Hi my name is Ryan, I'm 23 years old and live in NW columbus. I have had several fish tanks since I was about 10yrs old. I had my first planted tank when I was about 12 or so and maintained it for a couple years untill I had the urge to try a Marine reef tank. I played with marine for about 3years and gave it up because I was starting college and didn't have the time, money or energy to keep up with it anymore. I completely got out of the hobby for a couple years untill last winter/spring when I got the itch again and decided to start a 75gallon high light planted tank. During that time I found APC and recently joined SWOAPE.
Aside from aquaria, I'm still in college at OSU studying Civil Engineering. For the last 5years I've worked for a local engineering/architecture firm called Burgess and Niple (pronouced Nye-ple).
