My name is Cory. I am a Reef addict.
I grew up on the West Coast, practically living in the ocean so I have always had a soft spot for marine life and all things ocean.
I don’t do well inland. It’s usually flat and dry… I get nose bleeds… anyways…
I looked into and stalked reef forums for 5-6 years, dreaming and plotting but never pulling the trigger on my own tank because it was so intimidating to get into. It seemed like everyone knew what to do and it was a bit of a ‘club’. I was wrong.
The amazing thing about this hobby is it’s sense of community. Everyone helps each other. Build threads, forums, reviews, etc. If you ask a question that’s been asking 100 times before someone will still answer it. It’s amazing. The support is unreal.
I researched and read everything I could, learned as much as I could, just in case.
By trade I am a Visual Effects Artist working in TV and FIlm.
(Follow me @KuruptPixel as well if you are into that.)
I have always tinkered with t shirt design, clothing, art, photography, yadda, yadda and noticed there is no real apparel for this hobby! All of the shirts I was seeing were basically big shop logo’s on a stock tee. And if they weren’t they were some CafePress style iron on prints.
Either way, we didn’t have many great options.
I plan to keep making art and designs for my fellow reef tank lovers and addicts. I want to collaborate with other reefers to help bring their ideas to life as well.
I want to donate more time and money to causes and organisations that are helping save our reefs and oceans around the world as well as educating a younger generation on how to rebuild and maintain them.
This addiction… I mean, hobby… consumes most of us and becomes a great part of our lives.
The pride we all have from building and growing out our own tanks keeps us going.
Showing OFF our tanks keeps us thriving!
Learn. Educate. Protect. And most importantly, Enjoy!
