PostSubject: Greetings from Tucson AZ!!   3/5/2010, 8:59 am

Hello from the grand ole desert !!

I'm Tom and have been a saltwater enthusiast for over 15 yrs. I have enjoyed the wonderful world of salt water since my youth, but wasn't until my latter years was able to afford such a hobby.

I'm rather excited as I'm currently on my second attempt to raise some Perc Clown fry. The first attempt didn't go at all as it was rather a surprise and I wasn't even close to being ready. I didn't realize i had a mating pair until the eggs were noticed LOL. Had those two clowns for like 8 yrs too!!

I do wish there was some place close to get rotifers...damn that waiting to get em and good luck if they are alive when u do!!

I have a 65 gallon tank ( hoping to upgrade to like a 125 gal ). I haven't loaded it with coral and excessive things as I am going to eventually upgrade and then get busy!!.

Looking forward to sharing with other enthusiasts !!

Welcome to the site.

I got my rotifers from reef nutrition.
The starter kit is $30 and is a 2 month supply.
Hope this helps. Try this site, I received mine in 3 days.

Thank you nitty!! I did use reed.com however, due to my not needing them at the time ( fry came and went before rotifers arrived ) they sat in the fridge too long and well, they came and went too. I have new rotifers now i received from ebay (cheaper) and seem to be alive and well and are not sitting in the fridge. I didn't screw around, got em in a bucket keeping em alive. I'm now anxiously awaiting hatching day..btw..those clowns are rather prolific(sp)...man they pump out the eggs!!

Greetings to you too Jcsmit7!!
