Hi - I am Jeanette - I live in Boone, Ia. I currently have a 90 gallon saltwater tank. It has been up and running for about 10 years now - I inherited it in May and have really enjoyed it. I had a partial crash last night/DesktopModules/ActiveForums/themes/_default/emoticons/angry.gif and realized that I need to have some contacts around here so, hopefully we can help each other out and NEVER have that happen again. Unfortunately, I have to admit that the crash was my own fault - I convinced my sister (the previous owner of the tank) to buy a sea apple about 3 years ago and he went toxic last night. I have now lost all fish except 1 (amazingly enough ot is the blue chromis that survived - supposedly the most fragile fish I have - err, had) I do plan on restocking my tank as soon as everything is safe again - it really looks sad right now as I lost most of the corals too!! So, that is me in a nutshell - I had always wondered if there was a group around Des Moines - but never looked into it very much - will plan on comming to Des Moines for the informal get togethers now though - as I think it would be great to meet others who share my love of fish!
