How long have you been in the hobby? Since 2011 when a friend moved out of state and left me a 5g, 3-rock, 1fish, I pump, no filter unit, and an rodi unit and said ... good luck, do your water changes, your kids will love it
What do you like most about the hobby? The idea that Indiana can be a part of the #thirdcoast and keep oceans near us too... I have one of those three rocks still.
Other pets: no, I’m a divorced dad with four kids who drew the line at no further pets.
Other hobbies: disc golf, super Mario maker, chartguys/technical analysis,
Work: TORAY accounting supervisor, moonlighting as INDMAS treasurer
Favorite food: yes please... anything set out with care for others
Favorite music: Umphrey’s McGee. You all above said “not country”... I like lots of not-pop country. I enjoy blue grass, western, folk etc. .haha
Favorite movies/shows: peaky blinders, sons of anarchy, true detective, the wire, spongebob, macgyver, simpsons, and not many marvel/superhero movies.
Something else you’d like to share about yourself: my tank took a back burner in 2018-2019, so I’m looking forward to the 2020 swap to kickstart my enthusiasm while I ride everyone else’s excitement.
