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!

Rev, you don't have anyone whose passion and expertise are macros!

We'll have to see about that :)
as that's what I love the most!

Oops, yes maybe you do and I don't know about them. I would love to as I am developing an interest in macros and could certainly benefit from another's experience. :)

I am learning since I have a fair amount of macro algae in my seahorse tank but I would still consider myself a novice. I hope to keep learning about all the different varieties and their needs.

First Name: Kevin

Age: 31

Why you choose your screen name: Its my first initial and last name. Pretty boring but I have used it for a long time.

Current tank specs: 57g rimless and 30g frag tank.
https://www.reef2reef.com/forums/showthread.php?t=132739
Area of strength in the hobby: I really enjoy the planning and building of systems so plumbing, planning, and some DIY.

Favorite hobbies outside of reefing: Fishing when I can find time and also building wood fishing lures.

What you enjoy most about the saltwater hobby: The freshwater side of the hobby was passed to me from my father so that plays a big role in my enjoyment. Also having a piece of nature in my home is great. I love the relaxing feeling I get looking at the tank after a long day of work.

First Name:
George


Why You chose your screen name:
I chose this name because I am half Korean and half czech, hence I am a "hybrid" Asian lol.


Current Tank Specs:
6'x2'x2' 180 gallon SPS reef. It's been thru some rough times lately but is on the up and up

Build thread if you would like to follow:

http://reef2reef.com/threads/hybridazns-180-gallon-build.189795/


Area of strength in the hobby:
I consider myself a jack of all trades, I especially enjoy SPS corals but also keep acans, zoas and chalices. Basically anything that my wife and I find appeasing. I try to do as much diy as I can, but if it doesn't make sense financially or worth my time I have no problem pulling the trigger on something already made haha.


Favorite hobby outside reefing:
Building race cars, I've been wrenching since I got my first dirt bike when I was 12. My first decent car build was when I was 17 and I acquired a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse turbo. It took about 4 years to build it to what I liked and back in 2004 it made over 500 wheel hp, which back then was a lot for a street driven 4 cylinder.

Here's another pic of it with my buddy's 240sx that at the time had a sr20det swap (around 2003-2004 before they became a common swap)

Car has been since sold :( and I regret it. I now have this:

2005 Suzuki gsxr 600 with a few mods. It's not the fastest but it gets me around until I can get my next car project going.


So some details about me, I'm 33 years old and I have been married for 9 years (10 years in july) to my beautiful wife who puts up with me and my crazy hobbies lol. We have 1 daughter who is 3 years old and the love of our lives. She def keeps us on our toes

My daughter Jasmine and I riding a train at Christmas time lol

My wife, daughter and myself being goofy lol

Well I think that is the basics. Anything else feel free to ask, I'm pretty easy going.
