    Soon to be Lake Mary, currently San Diego

    Newbie to FL

    Hi all, going to be a recent transplant to Lake Mary in mid-late Dec from San Diego. I'm a pretty long hobbyists but have been living tankless for several years as my work travel proved to be a bit much. Have a feeling it won't be long till I get a new project in the works and looking forward to finally owning a home. Hope to meet some fellow reefers and learn the hot spots for corals, etc., in the area once I get there.

    Welcome. Looking forward to meeting you. OREO Club members meet once a month. We could have a general discussion, a speaker, a frag event, a bbq, a DIY, etc. We do try to mix it up.

    If you private message me a email address ill add you to our monthly email blast so you get a heads up on the meetings and the content. Were working to get that back in order as I type this. I'm trying to link the forums only members, the paid club members, and stragglers like face book only and so forth into one email group sop everyone gets the reminders. Ill make a dedicated tread so folks can respond if they don't start seeing the reminders in the next few weeks. Hope to see you at a meeting. We have a great speaker lined up for January.
    Four individual systems Right now.
    Modified Red sea 250 with attached 20 gal frag system XR15 pro light on FRAG tank, combo t5 reef bright led on main tank, now @100 gal total mostly sps tank, auto WC, Custom life reef filtration system Fuge and skimmer. KALK ATO chiller mp10's.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 quarantine set up.
    500 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 18 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 60" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, attached SPS frag system and LPS frag system.
    I am expanding into this one ATM bit by bit,

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties and a FRAG saw will be in my future I think. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    THANKS Orlando Reef Educators Organization!!!!
