My name is K.C. and I live in Modesto. I am new to saltwater (had small FW tanks for 8 years or so), and I am currently setting up a 40 gallon Truvu. Still needs a few plumbing parts, some acrylic work converting the wet/dry into a refugium, prob a week or 2 before it is up and running...

I am an ex computer tech with a degree in electronics engineering, currently working as a bodyguard. I am into computers (just built myself a sick 6 core rig), music (plays bass), guns (like to hit the range a couple times a month).

Hi there!

Though I'm pretty experienced with freshwater (I have sooo many tanks...), saltwater is very very new to me! I'm out in exciting Oakdale (har har) and got an established 12 gallon nanocube dx from someone very cheap! So I've been learning as I go.... no disasters yet!
