    Hello everyone!

    I joined C-sea a little while ago but never really took part in the forum. It wasn't until today that I saw an email about the next club meeting. However, before I go I feel I should participate some on the page and introduce myself and my tank.

    I'm 27 and my tank has taken over my hobby life although I am getting back into other things.

    I am fortunate enough to get plenty of time with my tank everyday and I am constantly tweaking things. I like to build equipment and try and run my tank as low cost and low maintenance as possible.

    So here's a run down!

    Inhabitants:
    1 Ocellarus Clownfish
    1 Misbar Darwin Clownfish
    1 Yellow Corris Wrasse
    1 Royal Gramma
    1 Fire fish
    1 Mccosker Flasher Wrasse
    1 Dispar Anthias
    3 Blue-green Chromis
    1 Mandarin
    1 Yellow tang
    1 Cleaner shrimp
    And a handful of snails

    Equipment:
    DIY PVC 1 inch overflow
    DIY 3 chamber sump
    DIY Counter Current Protien Skimmer
    DIY tank tops
    2 Black Box LEDs
    Jebao RW-15 and a 1500gph powerhead
    Apex Lab Grade Kit and Breakout Box ATO
    I run 1 filter sock and use a huge amount of Lava Rock for bio-media.

    Maintenance:
    I clean my entire tank every Monday and do a 10%-20% water change. By cleaning I mean I change my socks, scrape the walls, brush the rocks, and siphon the sandbed.
    Everyday I test for ALK and I test Calcium 2 times a week.

    Corals:
    I have a pretty good mix of Softies,LPS, and SPS corals. I've just recently gotten into Acropora and am having decent success. It's hard for me to pick a favorite Coral right now.


    And some pictures!

    Well....we are glad you finally decided to jump in ! Very nice tank ! I love the d.i.y. approach. Its good to see your hands on approach. I always like when people can share their "less expensive " ways of doing things. We all know how expensive this hobby can be. We hope you continue to be active in the club. You should try and make it to the picnic this Saturday. Not only will you be able to get to meet some of us, but also get some great deals on very nice corals at Frost's house ! Hope to see you there.

    We also hope you decide to become a paid club member. It's only twenty bucks a year for a full family membership. It's not much money in today's world, but it helps us to keep the club running. It also has some great percs! Just a couple to mention that we have done recently are the coral give away where all in attendance took home many free frags. We also went to the Cleveland Aquarium at the minimal cost of five bucks a person instead of over twenty a person to get in. We also do picnics like the ine this Saturday....and many more cool family events. Hope you are able to make this weekend.

    Welcome to the club Bee, nice setup!

    Paid membership also gets you access to all the club equipment like the par meter.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! Do we have an app or Facebook page? Maybe my fiancé will allow me to become a paid member for Father's Day. I'm really excited to get into a good community of aquarists especially more local.

    We have a p.c. website, a mobile ap and a facebook page. I personally am a computer idiot, so I am not the one to ask for advice, but there are a bunch of good people in the club that will help you in any way we can. We hope she supports you in joining the club ! Remember, this is a family based club, and if you consider her family, so do we ! So she will be part of our community also. You hoth missed a great time today. We had a nice cookout and had the opportunity to buy excellent corals at unbelievable prices ! Not to mention a ton of raffle prizes. We all had a good time. Read some of the posts under "June Meeting". Not many places to get such value for a $20.00 membership in today's world ! See ya soon !

    Never really see how much 3 months time changes your tank

    If I was not scared to cut I would share these beauties. They are awesome, sorry for pic but tank is a little dirty and lights were off.

    Nevermind pic will load off phone. It's my yellow and my pink sun coral wide awake.

    Couldn't really tell what you had in there, the pictures are not that good and that is to be expected with the blue light and nothing was close up. What are the names of them? I will look them up.
