Welcome everybody, and thanks again for checking out my site! My name is Matthew, and I live in Seattle, WA with my wife and two children. I am passionate about the reefing hobby and am happy to be sharing that love with all of you.
I had my first freshwater tank in the early 1990’s. I remember putting in a gravel filter, and thinking I was pretty high tech. It was a twenty gallon, and I had a weak fluorescent bulb which was pretty much only good for growing algae!
I took a Marine Biology class in high school, where I got SCUBA certified in the murky, frigid waters of Puget Sound. Since then I have dived several times at the Great Barrier Reef, and snorkeled all over the Hawaiian islands.
I have wanted a reef tank for almost two decades and it finally became a reality in 2015.
For those of us who love this hobby, it can be pretty all-encompassing. How many of you spend hours and hours each week, cleaning, upgrading, researching, and dreaming?
This website is dedicated to all of my fellow reefers. My hope is that brand new hobbyists and seasoned professionals will find value here.
