Hi Pete, Hope this note finds you well.
My name I Greg Agrusa and I am interested in taking your Sea Horse Certification course. I am an avid reefer and started in the hobby about 6 years ago with a jbj 28 nano cube.I modified the lighting on it to be able to control the LED channels and grow SPS corals. I had great success with that tank and soon outgrew it and upgraded to a 120 gallon with a 40 gallon sump, mixed reef but primarily sps dominant tank.which has been up and running for about 4 years. I recently set up my 28 again and am going to use it to acclimate and train a captive bred pair of mandarins.I figure this should take about 4 to 6 months and after that I plan on leaving it set up and converting it to a seahorse tank.
Both tanks are controlled by 2 apex controllers, with the 120 having all the bells and whistles to make it very automated. I grow my own phyto, have a brine shrimp hatching station, a 2.5 gallon amphipod culture, a blackworm culture tank, a QT tank ready to go at a moments notice and 2 hospital tanks that are also ready to go at a moments notice.
I would like to take the full course and learn as much as I can so when I am ready to get the seahorses up and running I will be prepared. Hope to hear from you soon,
