Thumbs up Welcome new 3reef mods - Steve Wright and ReefSparky!

This summer has been a busy one for 3reef and I am not sure what I would have done without the current moderators.. big thanks to Jason, Annick, Casey and Curtis! I would have stroked out by now without your help.

We recently tossed around the idea of enlisting more help and we came to a consensus rather easily. So without further adieu, please help me welcome new 3reef moderators... steve wright and ReefSparky!

These two have already been a great help around here and there is little doubt they will continue to do so. I am really happy to have them here on 3reef.


Here is a little dirt...er.. bio from each :

Everything I learned about reefkeeping was through 3reef. The rest, as they say so often--is history.

Still working on becoming fluent at the cause and effect of our tanks. Doesn't seem like that's gonna happen tomorrow.

Other interests of mine include reading and playing guitar. As my avatar suggests, Bob Dylan is my single biggest influence, second to the Stones, The Beatles and a few others.

I also love the DIY aspect of the hobby.

I made this stand:

Here's the Wet/Dry filter I converted to a sump with an inline filter:

Here's the guitar I play, a Martin D-15. It's a mahogany top dreadnought, a work of art!

my name is Steve Wright, I am 44 years young, married for 9 years ( second attempt )
we have 2 sons Alan who is 7.5 and Raymond who is 18 months old
I was born in Brighton, Sussex on the south coast of England .
I currently live and work in the Peoples Republic of China and have done so since 1998

I have been involved in the aquarium hobby since I was 16 years old
Going through the natural progression from coldwater to tropical, from tropical community to species (Discuss) and then on to salt water fish and finally to corals and reef set ups
I don’t consider myself to be an expert in any aspect of the hobby, but do consider myself as having a general understanding of our hobby and I enjoy communicating with people about this shared interest / addiction
I currently have 4 tanks set up
A 5ft reef tank
A 4ft FOWLR
A 4ft freshwater with a trio of blue Discuss (hopefully soon to be just 2 Discuss)
A 30 inch tank with 2 land hermit crabs ( Alan’s pets)
I have a total of 6 years experience in reef tanks – 5 of which where in UK from 92 – 97
I was a victim of that devastating weapon that destroys people but leaves buildings in tact
(Yes a divorce)
it took a few years (mainly due to availability of equipement ) but in 2007 I was once again able to consider and then set up a salt water tank in China, intending to do FOWLR
but like many before and many after, the FOWLR tank succumbed to the lure of corals
did I mention yet, that I have a sense of humor? Im sure some of you are already aware of this
some valuable points about me, that you may appreciate knowing
• I appreciate advice
• I like to be informed of my mistakes so I can learn from them
• I enjoy participating and talking to people about our shared interest
• Anyone who has ever sent me a PM , will know, I am approachable and I do enjoy interacting with my fellow 3 reefers.

BIG HANDS FOR BOTH! ALRIGHT! WELCOME ABOARD!
