    Happy Throw Back Thursday!
    What was your first post on R2R?

    Here was my first post

    My name is Zach. I currently reside in Wisconsin. I've been keeping a reef tank for over two years now.

    I have a 40 Gallon breeder with an Aqueon Proflex 2 Sump.
    I have a mix of SPS, LPS and soft corals.
    My corals include:
    Reverse Superman Montipora
    Jedi Mind Trick Montipora
    Red Candy Cap Montipora
    Reverse Sunset Montipora
    Rainbow Montipora
    Tri-Color Acropora
    Strawberry Shortcake Acropora
    GARF Bonsai Acropora
    Green Stylophora
    Hammer Coral
    Duncan Coral
    Red and Purple Mushrooms
    Green Star Polyps
    Green Tyree Toadstool
    Galaxy Coral

    For fish I have a pair of Ocillerious Clowns
    A 6 Line Wrasse
    Two Firefish
    Orange Spotted Goby

    My lighting is a pair of Kessil A360WE's on Kessil's 90 degree mounting arms controlled by a Bluefish LED Controller.
    I have a pair of Ecotech Vortech MP10's
    A Reef Octopus 110INT skimmer

    Happy Thursday Everyone! For todays Throw Back, share with us your first lighting setup.
    Mine was a current orbit marine (standard) light. I very quickly got rid of it after that :D;Hilarious

    A picture from the 10000L reef tank when it was at its best IMO. Back in spring 2017. Before some of the colonies got too big and had to be moved.

    Oddly enough I kept or probably my parents kept it for me...this tank from around 1963 when 5 and I had goldfish in it. I found it in my parent's garage when I went into the military in 1976. It was an oddly sized 17g.

    I recall setting it up around 1990ish when my oldest son was 5 (the same age as when I kept the goldfish in it) Resealed it around maybe 1999, bought some old halide and then another set on tank halide (Current? and looks maybe to be an old AquaClear) at some point until the iron frame started rusting...maybe ~2002 Times sure have changed. Good memories though.

    Oldest pic I can find for #TBT (nothing fancy, but throwback for sure). lol.

    For today's throw back #TBT tell us your first hitchiker you found. Good or bad. Mine was an asterina starfish. I thought it was the coolest thing ever....until years down the road and now I've got millions of them ;Hilarious

    Happy Thursday!
    For #TBT lets see your very first coral. Feel free to show pictures of when you first got it, and what it looks like today (if you still have it)
    My first coral was a single head of Hammer Euphyllia
    It ballooned up to this
    Then after an unfortunate accident, were back down to two heads but growing and splitting fast!

  18. THROWBACK THURSDAY! What was the first pest that ever made you lose it!?, Sep 20, 2018

    So if you've been in this hobby for any time at all, you've had to deal with tank pests, but most of us have dealt with some really tough ones to crack! For today's #TBT, tell us your first pest horror story... Ya know, the one that had you wanting to throw your tank through a window or burn the house down. :eek::rolleyes: Give us the gory details. What did you do to try to beat it, and how did you finally succeed (or not...)?
