Who is Randy and what is the Reef Chemistry Forum?

Welcome to the Reef Chemistry Forum!

My name is Randy Holmes-Farley and I'm one of the chemistry moderators of the Reef Chemistry Forum here at reef Central. In addition to having had a reef tank for more than 10 years, I am also a professional chemist. I have pasted a copy of my resume in some of the subsequent posts in this thread so that you can have some idea of my background before you decide whether I am adequately prepared to answer your chemistry questions.

At the end of this post is a link to a picture of me so that you can have something close to accurate in mind when you think of me discussing something:

This forum was set up several years ago to provide a place for any discussions related to chemistry, especially as it relates to marine aquaria.

Any questions or observations are welcome. No matter how simple or complicated it may seem, it is welcome. I will respond to any question posted here, even if the answer is "I don't know".

There are also many regular contributors to this forum that are themselves experts in chemistry, and they too provide many useful answers to questions, as well as providing stimulating debate. Their input is most especially valued in those many areas where no clear cut answer is known (e.g., what effect do organics have on the iodine cycle).

In my opinion, scientific debates make the forum more interesting than it otherwise might be, and provide learning experiences for us all. So if you disagree with something that anyone has posted, or just have a different take on some issue, feel free to chime in with a different opinion!

Forgive me in advance if my answers sometimes seem too complicated for your taste. Likewise, please understand if they seem too simplistic. Given the range of chemistry abilities of forum readers, from zero chemistry understanding to people with PhDs is chemistry, it is sometimes hard for me to know how much detail the questioner is really interested in. In most cases, I'll probably provide more than you think you want.

Happy Reefing!

Here's a picture of me from Feb 2004:
