    Hello!

    Post by crw.npt on Fri Dec 02, 2011 9:16 pm

    Hello everyone! My name is Charlie. I am new to the site, and new to the Fort Myers area, but not new to aquariums. I have been keeping aquariums on and off since I was about ten, but currently don't have anything set-up. I have done it all as far as aquariums go, from hokey little bowls with just some plants, to a 35 gallon reef that I had for a few years. Right now, I am really into planted aquariums(again) and am active on the Aquatic Plant Central Forum.

    I am a tattoo artist and work at Fort Mters Beach Tattoo, you can check out my work at fmbtattoo.com or facebook.com/pinpricktattoos If anybody on here likes tattoos, hit me up!

    Looking forward to meeting some like minded people through here!!

    Welcome Charlie.. I'm one of the Long-Distance members.. Virginia in fact. But.. somehow I've gotten to know some of the group here and I swear you'll not find a friendlier and more helpful group than these folks... So tell us.. what's going to be your first of many builds?.. Bill in Va.

    Well, as soon as we get our own place, I plan on setting up an Okefenokee Pygmy Sunfish biotope in a little ten gallon half-moon that I have. The tank is currently home to a hatchling Ouichita map turtle, but once we get settled, he gets a new home and I get to set up a fish tank. Yay me! I have lots of plans for future tanks, it'll just take a while.

    Welcome cheers

    Nice tattoo work! I have been contemplating getting a coverup...... I have a stack of various sized tanks and a pile of equipment..... Do you trade?

    I would have to discus it with my boss, but maybe. Back home, I would have just said yeah, sure but I'm still learning how the new shop works and what-not. Swing into the shop sometime and we can talk about it. I'm always interested in talking tattoos(while I'm at work, that is) and I'd love to meet some more people other than my co-workers and my church Life Group.

    Hey Fern, I talked with the boss and unfortunately, right now, she isn't too keen on trades and what not. But... come in and we can talk about your cover-up. I would still be interested in working something out for you.

    And Zeke, you don't need to be scared of needles. Once a tattoo machine is set up it doesn't look like needles at all. And tattoos don't feel like needles either. Now, piercings on the other hand....

    Thanks Fern. Snakes are my other hobby(read: passion) but my wife unfortunately won't let snakes in the house. She doesn't mind the turtle, cuz he's just so cute!, she tolerates the dart frogs, cuz they sing so pretty, and she liked the fish tanks we had in the past, cuz they were relaxing, but snakes, no freaking way. And anytime you want to swing by the shop is totally cool with me.

    Hey Charlie,
    Welcome to the insanity, hope you like what you see. If you need help with any tanks let me know I always have something for sale/trade. I'll take second place in line since Fern offered first.

    Not sure how close to San Carlos Park you are but a stop by my house with the kids is well worth the trip. Our house is all decorated for Christmas and we have free movies on Fri & Sat nights, we also give out free candy canes to everyone who stops by. 18481 Narcissus Road

    Thanks Joe. To be honest, I don't know how close I am to San Carlos Park, but I do have a GPS. Wink That would definitely be something fun for the monsters. Thanks!
