Hello there, my name is Matt, I'm a budding ceph enthusiast in Orland Park, southwest of Chicago. I have plans in the works to construct a tank to house cuttlefish, and I've been reading a lot of the articles here to get an idea of how to go about it. I work for Aquarium Adventure, we like to think of ourselves as a local fish store even though we are a chain, and it allows me to spend all my free time (wait, what's that?) researching cephalopods because hey, it's work-related! Working there also will eventually afford me the option to order my cuttles in whatever manner the vendor sells them, which is exciting. Between me and a couple of my coworkers, we're excited about my foray into ceph-keeping. My interest in keeping fish and other animals focuses on weird, exotic species; I cleared out my African cichlid 29g tank because I was bored with keeping fish everyone has, and now it houses a leaf fish and a prawn, two pretty weird but awesome animals. I also have a 150g agricultural trough with about 40g of water in it and some heat lamps for my turtles: a map turtle named Jacques, a red eared slider named Vince, and a softshell named Lexi. I have a leopard gecko (his name is Bosley) and I'm boarding Pepper, my friend's red-tailed boa, because apparently his mom would have a heart attack at the prospect of a snake in the house. That same friend and I collaborate on his 120g reef tank, where we just recently witnessed his mandarin dragonets mating. I was really into keeping fish as a younger kid, and after many years of other nerdy interests, I dove back into the hobby head first in mid-07. Since then I've been reading as much as I can and working with the hobby as much as my wallet allows, and it's been really great. The search for a lasting lifelong passion has been a long one but I've definitely found it. Whenever I'm able to afford going back to school, I'll be doing it for a degree in marine biology, so I can move on to do really cool things, possibly with the budding field of cephalopod behavioral study. Who knows, but it's all so cool regardless. Cheers, folks!
