        I was glad to see we had a club in our state!  I just moved back to Iowa after 5 years in the Navy.  I am new to the hobby(about 2 months), but did about 3 months of research before diving in.  I bought a 12 year old 75 gallon established reef setup.  It is stable using only its own natural filtration and weekly 5gal water changes, but I am in the process of building a sump and adding a skimmer for peace of mind if I add more fish.  Right now it is stocked with 2 common clowns, 1 purple dottyback, 1 green bubbletip, lots of mushrooms, and several leathers and soft coral(thanks phishcrazee!).  Anyway, I am hear to learn as much as I can about this great hobby.  If only I could pronounce half of the things I read!..LOL  Also..Looking to add more coral varieties and a tang.   Advice is always welcome! see  you in the forums.

    Welcome to the club, Jonathon.  Glad to see that you got some stuff from Fawn also.

    Not only is this a great site/club for the state, but your helping in adding the leverage to the eastern side of the state.  And don't forget about the November fall fest.  You can save some money by registering before the 15th.
