    Well I've been meaning to start a new thread for all my miscellaneous stuff, and since we have several new members this month what better time. I'll start with a quick intro, for those of you who don't me.
    My name is Steven, I'm currently 26 and live in Easley, South Carolina. I'm married to the beautiful @Miss TMRC and we have two awesome pit bulls, a chicken, and a slight fish addiction. In 2017 I started my LLC, Exotic Aquatics, I keep and (attempt to) breed several species of fish, shrimp, plants etc, and have a YouTube channel which I will link below, subscribe if you like, I just started back around June. I've been a moderator here at PRA since January of 2016 and enjoy it very much. I'm also a member of a few other fishy forums but don't have much reason to visit them these days lol.

    I've worked in racing most of my life, both as a car builder and pit crew member, mainly oval late model stuff, but it's taken me to much of the southeast US. I also enjoy sports, I'm a die hard Carolina Gamecock fan, I ride a Suzuki Gsxr 600, love fast cars, tattoos, whiskey, video games, long walks on the beach :ROFLMAO: etc....

    I'll get to all my tanks below, but it's honestly ever changing, I keep adding tanks and wanting new things, shipment of super cool fish coming Wednesday, but im not spoiling it until they get here (safely).

    Good to meet you Steven. We've chatted plenty but I didn't know too much about you yet.

    Same to you Dewayne, I've gotten to know you pretty well now. I love making new fishy friends, so few people in everyday life understand it like we do, it's almost a lifestyle, so i enjoy getting to know hobbyists so we can waste time talking about things no one else cares about.

    Forums can be rewarding done correctly. I have a lot of hobbies and have made many new friends over the past few decades. Ended up traveling to quite a few states and even Alaska to fly fish, attend classic pickup truck shows, tropical fish shows etc. Shipped and received a lot of helpful gifts from forum users. And just a lot of fun hanging out on the net with the ones you never meet in person.

    So very true! Gotten to know you Steven, as well as Dewayne, and Clay, and so many others through this wonderful forum. Even though I knew some elsewhere, I've gotten the chance to know them so much better than I did before. It's nice to have friends to talk fish stuff to, I don't have anyone in everyday life who cares about this hobby. :LOL:

    @NightShade bottom pic is a crab who somehow developed the ability to ride a snail around the tank, pretty impressive if you ask me.

    You're too kind Clem, but the tank is actually pretty rough. Its getting better, and we will get it where we want it. Its pretty bare right now.

    I miss that crab..he was one of our first and was super active. I once saw him climb the powerhead and get to the part where the water is shooting out..he went for a ride across the tank after being shot off of it :ROFLMAO: it was hilarious. I named him Fabio after the hair algae started growing on his shell. I would even give him a "haircut" every time I did algae removal and it would still come back on him lol. I think he actually like the hair on his shell lol
