Hello hello!

My name is Chris, just moved here to Nashville from San Diego a few weeks ago. I owned and operating an aquarium servicing company is SD for the last 15 years - sold it last month, moved here to Nashville, and am buying a smaller established servicing company here as well... hitting the ground running! Will be starting up a small coral aquaculture setup at some point.

Hoping tofinally set up a decent personal reef tank as well.. maybe a 180+.

Current pets include (2) dogs, (10) Poison Dart Frogs, Russian Tortoise, Softshell Turtle, and (2) Conures

Howdy! :)

Chris, aka"LotsoaFishies" I've seen that name around San Diego. Best of luck and success in the new location. I can't blame you for leaving California. Glad you will still be around here!

Welcome to Reef2Reef

Heyo! Indeed, I was very active and had a very strong presence on the “SanDiegoReefs” forum.. had been on there for ~17 years!

I’m a Cali transplant also. Left there almost 8 years ago and never looked back. I’m in Dickson County now, just west of you.
Welcome to the forum!

Oh nice! I was out in Centerville this morning for a client, then up to Brentwood & Belle Meade

Will be picking up a custom tank for a client from Glass Cages, there in Dickson, near the end of the month!

You own a bird shop???
We have a Grey and a Senegal. Had some great bird shops in CA. Now everything comes from Chewy. Used to buy from Fosters and Smith but they sold out to Petco. Always willing to travel a little for a good bird shop.

Would you consider your tank to be balanced or lopsided when it comes to coral?
