I figured if I was going to leach information and knowledge from everyone here, I might as well introduce myself.

Name is Matt, I’m a firefighter/paramedic in southeast Louisiana. Recently set up my first salt water tank. I’ve had several fresh over the years. Tank is a Fluval Evo. Mostly stock.

Hi Matt and Welcome! Glad you joined.

Have you considered starting your build thread? I found its a great place to document my tank's evolution for myself. I started tank first then joined, so I'm still finding myself going back collecting pictures & updating historically as well as current state. Once you create your first post in your thread and link it to your account, they will give you build badge (look left, under my ID)

This might help you find people local to you in Louisiana:

This is a good reference book type online article I still review:

Awesome! I was wondering how to find where members are from.

I’m hoping I can find some local people to learn from.
