Hello, James McIntosh
Just moved to Arizona. Have a 10 gallon nano- it is very basic. Switched my reef over to freshwater Discus prior to the move. Hope to make a meeting or two, but live up in Glendale.

Hi everyone,

I am Trey Smith. I have been in the hobby for a little over a year, but not been very active in the forums.

I have a 30g mixed reef tank in my office, and I am almost done building an LED powered 100g dual view in-wall at home :-) Thanks for all your help Ryan! (NaClH20NMYVEIN)

Hi Everyone,

My husband and I just recently joined reef central because we were recommended to this site by numerous friends. Our names obviously are Josh & Jen. We have been in the saltwater hobby for over 8years. My first tank was a 125 gallon swim tank. After 5years of having a swim only tank we upgraded to a 50 gallon reef tank. Then a year later we upgraded to a 75 gallon reef tank. Then 4 months ago we made a HUGE upgrade and now have a 300 gallon reef tank. This tank is our pride and joy, well besides our two little brats (hehe). Fish are amazing and I love that every fish has there own little personalities. Like my royal gamma who like to be silly and swim backwards upside down. So many lil things make the reef tanking SO worth it.....

Me and My Reef

I've been in and out of the hobby over the past 10 years. I'm currently IN. This is the farthest I've taken the hobby.... Lots of success.... some failures.... Previously little success... lots of failures :-)

Just realized I never posted a post in this thread! I thought I had!

Been into Saltwater aquariums (mainly FOWLR) for about 15 years, got into reefing about 3 years ago. I haven't made any of the FRAG events because I work every other Saturday, and live in NW Phoenix, so on the couple I have been off for, I have had a hard time getting over that way. I just today finished setting up my newest, biggest ever tank, a 155 gallon bowfront, so I plan on making the next PROP auction to try and start building up some new inhabitants.

This is a recent picture of me (on the far left), my wife (on the far right), and my three kids. Not in this picture are my four grandkids, who are the light of my life. Sadly, two days after this picture was taken, my oldest daughter (next to me) and her husband moved to Georgia and took two of the four grandkids with them, so I don;t get to spoil them every day, but I do Skype with them frequently!



When you grandkids dare you to get a face tattoo at Disneyland, Sharkface is the result!

Current Tank Info: Currently a 29 gallon bullet shaped all-in-one reef tank and a 155 gallon bow-front tank with a 55 gallon sump slowly building into my dream tank!
