Hi everyone! I'm Matt, I'm a nurse in the ER at UW, and I'm just getting started in reefing. I've kept freshwater aquariums my whole life, and always thought saltwater tanks were insanely cool but also pretty intimidating. Once I started doing some research on them this winter, the intimidation started to dissipate and I'm a little more than month into running my first reef tank. It actually reminds me quite a bit of my previous career, in which I was a chemist! Currently its inhabitants are a pair of baby clowns and a royal gramma...feel free to chime in on my stocking advice brainstorming thread below if you have time! I'm loving this hobby already, and love reading up on the volumes of info available here on R2R.

I'm Rob, from eau claire, how do you join this thing?
Hi Rob! Simply click your profile picture, on the bottom you will see join user groups then find 608 Reefers then click join. That’s all! Just a heads up that it will erase your build thread and you will have to simply add it back.

Hey I'm Jeremiah had fish only tank years ago and just back into it. Tanks been up and running 6 weeks, 75gallon. Live in Evansville and am a trim installer. Going to try and go with a mixed tank. But the true boss of the tank is going to be my 5 year old daughter on what she wants with in limits. Would love to join the club

Welcome. I foresee a bigger tank in your future when she asks for a shark. :)
