it is with rockwork... It's a pain to clean and my clowns attack me every time I put my hand in or pick up anything. I try to blow out the rocks and stir the sand everyday to kick up any detritus. It's over skimmed by an RO BH-100. I watch my feedings. Weekly water changes. Just love ;) I've been told I mess with the tank too much.

I think we all get told at one point or another that we mess with our tanks too much...

Welcome! I have a 32 hex with the exact same skimmer on it. Your tank looks amazing hopefully get to check it out sometime . It really is a chore to keep up with the crud in that tank haha.

Thanks :) Yeah, it amazes me how many spots in the rock can get forgotten. Better check it out before it gets broken down! I'm gonna move everybody to a 55 whenever I have everything ready... Probably not until next summer with my car out for the count and finding another job... I'm hoping to use the skimmer on the new tank, well see.

Haha my friend sent me that as soon as it came out! I'm hoping it'll be as good as the others, but I still need to sit down and watch all of them all the way through ^^' :popcorn: (hard to do now with a 3 year old!)

Cleveland just broke my heart. My powder brown passed on a while back and I still miss him... Tear... Welcome!

Thanks, Paul... I'm so sorry you lost yours! Cleveland is easily the smartest, most interactive out of all of my fish. I would be devastated if anything bad happened him. He's definitely my favorite...

Mr brown was my favorite too... I plan or replacing him for sure. Great "personality" for a fish.

Definitely!

He greets me and eats from my hand everyday :) hope your next addition is healthy and happy!
