Hello all. My name is John M. I saw your club by googling reef clubs in NJ and your org. popped up. Seems like a great club! I also belong to JSAS, NJAS, BCAS and NJAGC. The last one also meets at members homes. I've been in the hobby for over 40 years all FW & planted tanks. I currently have a 120g planted tank that's been up & running for over 11yrs. - all fully automated incl. CO2 injection. My second tank is a 75g. African cichlid tank that has been up & running for 1.5 yrs. I'm a retired state correction officer ( 25yrs.), and before that a few various jobs including a medical lab tech, also from 2002 - 2009 I was a part time wedding & event videographer, business name was Jemco Video Worx . Been retired for almost 6 yrs. now from corrections. With the other clubs - NJAS, JSAS, and BCAS I record the monthly meetings guest speakers presentation and other functions with the club. I also have on my YT channel - Plantman of tanks - other videos about the hobby, including spotlight sponsor videos. First one I did was for Aquaridise on Rt. 18, East Brunswick. Will also start doing 'member spotlight' videos where I go to their homes and shoot a 5-10min. video of their tank(s)/fishroom. Once on my YT channel I link it to the other clubs' FB page. Soooo the reason I joined this club is I'm in the process of setting up my first reef tank - Coralife Biocube 32, will replace the stock led's with Nanobox LED retrofit kit; 30lb. Caribsea Arag-Alive pink, 20lb.Caribsea Life Rock, 10lb. Florida Dry Rock, replaced stock filter with In Tank media basket and next to that (fortunately it will fit) an ATS from Santa Monica Fitration - Drop box 1.2; Bought an RO/DI 5 stage from BRS ( 1 week after I bought it they dropped the price from $239.99 to $167.99 -RATS! ), Preordered from Marine Depot the upcoming IceCap 2K gyre pump plus other accessories, etc, etc. I also have a 20g. high tank that I used for a FW shrimp biotope, but now it's empty so that will be the perfect QT for future purchases of SW fish, inverts, & corals. Well I think I've gone on long enough. Looking forward to meeting everyone in the near future! **Sorry my Avatar is of my planted tank. Once I get my BC 32 up & running I'll change it.
