    I'm right at the point of getting ready to put water into it. But I live in Cocoa Beach Florida. So I guess I am lucky that I took my time. Cause it looks like we are going to get hammered with Mathew the Class 4 hurricane it is going to go right over our town/house. We will see by Sunday if I even have a home left let alone an aquarium. I have been through a lot of hurricanes ( compared to most people) and this is by far the worst one that I have seen hit this area. It is beautiful to live down here(great weather year around, beautiful beaches and lots of fun things to do) but this is the price we pay sometimes. But I do really like the website and am grateful for how people treat you and help you without making you feel like a idiot when you ask a question because you didn't know something. Anyway I gotta get back to boarding up my home.

    Thanks guys, what you guys do for this hobby is exactly what keeps this hobby existing and growing. Without help a lot of people would just give up at the first bacterial bloom.

    A little overdue with this, but here it goes...

    First Name:
    David

    Why you chose your screen name:
    Well I could tell you it stands for ‘double’ because I’m a twin , or I’m double trouble, or it has a double meaning. The reality is, it’s not that exciting, it’s just my initials.

    Current tank specs:
    120g peninsula mixed reef

    Build thread:
    Main Tank Build thread can be found here
    Mobile QT/Frag Tank can be found here

    Area of strength in the hobby:

    I can honestly say I still learn something every day. I enjoy designing and putting systems together, including building stands. I guess it’s easiest just to stay I’m a Jack of all trades and a master of none!

    Favorite hobby outside reefing:

    I enjoy golfing and actually used to be very good, but don’t play much any more. I also love woodworking and have been focusing on getting back in to that hobby lately.

    How long have you been reef keeping:
    Just about four years now, but I still consider myself a rookie.

    It was 30 years ago this past May that I married my high school sweatheart, so we’ve actually been together for 36 years. We’ve raised two daughters; well she raised two daughters and I just take all the credit. Eldest was married last year and the younger one just finished college in May and is now gainfully employed forging her own way too.

    God has blessed us in so many ways and we so very thankful for our family and friends. I’m also blessed with the many new friends and family I’ve met here on R2R, many of which I’ve never met in person. So I’ve got that to look forward to!

    Happy Reefing!

    Area of strength in the hobby

    None really, and I say this because every day is a new learning experience in this hobby. If I must say, you will see me dabbling in DIY, Lighting, chemistry, and disease for corals and fish.

    What else do I do outside of reefing

    Cook, woodworking, building computers things that are challenging.

    How long have I had tanks?

    I started about 35 years ago with fresh water tanks. I had a 35 hex, 75 gallons and a 150 at one-point fresh water. I had to sell off the 75 and the 150 and converted my 35 in to my first saltwater tank. Some how I broke the front glass of the 35 with a coffee cup feeding the fish with frozen. I upgraded to a 75 the next day. I have pretty much had 75-gallon tanks from then on.

    I have taken some breaks along the way, current system is my most successful system by far with all the improvement in reef keeping.

    First Name: Jason

    Why You chose your screen name: Well, I owned 4 Fords. I sold one, but I’ll be at 4 or 5 in short order I’m a bit addicted to automobiles. I’ve had 26 Fords now, all but one I’ve loved. I used to flip cars to get through college and I’ve had many old Fords with 300-468k miles on the original drivetrain. I currently own a 2012 F150 4x4, 2013 Fusion Titanium, and a 2016 Explorer Sport AWD. Next will be a 1970 or so classic mustang, considering a 2018 expedition, and GT500 if I get my money right!

    Well, they said to bring pics.

    Current Tank Specs:
    Well as of right now I have a 180 reef with tons of tangs and inexpensive easy coral. I also have a Red Sea reefer 170 I won here for the partner member contest. At one point though I had a 125 wrasse reef with 20 wrasse in it, a 180 angel tank with 8 angels in it, and my tang tank had 8 tangs or so in it.

    For the moment though, that’s it. I’m planning a 10-12 foot wall tank for the future— for the large angels long-term! Stay tuned!

    520081D4-D02B-4045-9CA3-EC55869329C2.jpeg

    To be truthfully honest it depresses me to see pics of my tank after the accident Feb 2017 when I lost 2/3 tanks aforementioned and a whole quarantine full of fish ready to come out to a power outage while on vacation. I don’t take many pics of it for that reason I suspect.

    Build Thread:

    https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/modest-beginnings-of-my-last-180.327776/

    Will be one for the wall tank, featuring my “handy” guy @HotRocks (we live within 5 minutes of each other and are close friends outside of the forum, many of you know him as the Hanna Copper Checker Guy! :D)

    Area of strength in the hobby:

    Fish and fish disease. I know my fish well, I know my expert level fish well (idols, regals, leopard wrass, etc) and I am primarily on the fish disease forum. Tangs, angels, and wrasse are and have been about 90% of my inhabitants. I stock tanks heavily (I really struggle with moderation...)

    Favorite hobby outside reefing:

    Cars. Hands down. I like customizing them (or designing them and letting someone else do the work because I have zero patience and break everything I touch — I’m not handy).

    How long have you been reef keeping:

    13 years now. I’ve had 3-4 tanks running at any given time since the start. Including quarantines I guess I’m at 4.

    More Info:

    I am married since 2012 to my beautiful wife. As of now I have a 2 year old son and 4 year old daughter (currently my avatar).

    I am a sales manager and I also secure jumbo reverse mortgages for wealthy clients to use as financial tools. I studied undergraduate at IU Kelley School of Business in Indianapolis Indiana with degrees in Marketing and International business. I have an MBA from Butler University. I also have an economics minor, something I am very interested in as well, but that’s a controversial topic I will leave it at that.

    I’m a pretty direct person, I have a pretty bad sense of humor I don’t really show here, and I am a very blessed, God-fearing man. Happy reefing!
