That's basically where I stand. Also keep sulc tortoises and a nice flying squirrel named Bucky.

I stay in Austin TX and enjoy motorcycles, check out the main sponsor (the guy is a jerk), bicycles of every flavor (I have a list that compares to my tanks), kayaking, and of course camping.

Been a pipe fitter for 12 years now. Going on 31 YO. been in ATX for 10 years.

Just an idea of me.

Mike, I'm looking forward to the pics of your plecs.:thumbsup:

With almost 5 marine tanks, that is very interesting especially when it rubs off on marine keepers like Usmc, Tmfreak and Michael who are very much interested in new marine tank pics.:crazy:
