Hello! Thanks for reading this! I'm a long time hobbyist. I run a YouTube channel called Alasdair Aquatics which follows my fishkeeping journey. I have over 15 years of experience with planted freshwater tanks however my reef experience is limited. I am looking to get back into the saltwater side of the hobby. I have kept 3 reef tanks in the past (all but one were failures and were over run with pests) and am in the process of setting up a new nano reef and taking the plunge once again, I plan to one day setup a larger reef showcasing bubble tip anemone and clownfish symbiosis, I know it has been done many times but this is my future goal👍 My plan is to journal my new nano reef and occasionally start discussions related to nano reef topics I find interesting! Nice to meet you! Alasdair Aquatics - Alasdair McPhail
Hi all! I am a new member to the forum. You can call me Scales! I have over 8 years experience with aquariums, the majority of that experience being with freshwater. I have two 5 gallon betta tanks and one 29 gallon planted community with an angelfish, a school of rainbowfish, and a school of false julii corydoras. My one true love is freshwater, but I'm excited to start my personal journey with saltwater tanks! I am a student in college and I am actually pursuing a degree in aquarium science at the University of New England. I am a research manager in the UNE Aquarium Science and Conservation Lab, where we breed clownfish and culture corals. I also have my own research project in the lab, where we are breeding betta splendens to study the marble gene and its link to cancer. I have worked in the lab for 3 years now so I have experience caring for saltwater systems, but I have never had a saltwater tank of my own. I will be converting an old 10 gallon tank to saltwater. It will be mostly FOWLR but I am going to add some green star polyp from my lab. Excited to be here!
