PostSubject: Howdy ^_^   Mon Aug 29, 2011 11:39 am

Howdy all!

I've been looking for a local aquarist forum chapter that's not too out of my league of which I can partake in for a little while now.
My name's David, and I enjoy pico and nano reef keeping. My wife has freshwater some freshwater gouramis, tetras and comets, but I rude on the other side of the force.

Ive been keeping a 5g rimless reef that I've equipped a "micro-sump-fuge" to (I like coining my own words) which has been up since January. I have also acquired a 24g AquaPod back in the spring for which I had moved the livestock from the pico to. I've made a few custom mods to the AquaPod in order to suit it's needs.

In the 5er, I have a gramma, and an emerald crab as residents along with some candy cane and red war coral frags. In the Pod I have a pair of perculas, red firefish, bullsey pistol, skunk, peppermint and purple coral banded shrimp along with some hermits.

I'd like to one day own a nice sizable reef tank where I can keep everything in so I only need to Take care of one tank, but the pico reefs are quite fun for me to keep. I look forward to meeting you who partake in this forum here at school in the process!

Welcome, David! Welcome!

Yes, I'm glad you found us! I think nano/pico tanks are super cool. I used to have a Biocube set up, and I've always wanted a pico tank. Definitely post showcase threads of your aquariums. We have another member on the forum (Nelson aka Gimplar) who modded a Biocube. You might want to check it out. Wink

On a side note, do you play an instrument, sing, or just compose??

Ah thanks for such a warm welcome :-)

I do pretty much anything musical; I sing, I play all sorts of instruments, and I also enjoy writing it as well.

My primary is keyboard / piano studies. I play lots of guitar, drums, bass, little bit of flute, and I enjoy singing. Depending on my mood I have been known to do quite a bit of composing...

Very cool! I've been playing double bass for almost nine years now. It's more a hobby than a passion, though.

Beautiful avatar by the way! cheers

No, no jazz. Just classical. I play in the Honors Orchestra at USF. It's very laid back. No auditions or anything like that. We just have fun, and that's all I want. Smile

Nice! how long have you been in the ensemble?

Me being a pianist, I always stuck out when I was younger, because everyone else musical I knew either played a horn, or a woodwind, or a stringed instrument very well and were all in orchestras. I've always wanted to play in an orchestra, but in order to I'd have to be invited as a concert guest soloist..

I've been playing in the ensemble since my freshmen year, so this will be my third year.

You were all alone. cry jk. But seriously, that is a shame that you couldn't be in any ensembles. Sad My orchestra in high school was basically my second family. I wish the Honors Orchestra was more tight-knit like my orchestra was in high school... Neutral
