    Heh, you stole my idea and beat me to posting this!

    My name is Jason Brunken and I'm in Marion. I've been in this hobby since May of 2006 when my wife made the mistake of dragging me to the pet shop to get an upgrade to my daughters 1G gold fish tank. Quite possibly the most expensive mistake my wife has ever made! /site/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/_default/emoticons/cool.gif

    Tank Info:
    125G Mixed Reef
    40G Refugium
    30G Sump
    Octopus DNW-200 Recirc skimmer
    3 x 250W 14K Metal Halide Pendants
    4 x 39W T5 Actinics
    ACJR Controlling it all.

    I am in cedar rapids and i iowa city. I am a student at the u of i, I am in my 2nd year. I maintain my moms tank that is 180 that is in the process of being put into the wall. It is pretty much a fish only tank for now. It will eventually with time and money become a reef tank. At my place i have a 90 gallon that is in a bar stand. It is a reef tank with only a few fish. I recently made the mistake of putting a lunare wrasse in there and it killed three fish within a week. I do mostly softies some lps,not many sps.

    My name is Josh Blasdell and i live on the NE side of CR. I have been in the hobby about 8 years now with my first saltwater tank being a 55 softie tank. I have a 40 gallon barebottom with 150w 14k halide and actinic PC's. CPR backpak skimmer and aquaclear 5000 H.O.B. filter. It is an enclosed system stuffed with soft corals. I have my 75 gallon SPS tank sitting in the closet that is waiting to be set up again as soon as i move in to my new house. Although i have grown quite fond of the ease of maintenance and flow of the corals in the current that the soft corals offer.

    Some day we should go to see each others tanks, and give advice, compliments, etc. It would be fun.

    Im down for that! Sounds like a good way to get to know the rest of the reefgeeks in the area. God knows my gf wishes there were someone else for me to talk tank to, I think its driving her crazy.

    I'd be in too, but the reason the last CR/IC tank tour failed was because nobody stepped up to the plate to organize it. Unless someone does this time, I doubt if it will happen. If someone does want to be the organizer, they should step up and start a new thread!

    hi, i have been lurking on all the large nano reef boards for about a year and a half but, found they were too large and what valuable info they had to offer was disorganized and hard to find while sifting through all the bs. a fellow iowan on nano-reef.com referred me to this site and so i decided to shed my lurking shell.

    i don't have anything set up yet but, look to start with a 12g system within the next few weeks. so...i will probably be asking for a lot of advice and opinions.

    forgive me for my lack of using capitalized text and limited punctuation. my notebook has defective caps and shift keys.

    be well,
    ben
