We'll, I'm from Texas. Didn't really realize how many of us say "howdy". Been reefing for almost 10 years now. Had my first tank crash about four years ago which devastated me (and my pockets). I was wiped out by Velvet quickly and I watched an empty tank for about one and a half years. Built the courage back up to add life to my DT and continue learning. Always referenced this forum for good info and finally decided to join.
