PostSubject: Hello from Midlo!   Tue May 15, 2012 2:05 pm

Just figure I'd do the neighborly thing and do a quick intro of myself...

My name is Dennis. I am originally from Delaware and was transplanted here to Richmond by way of post-military marriage. I am studying Biology @ VCU with a focus on Ichthyology. I was a former aquarists who had to give up the hobby while I was in the military, but now since I have a 3yr old daughter and a wife who all have a love for fish. I figure it is time to get back in to the saddle so to speak, and start up another aquarium.

I hope to get in here and refresh my memory on a few things, learn a thing or two, and maybe even meet a few new people in here.

See y'all around!
-Dennis S.

Welcome Dennis, sure glad you found us. CVAS members are really a great bunch who love to help and share. I'm looking forward to hearing about your tank(s) as you set them up and stock. Don't forget to take pics during process. We are all pic and vid junkies. There are some really great deals within the club on fish and sometimes equipment. Don't forget to check on Craigslist also for some great buys on tanks, stands, and etc. Looking forward to meeting you at our next meeting. Stay in contact and the board will be announcing when it will be. We have a wide variety of members who have fish bowls to over 100 tanks.

Our members raise everything from plants and snails to African Cichlids, South American cichlids to Saltwater Ron

Thanks Ron! I am getting ready to take my 3yr old out to look for her 1st tank tonight, but have been looking for some deals throughout Ebay and Craigslist on locally owned ready to sell aquariums. Since I am college student still funds are tight. So I am looking for something that will be durable enough to use as a starter, but won't hit me too hard in the money department. As for set-up and stocking! I'm big on pics and vids myself...So I will be sure to post as I make my progress!

Welcome to CVAS, ToolMedic, and welcome to Richmond. cheers VCU is a fine university devoted to educating a wide range of students. One of my kids recently graduated from there and is looking into graduate school now.
Good luck with your studies!

As Ron says feel free to post what you are looking for in the "Marketplace" forum and maybe you will get a great deal or a lead to one. There is no minimum number of posts required to use the Marketplace, so post away!
Very Happy
