    Welcome, welcome!

    Hey now... E Sports, they have competitions for cash prizes just like billiards, Bowling, Golf or poker. If they consider those sports then...

    Solution sell the 30G and buy a 20G then sneak it in a basket of clothes and set that badboy up.

    How many years have you been in the hobby? Had fish tanks many years now. My first planted tank was a little 5 gallon in 2009 (picture below) in my apartment before life happened (wife, house, house remodel, and kids) now I'm finally starting back up again. Haven't had an aquarium for few years, all started again with winning some gold fishes at the local fair over the summer.


    What do you like most about the hobby? I like the plants, relaxing and therapeutic, reminds me of nature - camping/fishing. Really interested in the shrimps now after setting up my first shrimp tank. Currently setting up four shrimp tanks in my garage:

    How did you find scape? The owner of The Reef told me about local fish club years ago about getting a 10% discount card but I couldn't remember the name. Was surfing the net on TPT (only website I remembered back in 2009 about planted tanks) this summer and came across this site.
    What other hobbies or interests do you have? I "used" to camp, fish, go target practice. Now I watch my kids grow:-)
    Do you play any sports? Hand Eye coordination wasn't in my gene pool. Chasing my kids.
    What is your favorite food? BBQ or anything on the grill:-)
    What type of music do you enjoy most? Air1 radio station now, kid friendly music. Gone are the days of Aerosmith, Metallica, Guns&Roses, KidRock, Bob Marley, Too Short, Tupac, Snoop, Dre, EMINEM, 50cents
    Do you have kids? 5 yrs old son and 3 yrs old daughter
    What other pets do you have? none
    Have you lived in any other state/country? Was born in Vietnam, my family escaped Vietnam during fall of Saigon back in 75 on my dad's fishing boat, I was 3 months old. Thank GOD for the US Navy! My family was sponsored to the US by a loving couple from Kentucky (husband was a Lebanon refugee), we call them Mom Deep and Pop Deep. I actually was able to visit Mom Deep last January with my wife and kids on her 98th birthday. Been almost 30 years since I came back to Kentucky to visit Mom Deep. Grew up as a kid in Louisiana been living in Orange County for many years now.

    How many years have you been in the hobby? I got my first 10G aquarium when I was around 9 but only really decorated it and "assisted" my parents in cleaning the tank. None of us understood the nuances of the nitrogen cycle and looking back I realize how durable that little goldfish was to deal with how we literally scrubbed that tank down every month and plopped him back into a completely uncycled environment. I came back into the hobby in my mid-late 20's first with a 3G betta tank that was a spur of the moment purchase during an Amazon BF sale. Now I've got multiple tanks set-up.

    What do you like most about the hobby? I enjoy the husbandry over stock and the aesthetic aspect of scaping.

    How did you find scape? CK Fishworld has been my LFS since I got back into the hobby and I attended a meeting after seeing Peter advertise it.

    What other hobbies or interests do you have? My main hobby is video games, specifically Dota 2.

    Do you play any sports? No but I enjoy watching NBA. I will watch the late playoffs of the NFL, MLB and NHL.

    What is your favorite food? I am willing to try almost anything once and I like lots of things in different cuisines. The cop-out answer would be Asian since it would include multiple Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and Korean foods.

    What type of music do you enjoy most? KROQ styled punk/rock, older rap, and country.

    What other pets do you have? Two cats, both rescued as small stray kittens.

    Have you lived in any other state/country? I went to undergrad in MA and law school in GA. Regularly spent entire summers in Indonesia before my grandparents (Chinese immigrants who fled during the Communist revolution) passed.

    @KeyeNewen Wow... pretty intense background. I really miss camping, hiking and fishing, but alas... that was a time before the wife and kids. It's too difficult to get everyone coordinated and the time off to go drive to a quality camping spot. I feel you man, the majority of my time away from work is spent trying to recuperate or chasing kids and keeping them occupied with tasks.

The idea is to better understand one another and find more common interests aside from Scape.

    Please feel free to share as much as you'd like, but follow this basic format. Please list basic info and add as many general questions as you'd like (keep it pg-13 please)

    I have been in the hobby almost a year.
    What I like about the hobby is that I always find something new and wander deeper into finding myself getting addicted to new plant species and shrimp species
    How I found SCAPE is from a fellow guy from Craigslist I wanted to buy shrimp from him but he was to far away he said go to CK fish world best place for plants and shrimp so I go on YouTube and see SCAPE doing auction so then I join the SCAPE group
    I do swimming
    I have a dog
    I have lived in the same state and Country never left SoCal

    Please no Political or Religeous discussion, it's against forum policy. If this is a joke of some sort, sorry I am out of the loop =/

    Hi Nick! Never knew you we're here since 2010! I thought I was the only one in san bernardino county. If I recalled correctly there was scape meeting few months back in redlands, was it your place? What shop you go to? I used to go to Daryl's petshop when they were at redlands blvd. / texas st. (Mostly fish shop) Then they moved to redlands blvd. / alabama st. (50% fish store). Then they moved downtown to state st. and I feel like they're moving away from aquatic stuff.

    I mainly go to CK fishworld in west covina, worth the drive. Also Pet World in san bernardino across best buy. They have some caridina and neocaridina shrimp but I don't think they care because they don't look good.

    General Questions
    How did you get into the hobby? My dad brought home a 20 gallon tank from the thrift store, and I just slowly started working on it adding plants and hardscape materials. Gradually explored and learned more about the hobby. Started off my livestock w tropical community fish (bettas,guppies,gouramis). Got really inspired by many of the aquascapes I found on the web.
    How many years have you been in the hobby? Less than a year
    What do you like most about the hobby? I get to express my creativity in an artistic format. Aquariums are very calming and relaxing to look at.
    How did you find scape? Hobbyist friend from craigslist
    What other hobbies or interests do you have? Fishing, hiking, skateboarding, trying new food joints, shows/music festivals, weightlifting
    Do you play any sports? Wrestling/Jiu Jitsu,
    What is your favorite food? Japanese Ramen, KBBQ/Brazilian BBQ, Sushi,
    What type of music do you enjoy most? Indie, Ambient music, EDM (trance, house), Metal
    Do you have kids? No
    What other pets do you have? Had a dog.
    Have you lived in any other state/country? No.

    Newbie to the hobby, own a few tanks including a 55 gallon crayfish tank. I go on hikes to find my own hardscape materials and plants if I can find them.
    Looking to start my first planted tank, starting a 10 gallon setup w Okho stone/driftwood hardscape.

    I prefer the meetings or mail order for everything FW related, and even some saltwater.

    Ck is where i go to get beautiful coral and some specialty products.

    I only go to pet world for reef nutrition and pe mysis products, but that will change once ocean aquatics opens.



    Truly, darryl's was a very fine store, but as soon as the landlord at the old building refused to fix the roof, it was the end of an era.
    Their fishroom was what made them famous. Nothing truly amaizng, but for the area, it was an exotic fish lover's dream, and the next best fw store in the area is elliots or shillingtons.
