    I'm Dave and I'm in Des Moines, well Urbandale actually.  New to Salt water, had fresh for years until.....well, that's a long story.  Best told in a dark, smokey,.....wait, can't smoke inside any more.  OK, dark, unsmokey, corner with a strong cocktail! 
    I have a 54 gal corner all glass since Dec '08.  Whish I had found you guys sooner.  Being my age....40+....the internet is not the first place that comes to mind when looking for advice.  I know, it should be!  Glad I'm here now and looking forward to meeting a lot of you!!

    Welcome to the forums Dave. As xroads said, DSM has a nice number of club members and the DSM regional trustees have done a great job scheduling events in your area including the Spring Frag Swap last month and the tank tour coming up in a few weeks. Read more about the tank tour and other Des Moines events in their regional forum here (http://www.greateriowareefsociety.o...fault.aspx). Good luck!
