    Hello Buckeyes!

    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. Tanks: 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) Experience: 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.

    Hi Dustin! Nice store you have started there. The Buckeye reef account setup went smoothly for me. Couple quick comments though: 1. The corals all look sideways. seems like they should be rotated clockwise 90 degrees. Minor thing really. 2. The food only goes into the cart in 32 oz increments (8x 4oz and 4x 8oz). Also not clear on the format of the food (pellets, flakes, powder, etc.), though I see from a post on here that it's a frozen food (kinda important thing to know with online orders). I would be very interested in giving it a try, but not sure I'd want to commit to 2lbs right off the bat. Higher resolution pics or a text ingredient list would be great too. I'm a little far for frequent shopping, but pass through Cincy pretty often visiting family so I'll definitely be checking back in. One thing that would be helpful for people like me that are occasionally allergic to shipping when local pickup will do is some sort of typical pickup hours. I see you have hours listed on Facebook, but I would usually go to a store's website for that kind of information.

    Just made a purchase using the link so hopefully it worked. No way to tell as the link took me right to MD where I was already logged in.

    HI Dustin! I couldn't see an option to mark my account that way. I'm still unable to add the frag plugs to my order, do you know when they will be back? I'll decide if I want to wait or go ahead with my pod order at that point.

    Picked these up from @DonDon1 a couple weeks ago. Playboy bunnies and nebula people eaters. Not sure if I’m going to add any more zoas to the garden or just let it grow for the next 6 months or so.
