Hi I'm Ashley I heard about this site from WAfishbox.com and figured I'd join.

My boyfriend and I currently have a bunch of fish and tanks. I have to thank him for getting me addicted to this hobby, I love it. We have A 450gal, 400gal, 250gal, 2 150gals and various smaller tanks.

Let me see if I can figure out how to post some pictures.

The 400gal


The 250gal



The 55gal


Some fish




Hmm realized I didn't have many updated pictures. I will have to get some more

Thanks everyone! Yeah I try not to because the dogs panic but I think it is hilarious! lol

We only have freshwater. That is all we are really interested in, for now. The market for tanks is pretty good here. I mean we have gotten all of our tanks for dirt cheap on craigslist you just have to look every day. Our fish and filtration cost WAY more than we paid for the tanks. What kind of fish do you keep pillie? And why are you guys moving to WA? Family or just enjoy the rain? lol

Yeah it's definitely beautiful here. A couple hours drive and you can get to the ocean, mountians and the desert in all directions. So that is pretty cool. But yeah let me know when you move and we can take you to all the cool fish stores. Do you know what part of WA?

And what kind of fish do you have now?

Fairly familiar with those areas!! Other than all the new stuff they put in since I lived/grew up that way. On occassion I may a trip up just for "fishy trades" and an excuse to drop one of the boys off to entertain an uncle for a afternoon LOL the aunty loves that, she is getting used to me plugging in heaters and an air pump for overnight visits.

Have you been down to 38th & Pacific in Tacoma there used to be a awesome asian owned fish store there, loved that place next to the fish store out towards Graham was the best around other than driving to Seattle (another uncle had a 150g reef back in the day only the big aquariums had a setup like it) so we made regular roadtrips looking for just the right corals.
