    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 3 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. Having 3 jobs doesn't help in the hobby department. ;)

    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.

    So, I'm having a hard time locating recent pictures on my new laptop. So here goes....

    My wedding day. These are some of my favorite people right here. That's my sister on the far right and my husband on the left closest to me. It's one of my favorite pictures of the day. It shows our weird, fun side perfectly.

    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
    [​IMG] So I guess that's it. Nice to meet ya'll

    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.

    Age:
    35(as of this date)

    Why I chose my screen name:

    I used to be a waiter where the biggest meal was breakfast. Also, it's just good advice.

    Current tank:
    Deep Blue 80g rimless tank. 2x 250w Phoenix halides

    Wrasse and sps dominant

    Areas of strength:
    Fish behavior and compatibility, reef fish nutrition, and general reef knowledge.

    Other hobbies and interests:
    I am very religious and involved with activities relating to that.

    I have 2 young sons(ages 3 and 5 as of 3/11/17) so always on my toes with them.

    Useless information, which is even less valuable in this day and age of Google. Related to that, interesting facts about nature.

    Watching movies and tv.

    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!
