    Thought I would take a moment this morning to introduce myself. My name is Larkin, I'm from Hammond, La. I was told about LARC by Bandit1994 while making a quick stop at Petco to just see what they had before heading home yesterday. I recently just got back into keeping a reef tank after almost 20 years away from this end of the hobby. My present reef tank is a 40 breeder that is about a month old. I've been keeping fish for almost 50 years now. Presently have a 75 and 65 that both are stocked with african cichlids. The 40 breeder reef tank, 5 koi ponds ranging in size from 600 gallons (QT pond) 10,500 gallon for my show Koi, 9000 gallon for my butterfly koi, 245,000 Est. gallon grow out mud pond, and 45,000 gallon fry pond also for growing out Koi fry. plus two 800 gallon ponds for goldfish and paradise fish which I grow year round outdoors. Look forward to chatting and learning and hopefully meeting some new folks in the hobby. DSC08188 (2).JPG

    Welcome to Larc.
    You have a fair amount of water to maintain, impressive for sure with so many ponds.
    We do have a fresh water section and some ponds folks post about as we all like everything related to the hobby and some things not even close though sharing is a good thing right ?

    Your tank looks good so far, glad you bumped into Chad/ @bandit1994 in town so he could tell you all about Larc.
    Do not hesitate to ask questions related to the hobby or related to the forum, Many of our members are helpful and know one or two things about three or four things :D

    Anyway, make yourself at home here and enjoy the many topics already going on OR start one yourself if you feel the need.
    Good luck and happy Reefing
    BluewaterLa/ Mike

    That is inspirational. The ponds, the gazebo and the view just all tie together nicely.
