Interesting. I did some research while in college on sulfolobus (volcanic hot spring virus). It was a long time ago...

A very cool bug-- loves it hot and acidic!

Very cool!  The adaptations involved in survival in such extreme micro environments are pretty fascinating. 

Yes, fascinating to see life thrive at more than 100 degrees Celsius or in conditions with almost no energy available. There are very few sterile places on the face of the planet.

I work as a  biopharmaceutical manufacturing technician, we make the drugs and fill them into vials (liquids not pills) used to treat many different things. At the site i work we focus on a drug for breast cancer, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and other types of cancer.

I am an OSU graduate with a degree in zoology. I worked with animals and owned  my own aquarium maintenance business for years. 

I have since sold my business, and now work as a firefighter/paramedic.

Quite an interesting arc!  If I’m not mistaken, you also successfully kept poison dart frogs until recently. I thought of this due to another forum member posting about his new additions earlier today.

I did! I bred banggai cardinals for awhile. I also bred dart frogs, I had a few different kinds. I currently have no frogs or fish. Dog and wifeys 2 cats. I miss it but it's nice at the same time. I still like to lurk the forum, keeps me up to date haha

Its cool to get to know what people do!! I received a wildlife science degree from OSU and then 3 years in the peace corps primarily working with the EU on getting new national parks off the ground and lots of environmental education and alternative livelihood projects. Upon returning to the US I spent a little over a decade as a wetland biologist/restoration ecologist and had projects all over the west coast.

I got tired of consulting and about 5 years ago decided to grow marijuana full time. So now i own and manage a 7,000 sq ft production facility in NE portland. So now I am part engineer, part electrician, part permit cordinator, part botanist and full time baby sitter.

Hi, I'm Jeff, I've been around PNWMAS for years now mostly as a lurker. I'm ex-military and have been doing programming, mainly web development for the last 16+ years. I work mainly on very large scale, high-profile web properties and government sites. I'm terrible at aquascape despite also have a degree in art and design, so if anyone is open to giving tips on how to better arrange the random rocks in my tank, shoot me a message.
