Hi all! My name is Jason and my wife and I moved to SLC from Cincinnati in June. Because of the move, I had to get rid of my old biocube but I hope to get a new reef tank up and running soon!

Adam and other fish lovers, I'm glad to be back.  YEARS ago I had a 125 reef tank, but my TV went out, and the wife made me sell it so my kids could watch Sponge Bob :-)

Now I am back and I'm setting up a little Fluval 12 gal tank in my kitchen for the fam... OK... ME!

It is just starting to cycle and I hope to be putting a fish in it on Christmas for the kids when they wake up.  I currently just have stock stuff that it came with in there, but someday want to figure out a better lighting system so I can add coral.  I have about 6 pounds of live rock right now and also have live sand, so we'll see how things go these next few weeks.

Been out of it awhile,,, any advice?  Know anyone who has live rock they want to help a brother out as cheap as possible - Looking to add another 6 pounds...

Glad to be back - There is nothing like salt water fish tanks... And where it's going in my living room is RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING on the island counter top in between the kitchen and living room... Should be sweet!

Still getting used to this website, but from what I remember, THIS SITE ROCKS!!!!!

Hi my name is Aaron

I have actually known about you guys for a long time. My dad and younger brother were big into reef tanks about 10 years ago and I use to go along with them on the reef tours you guys have. I have even come here to look at pictures and stuff but never registered and never been real serious about my tanks in the past. 

That all changed recently when I pulled my old ehiem glass aquarium out of the closet and cleaned it up. I looked at it for a while then made the mistake of putting water in it... Its small but in the past month I have upgraded the light fixture twice. Ordered my first ever canister filter and about 800 dollars of other junk. I am even in the process of a DIY swing arm LED hanger for the new fixture I got coming. 

The best decision I have made so far was taking the girlfriend/future wife up to bird world and getting her to pick out a coral. She picked a cool hammer coral and now I can pretty much do or buy whatever I can afford, as long as we go back and get one of those "cute" clams she saw in there. Im not trying to pimp a store, I just live by the capitol so its close. 

I am really wanting to move away from the LFS and get into a community where I can buy, and maybe someday, sell cool things, especially frags, with regular people. (plus I really don't want a tank full of pale purple, tan, and green livestock, so that eliminates most local stores) I'm hoping that is what this group is about. I would love to go to meetings and meet peeps and have somewhere to go to get 3 pounds of live sand and not a 15 lb bag that I'm never going to use. At the very lease I would rather give coral frags away that I no longer want, to people that I know, than take them to a pet store and have them try to tell me how worthless they are and offer me peanuts just to go back a few days later and they want 80$ for my "I get those in all the time, average looking frag" that I had to buy off of ebay because I can't find anything like that here in Utah. OK, rant over. sorry.  

Anyways, I look forward to getting to know you guys and grow my tank.  Smile

Thanks guys. I was wondering if they were part of this group or if they just knew a bunch a people because they were always buying stuff. Neither of them have tanks anymore. 

Jared, the younger brother, had a 165gal? tank while he lived with my dad and down in Lehi for a while but he sold it when he went to dental school. He just barely graduated 18 months ago and took a job in Texas. My pops, Kim, had a 155gal? that he kinda let go to ruin after my brother moved out forever ago. He is really big into birds and ponds now. He is installing a diesel radiator on the roof of his house as a solar water heater so he can keep his pond plants going longer in the season and start them sooner next year. and Im just the other son that never had a tank over 30 gallons but I will be out of school in 9 months and am looking to transition from a tiny aquarium in my apartment to a semi serious frag machine tank when I get a house.

Nice strategy with the LFS! My wife also wants a "cute blue clam."

Just wanted to say hello again.   My tank was taken down several month ago because I was planning to leave Utah.  Plans changed so I will be here at least another year.  I'm anxious to get back into the hobby and get the tank put up again.

Hello everyone, my name is Wenson and I am a new hobbyist in the Salt Lake area. I have been keeping freshwater fish for years but only recently got into the salt water side. I currently have three tanks set up, a 55 gallon cichlid tank, a small 24 gallon coral nanocube, and a new 120 gallon tank that I plan to do a mixed reef in. The largest tank is in the final stages of cycling which is why I am joining the forum as I expect I will need to lean heavily on all of your expertise when it comes to filling and maintaining it. Thanks in advance for all of your help and advice.

More about myself, I am 25 years old and currently happily engaged. So far the fiancee is supportive of my hobby as long as I keep everything well maintained and looking clean. I try to do as much research as I can on anything I add to my system and love DIY projects that let me personalize my tanks. I am always happy to help out as well so if you need help, feel free to ask. I am new to forums so if I step out of line, please let me know.

On a final note, I am setting up the refugium for my 120 gallon so if anyone has some spare trimmings of macro algae that you don't need, please let me know. Happy to travel.
