I'm fairly new here and I thought I'd start a thread to show everyone what I'm about. My passion for saltwater began when I was 18 in 2001 my first year out of the dorms and on my own in my first apartment I got a fish only 30g tank. After enjoying fish and taking a few heavy traveled years off from the hobby I returned with a new drive to learn about corals. I had a bunch of tanks but never a fish. At one point I had well over 10 tanks in a one bedroom apartment. I reduced the number of tanks and got one larger tank. I worked for a year and a half on that tank design before I completed it. It was a raceway setup with interior walls to direct and concentrate flow. Each raceway tank was connected to the next via gravity so many tanks could be ran off just one pump. After spending a year with this larger 120g raceway system and still having more tanks I decided I wanted to move the aquariums out of my home. After 8 months at a warehouse I moved into the larger double unit warehouse that I am currently in. My plans have been the same for a while. I want to help the ocean by not taking from it. I want to grow my corals and breed my fish instead of buy from wild wholesalers. I still haven't sold anything I'm currently trying to build up the infrastructure here and develop an aquaculture system that works. I have 5 people helping here in all different ways. Many other people that dont live close have also helped out a ton. Everyday there are new possibilities and we meet new people along the road. In January I rekindled my old passion for fish and decided to set up some larger fish holding, raising, hatching, and seperation systems, each over 700g. I am really happy I decided to keep fish again they are a pleasure to watch. There is so much I want to share but for now I'll just post some cool pics and we will go from there
Here is my first raceway system setup in October 2009
This is the ATS thats part of it
Here is my first coral reef nano from around 2006
