    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.

    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)
    Screenshot_2016-01-14-04-16-05-1.png

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

    Screenshot_2016-03-30-19-23-54-1.png
    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

    FB_IMG_1459380574845.jpg
    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.

    Yup, along with a full Yoshimura header-back exhaust, k&n filter with velocity stacks. Next up I think is a 60 shot nitrous (dry)

    Why you choose your screen name: It's easy to remember since it's my email

    Area of strength in the hobby: Fish disease and diagnosis, Clownfish and a little about a lot of other stuff. I work at a LFS near me and tend to have to keep myself polished up on corals and fish and even equipment or else my customers would be very disappointed.

    Favorite hobbies outside of reefing: I love to garden, though I'm not very good at it. My 5 year old son takes up a lot of time, but I guess that's not really a hobby is it? I do enjoy reading and have a few favorite series that I tend to stick with and reread occasionally.

    What you enjoy most about the saltwater hobby: I love learning new things every day, helping others, and seeing the fruits of hard labor, thought, time and money come to bare. It's amazing to look back at an early full tank shot and then look at the tank now. All the changes and growth is just amazing to me. Most of all, I love the friends I have made through this hobby. They are wonderful people that I'm proud and blessed to know.


    Me and my son. I was a stay at home mom for 3 years so I have tons of pictures of us together. He's my most favorite person in the world and my husband is totally cool with being #2. That's why he's #2 and not #3 lol.

    One of my birthdays. My husband tends to take me to the World Aquarium in Dallas when he can't think of anything else to do for my birthday. He knows me well enough to know I still love it. :D

    So I guess that's it. It's nice to meet y'all.
