    First Name: Roberto


    Why You chose your screen name: I've gone by Roberto most of my life but since moving to Knoxville from Miramar, Fl back in 2006, I realized it was much easier to have southerners call me Rob.


    Current Tank Specs: Deep Blue Pro: 60 gallon rimless 48"x24"x12" and a Deep Blue Pro 7 gallon rimless cube 12"x12"x12"


    Area of strength in the hobby: Acropora and Euphillia care.

    Favorite hobby outside reefing: I spend most of my free time playing and watching football with my twin boys Twins Birthday 023.jpg




    What else would be cool to include? I'd like to add a short bio: I am originally from Miramar/Hollywood Fl, as mentioned earlier I moved to Tn in 2006. I got interested in the hobby in 2009, along with Scuba Diving, I guess since moving to a land locked state I had to find some way to get the Ocean back in my life. I am a professional tile installer but hope to be able to retire from tile soon, my knees can't take much more. I attended Le Cordon Bleu Miami school of culinary arts in 2003/2004, I worked as Sous Chef back in Miami but went back to tile work since moving, my dream is to buy a food truck, I dearly miss cooking and sharing my love for food.

    Sahin.



    Why You chose your screen name?
    Couldn't think of anything cool; if I did it was already used, so I used my first name. Its the screen name I used when I joined ReefCentral around 13 years ago; any subsequent forum I join or have joined, I use the same screen name.



    Current Tank Specs?
    47G SPS Reef with ATI LED Powermodule. I keep mainly Acropora. Its a sort of personal challenge; growing and getting the SPS coloured up and looking brilliant is what I strive for.



    Area of strength in the hobby?
    I have what I consider good general reefkeeping knowledge; however my strength I think lies in
    Acropora care.


    Favorite hobby outside reefing?
    Photography...in the past few years that has changed to aquarium photography due to a lack of free time; I have 3 children!
    :cry:


    What else would be cool to include?
    I have a passion for reefkeeping and captive care of SPS corals. I also have a degree in Conservation Ecology, so having a science background has further increased my liking of the hobby.

    I have a wife and 3 beautiful kids; my time is therefore spent on them and any spare time I have left is for the hobby.

    Haha, wasnt expecting to post a photo of myself, but here goes:
