Let's face it, this hobby can be challenging. We may be new to the hobby, we could be trying a method that is new to us, or maybe we are facing a problem that is new to us, but we can all use help and advice from time to time. If you find yourself in this situation, Reef2Reef might be able to help.

One way to get help is to call on the Reef Squad. The Reef Squad is a group of dedicated volunteers who help make Reef2Reef the special place we love. They are a diverse group that range from new reefers to people who have been in the hobby for 20+ years. They may be experts in coral, fish disease, controllers, inverts, plumbing, DIY, or just friendly people who help make R2R better. What they all have in common is that they enjoy helping people.

So how can you take advantage of this group of volunteers? You can call out to them by typing #Reefsquad along with your question or concern.

Are you interested in learning more about who is in the Reef Squad? You can find out about many of them here!

So we've touched on what the Reef Squad is but let's talk about what they are not. Most importantly, they are not the only source of useful information. We have a large number of very experienced members who can also offer fantastic advice. It could be a mistake to not listen to the advice from another member just because they are not on the Reef Squad.

The Reef Squad are also not forum moderators. We have a separate team that handles those responsibilities. . If you see a post that doesn't fit the family friendly nature of Reef2Reef please use the Report function under the post and bring it to the moderators attention. Or, if you see where someone went above and beyond in helping someone you can report that too. It doesn't need to be negative!

You can learn more about the Moderators here!

Maybe you would prefer trying to find someone in your area who can help you?
You can find more information about the local forum sections here.

Of course, Reef2Reef wouldn't be what it is without all of our members.
If you want to share more about yourself or see who else is using Reef2Reef we have a thread for that here!

Hmm... It's almost as if the Reef Squad actually pays attention when the hashtag is used! ;):p

Some do, some don't, some are here a lot and some have other things going on in their lives too. But we all try! :cool:;Nailbiting;Bookworm
