Hello Everybody! I just went to the last meeting, but just in case I didn't get to meet you I just wanted to properly introduce myself! So I am currently a student at OSU, and I found out that both my tutor Miles Taylor, and I are both into the aquarium hobby. So he told me about PNWMAS, and that there was a meeting coming up, so I was more than happy to come. It was great to meet a lot of you. So I do have a few tanks here in my dorm and back home. Right now I have a 14 gallon nano cube, a 5 gallon goldfish tank, and a 3 gallon mangrove tank. But back home in California I have a 120 gallon fish only saltwater system, a 28 gallon nano cube, a 55 gallon freshwater, and a pond. If you want to see the stuff I've kept over the years I have a youtube channel and instagram with the same user name, "aquariumaster" . I'll also attach some videos and pictures here. But ya, I'm just really happy to be a part of this and I look forward to going to the upcoming meetings! Here is my 120 gallon: and heres my old bamboo shark ( she now actually lives at SeaWorld San Diego!):
Hello all, I am new to the PNWMAS community but not so new to aquarium keeping. Most of my experience has been with freshwater setups although I have had various degrees of reef aquaria in the past. I am presently on the west side in Hillsboro and have been maintaining a large reef tank and jelly kreisel at LeChon (on the waterfront) the past few months. I am a native Oregonian and came out of the AQS program in Newport back in 2012. This past December I finished up my undergraduate in Aquaculture. This year I have been looking at job opportunities in public aquaria/ornamental aquaculture, but think I will call the Portland metro home for now. With that, I am looking to expand my circle of aquatic enthusiast friends in the area, and thought PNWMAS would be be the best place to start. Many thanks, and I look forward to getting to know many of you!
Hello - My husband, Damon and I (Holly) just registered today to join PNWMAS and wanted to introduce ourselves. We live in Salem and are Duck fans (sorry to those Cougs, Huskies and Beavs out there) as I went to U of O (been quite awhile!). We enjoy working in our yard/gardens and remodeling and doing projects around our house. Damon enjoys golfing and I love to cook. Our most recent remodel included a reef aquarium setup and we are really excited about having this and a new hobby. The wonderful creatures that make their home in this tank will join 3 cats, and 2 very large dogs none of which think the tank is interesting at all. Obviously we are very new to the hobby. Our tank has been running now for just over two months and is 280 gallons. We didn't jump in lightly but the more we have learned the more we realize how much we don't know, the mistakes we have already made, and often find ourselves wondering what to do. There is so much information about so many topics it really can be overwhelming. Often you find conflicting information and it is hard to know what to do. We hope to meet many of you either online or in person to get your pearls of wisdom and help with many of the problems we are already encountering. What a beautiful thing all of the creatures that inhabit a reef tank are. Makes you appreciate just how complex and wonderful the ocean is. Holly & Damon
