    Back again

    So I was in the hobby here in Orlando from about '08 to '11
    Moved away and had my reef tank until '13. Moved back to Orlando in '15 and just bought a house last summer. Now that we are somewhere permanent I've jumped back in the hobby. I have a 60 gallon cube corner drilled currently cycling but found my sump is losing water somehow. Whether it be splashing out or leaking I haven't been able to tell. So for now I have a backup sump I'm getting ready to replumb in. Also since the larger original sump is being replaced I can build and am building a new stand to fit the tank. Right now the stand is so big it's almost like sitting in a table top. I will post to another thread how the build is going. I'm in the hobby on a poor man's budget I like and do a lot of diy projects. I have a wife who homeschools our children so this serves as a learning tool for them in the construction and science biology fields. So I'm glad to be back. I have this new account because I couldn't remember my other.

    Welcome Larry hope to see you at a meeting. If you Pm me your email address ill add you to the mass mailer for the club info. I have a bunch of dry clean marco rock if you need it.. cheap.. Probably some basic corals as well to see how its stability is once your going.
    Four individual systems Right now.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 softies set up.
    550 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, 3 50 gallon attached SPS frag systems lite with a combination of HM and LED and T5 fixtures.

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties. 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!!!!
