    Hello from Moorpark

    Post by Flynn64 on Thu Jan 23, 2014 1:45 pm

    Hey everybody, my name is Flynn and I am in the process of cycling my first reef tank Smile.

    My set up as of now is a 40 gallon breeder with:
    40lbs of arag alive sand
    20lbs live rock
    Slim Skim Protein skimmer
    BRS carbon reactor
    And a maxi-jet.

    Also, I built the stand.

    I Can't wait to get involved in this online community and to share and also gain information relating to all things marine.

    Hi there Flynn and welcome to the site and community! We love photos here and I would love to see your craftsmanship on your stand!
    I see this will be your first reef tank so I was wondering what kind of corals you plan on getting and what type of lighting you want to go with?

    Thanks for the warm welcome everybody Smile

    Here's a couple pictures of my tank and stand:




    The stand is in its crude stage as of now Wink
    I plan to put some wood paneling on the sides as well as trim on the top and bottom, and create a cabinet with two doors in the front.

    Forgot to mention that I'm using marineland LED lighting which includes blue and white light.

    As for what I'm planning to put in my tank; I think its best I stick to the easiest to keep corals for now haha.

    I'm new to reefing and have been getting the bulk of my knowledge on reefing from LFS and youtube.

    I'd love to attend a meet soon!

    I have a free Kenya tree for you. Good starter coral. Also some free zoas. Once you see if those live ,move onto other corals. you can pass them onto someone else.

    Hello and welcome. I am pretty new to the club too. These guys are a really cool group. They've been extremely helpful and always hook it up! If you need any starter corals, i have a few.

    If you need anything let me know

    If you're getting your info from LFS and youtube, then you're in for a treat if you come to the meeting on Sunday. I think you will be amazed with Bogdon and Crystals setup. If you're interested and want to come, PM me for the address.

    Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to make it this Sunday. I have work until 730 :/

    Unless it will still be ongoing around that time?

    doubt it, it usually goes an hour or so past but I doubt it will last that long, especially on a sunday. Perhaps next time...

    Welcome Flynn! Glad to see you on the boards. There is a wealth of knowledge on this forum and we are all here to help. About 4 years ago I was in your position and didn't venture into the forums for about a year after set up. Now I have a job in the industry, and I owe it to everyone in the community. I am in Simi so if you ever have an issue hit me up. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.
