Why I chose my screen name - Years ago a friend and roommate gave me this name and it has since stuck. Probably has something to do with my 6'5" big guy stature.

Both connected by a Trigger Systems 34 Gallon Sump, Reef Octopus Elite 200 skimmer, GHL Profilux P4 controller, GHL Doser, Geo CaRx, Carbon Doser, Kamoer Fx-stp Doser for CaRx, 48" 8 bulb ATI Sunpower and 48" Reef Brite XHO

Area of Strength in the hobby - Helping with the day to day operations of this club and website. Always try to remain teachable. Hopefully, growing epic SPS in the future.

Years in the hobby - Joined this club way back in 2004 under a different screen name as I was just starting off in saltwater. Had freshwater tanks as a kid years prior.

Favorite Hobby Outside of Reef keeping - Probably playing video games, I'm a sucker for grinding GTA V and Battlefield 2042 currently.

Area of Strength in the hobby - Not sure if I have a real strength but I am very detailed and a little ocd to get to the bottom of issues. I do a lot of research and will not give recommendations if I have never done it, encountered it myself or owned the specific piece of equipment.

Years in the hobby - 10 years- I Joined this club in 2013. I never had an aquarium before. I jumped in feet fist with a solid 2 weeks or research (not google!) my first build was a 55g saltwater system. I then did a build of a 40G breeder before doing a tank transfer of them both to my current 120G system in 2017 I did have my share of ups and down as all reefers do, but in my short 10 years I have learned what I feel like a lifetime of information and still learn everyday.

Favorite Hobby Outside of Reefkeeping -I enjoy other hobbies such as Mtn. biking, hiking, and building things I wish were already made.

Current Tank Photo - 12/22/22 :) :p getting a little crowded in there.

Why I chose my screen name - (Scavdog) This name stretches wayyy back to the early days of Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Over the years it just stuck.

Area of Strength in the hobby -
I've been doing this for years. I have strength in maintaining the attitude that I will always have something to learn.

Years in the hobby - 20. I started in freshwater in the late 90's after college. I jumped into reefkeeping in 2001. Around the same time I connected with @MoeK (George Washington of the BRS) on Reefs.org . By 2001 we were meeting up in parking lots and restaurants to trade frags with an ever-growing group of people. By early 2002 I had the honor of co-founding the Boston Reefers Society with a handful of the coolest hobbyists (in my humble opinion) in the area. I served as VP of PR from 2002-2004 and President from 2005-2007. I also served on MASNA board for 3 consecutive years.

Favorite Hobby Outside of Reefkeeping - Family time, Cooking, Mountain Biking, Skiing/Riding, Kayaking and anything outdoors.

Why I chose my screen name - no I am not an Abercrombie and Fitch fashionista I was actually supposed to join the Air Force after college but that never ended up happening so I was an Air Force bound guy. I just kept it as it stuck and I didn't want to change a bunch of screen names :cool:

Link to Build Thread - Loading...


Area of Strength in the hobby - Continuous learning, builds and DIYs, automations, frying Apex components, ignoring Apex alerts, plumbing, collecting reef supplies, "setting up another tank".

Years in the hobby - I got my first fresh water tank when I was like 6, and graduated to reef tanks in 2014. I've setup up multiple tanks since then including a 210g that was plumbed through the house with a basement sump, lots of lessons learned and still counting.

Favorite Hobby Outside of Reef keeping - I have too many to pick from, so I'll mention the top 3; I love mountain biking and try to get on a bike daily. I live close to Middlesex Fells so I ride often. The next 2 hobbies go hand in hand, I love traveling and Scuba diving. Most of my trips are planned solely around diving, and some time gets topside.
