Welcome to R2R!
@revhtree - Thank you for putting this thread together. Each moderator has given the Brotherhood/Sisterhood of passionate reefers a glimpse of their identity that much of us can relate. May God continue to bless the work of your hands and grant you continued favor in your life. See you guys on Sunday @RAP.
Interesting to see the faces behind the aviator
First Name: Meredith
Why you choose your screen name: It's easy to remember since it's my email
Area of strength in the hobby: Fish disease and diagnosis, Clownfish and a little about a lot of other stuff. I work at a LFS near me and tend to have to keep myself polished up on corals and fish and even equipment or else my customers would be very disappointed.
Favorite hobbies outside of reefing: I love to garden, though I'm not very good at it. My 3 year old son takes up a lot of time, but I guess that's not really a hobby is it? I do enjoy reading and have a few favorite series that I tend to stick with and reread occasionally. Having 3 jobs doesn't help in the hobby department.
What you enjoy most about the saltwater hobby: I love learning new things every day, helping others, and seeing the fruits of hard labor, thought, time and money come to bare. It's amazing to look back at an early full tank shot and then look at the tank now. All the changes and growth is just amazing to me. Most of all, I love the friends I have made through this hobby. They are wonderful people that I'm proud and blessed to know.
So, I'm having a hard time locating recent pictures on my new laptop. So here goes....
My wedding day. These are some of my favorite people right here. That's my sister on the far right and my husband on the left closest to me. It's one of my favorite pictures of the day. It shows our weird, fun side perfectly.
Me and my son. I was a stay at home mom for 3 years so I have tons of pictures of us together. He's my most favorite person in the world and my husband is totally cool with being #2. That's why he's #2 and not #3 lol.
One of my birthdays. My husband tends to take me to the World Aquarium in Dallas when he can't think of anything else to do for my birthday. He knows me well enough to know I still love it.
So I guess that's it. Nice to meet ya'll
I'm glad that I got to know you.
Hey Diesel! You're one of those special people that I'm blessed to know.
Your a mod now?
lol just kidding
Congrats Meredith. You will be a great addition to the R2R team!
Awesome diesel you were one of the first people to give me advice on this forum! And it was solid great advice! Now R2R it's all I use because of people like you. Take care
^^^^^^Hey Bro, all my pleasure.^^^^^^^^
Glad you like R2R but it ain't only me, we have a great team here and AMAZING members like you is a must for this forum to be not only the best we can be but just a good friendly place to hang and not only for sake of this hobby.
How's your tank doing?
I'm right at the point of getting ready to put water into it. But I live in Cocoa Beach Florida. So I guess I am lucky that I took my time. Cause it looks like we are going to get hammered with Mathew the Class 4 hurricane it is going to go right over our town/house. We will see by Sunday if I even have a home left let alone an aquarium. I have been through a lot of hurricanes ( compared to most people) and this is by far the worst one that I have seen hit this area. It is beautiful to live down here(great weather year around, beautiful beaches and lots of fun things to do) but this is the price we pay sometimes. But I do really like the website and am grateful for how people treat you and help you without making you feel like a idiot when you ask a question because you didn't know something. Anyway I gotta get back to boarding up my home.
Prayers are sent for you and everyone in its path. Hopefully you are able to weather this storm without any problems. Keep preparing for it and stay safe.
Thank you to all the mods and the R2R team for all you guys do for our community.
