    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.

    So..... I took the month of November to really evaluate this tank and my desire to keep it. I went back and forth a lot last month. Doing minimal work and the necessary water changes on the tank to keep it going. I even sold off a few pieces of coral in preparation to shut it down. The desire to keep it going after vacation wasn't there like in the past, but something was still there to keep it going for November. At some point I decided to keep this little box of water and take it slow and get it back to what it once was. Another positive over that time was I saw an increase in growth in all of my corals. Decided to keep it going and enjoying the decision. Nothing like a few new additions to the tank to make you start loving it all over again, right? Thanks @puffdragon and @ddeurloo for the new additions! In the past week I have added: ORA Birdsnest Red Digitata Splatter Hammer Coral Neon Green Toadstool Neon Green GSP Tube Anemone I'd say that's a good end to 2019. We will see how they fair in 2020.

    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.

    At this time, current INDMAS Members may reserve a table at the March 14, 2020 frag swap by sending an email to [email protected] and posting in this topic. The post will timestamp the request and the email will be about payment. Payment will confirm the table. Ben will confirm table availability and work out payment from from there. This year, the hobby tables will line the back wall like last year and will be numbered H1 to H18. There are 9, 8-foot tables total so each spot is 4 foot (still good at math) The spots will be $20 each for members and $50 for non-members (preference given to those that bought a calendar JUST KIDDING that will be next year). This post is just for Club members at this time and only for a 4 foot spot. When you reply to this topic let us know if you are interested in 2 spots and we will put you on the list depending on response We will confirm table reservation as soon as possible.

    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 donโ€™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 youโ€™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.. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ 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.

    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.

    Very true sir...you are the one who has to be happy looking at your tank and caring for it. Glad you got it back into a state you are happy with!!

    Iโ€™m really loving the look of my tank right now. Itโ€™s not massive and doesnโ€™t pack in too many designer corals but thatโ€™s not what Iโ€™m going for. Iโ€™m keeping something easy to keep for myself and the types of corals that interest me. I think that is key to success in this hobby. There are quite a few members here who Iโ€™ve purchased corals from as well. Very few are from local shops or swaps, so thank you. this tank will be 3 years old next month.

    Hey Club, Eastgate Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram is running an event starting today that if anyone from the club goes to buy, or lease a vehicle (new or used) and mentions Mikayla and the clubs name, they will give the club $250. This will be a great way to help the club out to give extra funds to improve the frag swap, provide some new monthly meeting prizes, or even help to fund the July field trip. You can get a new vehicle and help the club. Keep this in mind for the next time you are looking for vehicles.

    Well with everything out it was time to modify the sump with some baffles and an area to hold filter socks. I was working on this when all s_ _ _ broke loose. While cutting a piece of Plexiglas on the table saw it bound and kicked back, the finger lost that battle. End story is they saved the finger by inserting a 3" pin to hold finger together and fixed all the structural damage. I returned home to contemplate what to do, with less than 3 weeks until the new tank arrives I still had a lot to do. When it rains it pours
