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
