New to r2r and this site has already helped me out so much! I like this so much better than fb groups. Fb people tend to get bashed when they are newer and made a mistake doing something. On r2r it doesn’t seem like that at all. It feels like on here that others are truly here to help and give advice and guidance. So it’s a nice feeling to know people are in here to help. So drop me a message or reply and introduce yourself. A little about me, I’m an automotive technician here in Alabama that loves saltwater aquariums and reefs. I’m really big into nano tanks! I’ve had your really big tanks but I enjoy the success and challenges of a nano tank!

Welcome! Glad you joined and introduced yourself.

I'm not a big FB fan either but more because of security breaches over the years (and with a super strong password, and dual authentication, somehow I was recently locked out of my own FB page and after a week finally started a new FB login - sad).

Have you considered starting your build thread? I found its a great place to document my tank's evolution for myself. Like you, 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)

Welcome! :)

I enjoy this forum over the FB groups, as well. There's only one that I even bother with now. Excited to see your build!
