Default Hello from Sarasota, Fl

Hello everyone. I've been collecting orchids for about 30 years and have had reef aquariums even longer. I decided to try to convert an aquarium to a terrarium with an emphasis on orchids but will add other plats as well. I haven't started yet. I'm still in the research phase to gather as much info as possible before I begin. I think I'd like to start with a basic old school 55 gallon aquarium and learn with that. I'm glad I found this site. it seems very informative! Thanks and hello. Jim

LOL...not a problem.
I was in the bbq biz for years and have been running a smoker since I was a little kid. I cook every weekend and hang in the pool with a cigar and some whiskey. Swing by for some grub anytime....your location says Central Fl. I used to live all over central Fl

Hey Jim, When is that BBQ? ;-)
Hello from your neighbor in North Port.

BTW, I, for different reasons, have just started a terrarium. It was out of necessity to keep mini orchids hydrated while I was on vacation for a week, and not having someone to care for their daily watering. All did really well for a quick set up in a reptile 'tank'. Now, I'm going to fine tune it.

LOL...my smoker runs just about every weekend.
Once I'm up and running I want to get into mini's. They are pretty cool. I've had a couple over the years when I had a green house. Once we moved and I didn't have a green house we lost them.
