New to Oregon

Recommended Posts

Hello! My wife and I just moved to Oregon from Kansas and are finally settling in. We are very involved in the marine hobby and love all it has to offer. It's great to see so many individuals involved in the hobby no matter where you go.(clap) We were active in our local reef keeping community in Kansas and would love to continue that. I know we are excited about meeting new people and checking out what Oregon has to offer. Here is a picture of our previous setup:

and here is a link to more pics; http://www.salt-city.org/portal.php?page=102008totm

 

We are going a different route this time and setting up a seahorse tank. I will be posting a build thread in the near future. While I am thinking about it, does anybody around the Eugene area have a used 25g or 20high? I will also post in the WTB section. Thanks, and we look forward to meeting everyone!

 

Nick

Welcome! I am in Eugene and new to the hobby. Our excitement to fill the tank has recently taken us up I-5 to purchase items, livestock and just to check out the LFS in other towns!! If you find something you need let me know, I may be able to pick it up for you. The people on this forum are GREAT! Always helpfull and full of knowledge.

Welcome. If you want to meet a bunch of people from here in person a lot of us will be at this months meeting on the 18th. This one will have a sizeable attendance since it will be at Barelycuda's place. (He has a Clownhouse where he breads clownfish) It will be a bit of a drive from Eugene but probably well worth the trip. Especially if you can do a bit of frag swapping at the same time.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

Thanks for the offer but a 29g is a little long for my stand.

Sweet, I will keep an eye out.

That's awfully nice of you. I will keep that in mind. We don't need any livestock now, but we might need some other things.

 

Yep!! Got a 20high. When do you want it? It is only the tank.

 

Thanks ClayTheSavageFraser! I will send you a pm.

Welcome to the group.

 

The meeting will be in Vancouver Washington this month. A little bit away from you, but it would be worth it to go visit the clownfish hatchery.

And that's when you know you are(laugh)

I'm also setting up a seahorse tank here in Eugene! Let me know if you need anything! This is my second seahorse tank.

 

Awesome! I might pm you about some ideas I have and get your input. Two heads are always better than one.(drinking)

The Eugene group is really a good group. You will like them. I know I did. Met with different people in the group and bought/sold/traded all the time. We had a couple great events happen in Eugene, and the group is great. I guess the northern group is good too...(whistle)
