    Hello - New Member

    Hi,

    My name is Robert and I live in Apopka. Getting back into this hobby after a 10 year time-off. Never really was an expert or even that good, but did manage to keep a little 30 gallon reef tank going for 5 years - with very limited die offs (If I remember I lost a leather coral). Anyway..looking to get a new tank setup from Craiglist in the 75-125 gallon range. Will build a refugium for this one....that should be fun. Ok..going to read the forums. Looking forward to talking to all the folks on the site.

    Welcome Robert!

    Glad to see that I am not the only one that has returned after about 10 years of absence.

    There is a meeting on the 24th. Come meet all of the great people that are enjoying this hobby.

    Hope to see you there!

    Steve's right, come to a meeting, you'll really enjoy it! You'll find that itíll make you that much more excited about getting the new tank set up and running. That and you'll find a wealth of information amongst the members....but don't worry not everyone is an oldie at it...the club is a strong mix of both new and old and we have tons of fun experiences to share and learning from each other.....

    hope you can make it!
