Reefers in the Kootenays, there are not many of us! I have been in Nelson for over a year now and feel it will be home for a while. I have only been into the hobby for three years and desperately need to meet other enthusiasts.

I'm new to the Koot's as well, good to see another one come out of the woodwork. A few more and we might warrant a meet and greet!

Tell us about your set up if you don't mind?

My tank has been up and running as a saltwater for nearly 2005 we have moved 4 times but virtually the same setup. I have never had a ton of money to throw at it so it has always stayed small.
33gtank, hang on remora skimmer, aqua clear 400 filter withfoam and usually carbon, 4x39w T5 lights, and two additional powerheads for flow.
Corals: moonstone, frogspawn, zoo's, gsp, and some brown toadstool leathers.
Inverts: One-two (who knows anymore?) peppermint shrimp, and some snails, two diggers.
Fish: Only one gold band clown, but I am considering getting a powder blue and a lawnmower this week to keep her company. Would really like to get some more frags.

I would agree, I have never actually had a friend in the hobby. For many years I have just been wondering around thinking I was alone.

I've never had a ton of money either wife and kids come first,my setup is pretty basic but it works just fine,my colti is going to split again soon and I could always frag off some leather if interested,it would be nice to meet others in the kootney area for advice ,swaps ect...

i'd be up for a meeting of local reefers. i probably know of another dozen or so in the area, i could get the word out for a meet..
i've been talking with chris, another member on canreef about the same idea.

I think that would be a good idea for kootney reeefers to meet once in a while I know of one other in creston and I know there is more.

I would be up for it. It would be good to meet others and like Freddy says it would also be a good way to expand our tanks. I have a couple brown toadstool leathers that I could trade. If somebody organizes it I would be in.

Hey guys,

Me and some others locally in the Okanagan have been working on starting a club. I was hoping to announce more about it later this month. Maybe we could encompass the interior too ? Website and all those fun things are almost done, along with forum too. Let me know :)

if you could include our kootenay side that would be great. that has been a goal of mine to set something up as i know there are other reefers around

let me know if you require some help,

rob
