I wanted to create a thread where our members could get to know the moderator team, or Team R2R, a little bit better. We are very blessed to have such a great team of hobbyists who have such a passion for the hobby as well as helping others and making R2R a great place to talk about aquariums! I appreciate all that they do and I know you do as well.

So please put your hands together and let's give our team a virtual hand clap of thanks!

Area of strength in the hobby:
This would be the DIY part of the hobby, I love making things, its way cheaper to run em that way. If there is a way to do it outside of buyin new, Im trying it.

Favorite hobby outside reefing:
I repair video games for a living, is there anything more fun than being able to play all video games for free?? Oh, and I like to golf.

I have an 11 year old lil girl that is spoiled to the hilt, the kid gets everything, so alot of my time goes into her.
I'm 51 years old, and in the gym 3 days a week, and run up and down
Thunderbird Conservation Mountain 3 days a week. Max bench would have been 430lbs, and I weigh 205, not a bad ratio for an old guy.


Oh, Married for 20 years this December.

https://www.reef2reef.com/forums/re...es-farley/172508-randys-tank-description.html

Area of strength in the hobby: chemistry and science in general

How long in the Hobby: 19 years, earlier with fresh; started with a tank planted with local water plants and lots of baby bullheads that I collected in a local stream in the early to mid 1970's. :)

Favorite hobby outside reefing: photography, reading science fiction (I even wrote a Sci Fi book, but haven't published it)

Anything else?: My wife and I started dating in 1977, married a few years later. Have two adopted daughters (14 and 17). Starting to go on college/conservatory visits with the older one, who is going to study classical saxophone. Currently have two beagles. Like to spend free time at our vacation home in Rockport, Massachusetts, across the street from the ocean. I'm a professional chemist and have worked in drug discovery for more than 20 years. I'm presently a consultant, with expertise in polymer therapeutics and biomaterials.

Why you choose your name: My name is David and I go by "revhtree" which is a combo of my profession and last name! I am also known as just "rev" because I am a reverend/pastor at a local church here in my city.

Years in the Hobby: I have been in this hobby almost 11 years and have always had some sort of reef tank or another! I love all things ocean and reef related because it reminds me of the awesomeness of my creator!

Current tank specs: Currently I am downgraded to a 120g mixed reef. I have plans in the works for an 8 foot in the wall reef very soon! MUHAA MUHAA!

Tank Build: Here is my current tank build but it is desperate need of updating! Maybe soon! HA! https://www.reef2reef.com/forums/member-tanks/141224-revs-120g-reef.html

Area of strength in the hobby: I would have to say being a part of running this forum which is a place that helps the hobby as a whole grow, grow, grow!

Favorite hobby outside reefing: Outside of reefing I love spending time with my family, and watching Crimson Tide football!

I feel very blessed to be a part of this hobby and to be a part of the Reef2Reef community. My life has truly been enriched by the friends that I have met because of keeping the water filled glass boxes! Hope to see you all at local reef shows soon!
