    I'm an emt. If you stop breathing, feel free to call me. Actually, 911 is probably a better choice. I know a little about a lot though. I'm always happy to help out.

    Great thread Roy! It's nice to see what people spend the majority of their life doing. I am a pediatrician by trade so if you have any questions about kids I can probably help you. As far as usefulness in this hobby, I hate plumbing, electrical work, handy work in general lol so that's why I am a big part of this forum and I greatly appreciate those of you who are good at it. I know I have sought out help many times and always appreciate it. I believe in sticking with what you know. I am great at organizing large scale and smaller scale events and finding the right people for all the roles that are needed. And if you are in search of sarcasm I am there! (again not sure what this guy is doing but I like him ) I do have a knack for knowing what a high end coral looks like and identifying many zoas. I also was the one who actually discovered the Oregon Tort and the MattV Orange Envy ( disclaimer... I'm totally lying about the Oregon Tort and the MattV Orange envy! )

    Two great forum guys !! Mattv is the owner of Stumptown with an eye for sps who has brought the world some nice pieces like the MattV Orange Envy! Matt is also a good friend who will drop everything and be there for you night or day and risked his life putting motion sensor lights on my house !! Daniel is the owner of Reefi lights which are great lights and he has quite the knowledge on building things that rival anything Macgyver could do!! Both are great additions to this forum and they are a little older heading to the New Year!! Happy Birthday!!!

    I was a soldier. Caught a medical retirement after Iraq. Now I'm in school for Information Systems. Not working yet but heading towards networking myself. Done with ICND1, working on ICND2. Done A/N/S+ and lots of technical education, training and experience. @stylaster, you're a man after my own heart. What certs/experience do you have and what specifically do you do? I know we've got at least one more software guy but always nice to see CS/IS/IT people here.

    “Hello, Jack? I have stopped breathing. What should I do?” ”Have you tried breathing?” “Hello, Sean? I have something here I need neuroscienced, and you’re the only neurosciencer I know.” ”That... doesn’t make any sense. I can’t understand you.” ”Psh, and you call yourself a neuroscientist! Can’t even understand that I need something neuroscienced! I’m calling Jack - he worked wonders when I had that breathing problem!”

    I’m an Amazon image manager/photo editor with previous experience as a content writer (product descriptions). Amazon is not my employer; they are the client of the small sales rep company I work for. We’re not 3rd party sellers. If you have a stellar product line you want Amazon to buy (storing it in their warehouse, selling it and shipping it to the end customer), that’s where we come in. Before Amazon, I made my living selling new clothing and toys on eBay most of the year and at Georgia flea markets during the summer months when people get off their computers and out of their houses. There are some parallels between eBay and Amazon, but I enjoy having paid vacation time now and no longer having to haul carloads of merchandise around to flea markets in 120 degree Atlanta heat. (It doesn’t actually get to 120 there, but it feels like it with the humidity. 105 here feels the same as 85 there.) In terms of what I can help you with... I can assure you that your collection of prized possessions is not worth what you think it is on eBay. I can also photoshop that honker of a nose you’ve got down to a reasonable size bump. Kidding aside, if you really do have a company with cool products you’re interested in selling to Amazon, show me sometime. I can put you in touch with my boss, who can assess whether you’re better off trying to do that on your own or whether you should hire us. She is honest about that stuff, because if we can’t improve your sales, it’s going to be a waste of time for everyone. In many cases, we can help.

    I am a graduate student in physical chemistry. Got a question about chemistry? I might be able to help. Biology is a different story.

    Well... I'm a PhD neuroscientist so not much practical use to anyone. I do, however, know just enough about a lot of other things to be dangerous This reminds me of another neat thread we had going a while back that was about our non-reef related interests/skills (not necessarily work related). Might be nice to resurrect that one as well. (off to hunt it down)

    Ok, tank is finally done cycling. Filter was a big no-no for these guys so mine sits brackish. It does have a 12/12 light cycle though. The coolest thing about this tank is that it has the false back where the pump and filter chambers are. Though it's all turned off, that provided a completely black area for them. Apparently this is very close to how their natural environment is so often in the mornings you will see none. By the evening the whole colony is out and picking around. Quite striking. You can't see it very well but all those white specks on the surface? Those are pretty much all medusa. They swim around frequently. Breeding commenced within the first month and is picking up speed. 25 individuals were my starter broodstock. I estimate I should be able to house a couple hundred in here. Oh! The Chaeto is growing too!

    Happy birthday to both of you! Definitely a pair of reefers with excellent reputations. I've had a person all the way from Florida from reefcentral where I also hang out ask if I knew Daniel of Reefi. He was so impressed with the lights and stoked I was even in the same club! Have a good one you two!

    Here's a better picture with the lights on. I hope they make it. My tank isn't heavily stocked and there are some good hiding place. I just did a big mixed feeding including some reef chili. I'm hoping there is something they can survive on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So, as I was drilling a 55g yesterday for the water mixing station, I punched through and dropped my fancy new Bosch hole saw assembly into 3 feet of freezing water. Got to play this same game and didn't want to dump the water. I used my reef grabber like Holly & Dodge suggested.

    Given that Holly has a year round b-day, she just had to learn to share with others 👍

    At first I thought that too, but the orange body with black spots description threw me off. But then again there are so many nudibranchs out there.

    In the last few years when I was visiting the Oregon coast I wasn't ever able to find any. But when I went to sunset bay this year I found dozens. It was really nice to see.

    Looks to be some sort of nudibranch, possibly a Sacoglossan, but these little guys are notoriously difficult to ID. I know that generally speaking these guys are specialty feeders and take on their coloration as either warning signs or camouflage similar to the things they consume. There are many of these animals out there that are waiting to be studied and properly classified so I eer on the side of cation with these kind of organisms, especially if they are not green and amongst algae. Do they hang out on or around any particular area or thing in the tank? They may just fade away once there is an imbalance in the system or food source...Or you get a nice and hungry wrasse.

    Hmm. The head shape does seem different than a planaria - maybe a juvie nudibranch or aplysia of some sort? I usually wait for @badxgillen to weigh in on any ID... he is the pro.

    Thanks Kim! Now that I go back and look at the pics from May, things have really filled in a lot. Still trying to get some of the more challenging specimens dialed in but at least some of it is happy Hopefully I didn't jinx myself there...
