    Hello!

    Post by Pegasus on Thu Nov 14, 2013 10:03 pm

    What's up fellas, names ivan. I live in Santa Barbara but frequent ventura county fish stores. I've been in the fresh water hobby for a few years but this last year I decided to dabble in reefing. So far it's been good with my 30 gallon (2 or so months old) hopefully with in the year I up grade to something way bigger since it's really addicting. Other than reefing I'm into cars, I also frequent the track for drift events and such. I am also an automotive technician for Volkswagen so cars play a big role in my life. Looking forward to frequenting this forum and learning more.

    Unfortunately I won't make it tonight, I forgot my girlfriend signed me up to help her parents move to the new house all weekend.... But I am not missing FRAG for nothing!

    I attached a shot of my tank, this was a week after it was cycled and one star polyp colony. Since then the pistol shrimp and watchman goby forced me to rearrange the aquascape... Right now I have a purple firefish, bangai cardinal, baby clarkii clown, cleaner shrimp and the for mentioned tiger pistol shrimp and watchman goby. Corals I have a 6 headed Duncan, the green star polyps, green mushroom, and a random zoa colony. I feel like I'm out of livestock room so once petco has dollar a gallon sale I'm getting a 50 gallon for sure.
