It's just how my brain works...
  8. I'll get the ball rolling Name: Paul Gender: Male Age or Age Range: 38 Twitter/Instagram: Twitter: @tehSAC Instagram: @tehSAC_reef Where are you from? Danville Type of Tank(s): 10 Gallon Innovative Marine NUVO All In One Cube Photo(s) of you: Full Tank Shot(s): Favorite tank pic(s): How long have you been in the hobby? Saltwater: Just over 3 Years Freshwater: 15 Years What do you like most about the hobby? Anytime I'm around my tank I can relax and feel like I'm in a tropical paradise. Especially on those cold winter days. Other pets: 2 Dogs, 6 cats (not all indoors) Other hobbies: I love to travel from short road trips to international travel. In October my oldest daughter and I traveled to Tokyo Japan and loved every second of it. Itching to get back to explore more. I also love to build plastic model kits and have been getting into Gundam/Star Wars Bandai kits as of late. Other interests are BBQ'ing/Smoking, Coaching Softball, racing, flying drones, and trying new foods/restaurants. Work: I work in the Civil Engineering field, more specifically surveying. I've been working in this field since 2002, but started off in Road and Bridge design. I have dabbled in pretty much every aspect of civil engineering since then, but surveying is something I have found that I enjoy the most. The firm I work for is one of a handful in the state that has the ability to use drones to acquire data for surveying purposes, and I am apart of that team. Flying a drone was never something I thought I could/would do, but it has been very rewarding, and knowing I am one of a few in our state that not only flys but processes the data is a cool feeling. The hardest part of it all was acquiring my license from the FAA. Favorite food: This varies because there are so many amazing foods out there, but if I had to boil it down, Street Tacos or Pineapple. I'm always seeking out new restaurants to try in the city or surrounding states. Favorite music: I have an eclectic taste that varies from week to week. I don’t care for classical or country music. Some of my favorite bands include: Foo Fighters, Motion City Soundtrack, The Story So Far, Knuckle Puck, and Blink 182. Favorite movies/shows: I don't watch a lot of TV, but That 70's Show was always a favorite of mine. I'm more interested in travel vlogs on youtube, documentaries, or anything related to Star Wars. Which in turn is my favorite movie. Something else you’d like to share about yourself: I'm a very introverted person, unless we are discussing something that really interests me, or if I am traveling. I've been described as standoffish or odd in the past, but I just don't do well in groups more than 3-4 people. Unless I am at a race track, coaching, or traveling.. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ Once I get to know people I come out of my shell a bit more, so if we have met and I have been quiet this is probably why. I apologize for any feeling of rudeness from me, it was not intentional.
  9. I've been here awhile, and I know a few of you from meetings. However I don't get around to meetings as much as I would like too, or my introverted self doesn't reach out to try and get to know you all as much as I would like. So in spirit of learning more about you, and to try and get a little participation going on these forums I'm starting this thread. I hope you all participate in some way or another to not only help me learn more about you, but help others as well. I always feel so lost at the swap or meetings, so maybe this will make us all feel a bit more comfortable. Maybe this will mold into a new chat thread for people that might want to chat about their tanks, the reefing community, and life in general.

  10. Thanks again for the help and suggestions
  11. Here is a teaser photo of my set up! Excited to host the INDMAS Feb Meeting! Looking forward to hear everybody’s insight how to progress!
  12. I don't see any down side, once less thing to have in my wallet and you don't have to manually write out each card.
  13. When do we need to pay for the spot?
  14. Last week
  15. I have to give the credit to Mikayla for this design. The great thing about the digital membership card is that we can change up the background picture each year.
  16. The February Meeting will be on February 29, 2020 since we can only have it on this particular day every four years why not? Jochen (Jeto 2004) will be our host and the address is 7030 N Central Indianapolis IN. First and new Saltwater Tank wet since August 2019. Initially this tank was supposed to be a planted 260 gallon Discus fresh water tank. However, after much consideration it was actually turned into a saltwater tank. The goal for this tank is to have a healthy mixed reef with predominately LPS and SPS coral and a good fish crew with as much remote control and automation as possible. While wet since August of last year the fish and coral population are still limited but expanding. The build is still in progress, by finishing up cabinetry and much need wire management.... Come see this tank, exchange ideas and great company
  17. When I did the 120 I put all the unattached coral and fish into a couple bins and the rock into others, just so I wouldn't risk crushing anything. I wanted to save my sandbed too, but by the time I got the rock out and water drained down ALL the sludge from a couple years had stirred out of the sandbed and I ended up just replacing it all anyway. And YES on the rewiring. That was the best part, getting to re-think how everything went together.
  18. Thank you! So would I be better off putting the rock and coral in one container with a heater, Vortec MP10, and air stone and in another container put the fish and a heater, MP10, and air stone? Or just put them all in a 50 gallon trash can on wheels with the heater, 2 MP10's and an air-stone or two? I'm also guessing I want to keep enough water in the tank to cover the sand, correct? I'm also using this move as an opportunity to clean up my electrical wiring and give my sump a good cleaning. Any other suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
  19. I can actually help with that one. Before upgrading to the 180 I replaced carpet under my 120 a few years ago. That I could do in a half-day...pulled rock, coral and fish to several large heavy duty rubbermaid bins, drained tank water down to cover everything, lids on with air stones. Drained the tank the rest of the way down and the carpet crew was able to shift it no problem with the rest of the furniture. Seems like going from the 120 to the 180 is an order of magnitude though. Empty the tank/stand weighs probably 400 lb, so too much for even a couple guys to easily shift. Plus figuring the whole-main-floor flooring change will be a few day job instead of a few hours.
  20. Hello everyone! So at the January meeting, I had brought up the discussion of moving to a digital membership card for the club. With almost everyone having email, cellphone, computer, and printer, it will make things easier for club members to have the card with them, or if they print it and lose it to get a replacement. I wanted to get some feedback from club members on the current design and idea of this. Attached is a prototype version.
