Statenis Looking for Staten Island Reefers

Hey all i just dived back into the hobby after a few years apart and after recently running a freshwater tank I had to dive back into the reef game. So reason for this post is I want to meet some new people on Staten Island to share the hobby with and hopefully learn from. Id love to see some new reefs and make some friends.
Jim

Hey Mark thanks Im located in the bullshead area. If your ever around or bored always welcome to stop by and check out the setups. That goes for everyone on here. Reef is still cycling but i do have an established freshwater shrimp tank.

First post on here. S.E. Annandale area, I have a Biocube 32 with quite a bit of Coral and 6 fish. Been in the hobby now for about 1.5 years, and eyeing a new 100 - 160 gallon tanks for Christmas.

Welcome to MR. I’m over in NewSpringville and currently have a 180 with a 40 attached and a 20 aio. Let me know if you ever want to bass by and check out my system and maybe grab some ideas for your upgrade to a bigger tank or just chat. I made many mistakes when I upgraded but I think I got the tank running good now lol. Plan your setup out well from they beginning and you should have more enjoyable time with it as time goes by. Good luck with the upgrade if you choose to do it.

Thanks for the advice Mark, I may take you up on that offer. I saw the pictures of your tanks in another thread, and they looks awesome! You have a lot of frags in the smaller one, do you trade? Any communities that you are part of? Also, what stores do you visit most often? I am between Pieces of the Ocean on Hylan, Aquatic Obsessions in Jersey, and (the occasional) stop in at Petco.

What kind of tank is the larger one? I am looking at SCAquariums.
