Hello all! I'm not actually in Ohio, but have always lived pretty close by and have spent plenty of time across the state line. Also noticed a lot of presence in the Toledo and Cincy areas, which are both highly accessible for me. To be completely honest, found this place while looking for people selling rock and equipment fairly locally.
650g FOwLR - mostly predator (with sharks!). Zetlight lighting, DIY skimmer, homebuilt sump w/refugium (not my work though), working on new aquascape with a lot more rock.
75g "grow up" tank for those guys that need to grow out of the shark food stage. Also has some mushroom corals. Octo HOB skimmer, Canister filter, LED and T5 lighting, soon to have HOB fuge growing feeding macro
Loads of QT space, including a 35g that's tabbed as the "kids tank" for the nieces once my CUC moves out, plus 5 more tanks of varying size. Walking into our basement kinda feels like walking into a small fish store at this point.
I'll plan on uploading some pics when I'm on a device that has them available (aka, not this computer)
Background: I'm originally from SE Indiana and keep working my way north. Currently reside just outside Ann Arbor (Not a U of M fan, so no need to worry about that ). Engineer by trade and also into cars, photography, and 3d printing. Very into DIY as well, even made my own skimmer that mostly works (due to be replaced this weekend when my nice new-to-me skimmer arrives)
Not a whole lot tbh. bought a house almost 3 years ago now, came with the monster tank already stocked. Prior to that, my aquarium experience was a 2.5g hex tank with a pair of goldfish won at a carnival when I was like 6. Talk about being thrown in the deep end. I've been steadily trying to improve the situation and remedy some less than great decisions made for the tank (like a 4' long DIY undergravel filter in the sump). Fortunately, I'm an engineer and an obsessive researcher so the tank seems to be coming along relatively quickly (note: nothing actually happens quickly with this much water).
I'm also on R2R (often) and Michigan Reefers (pretty rarely). Places like this have worked wonders for me in learning how to properly setup and care for the amount of aquarium that was kinda dropped in my lap.
