General Operations Manager
Yalcin handles much of the day to day maintenance of the tanks including water and equipment testing as well as the critical aspect of feeding all of the tanks. While this aspect of many tanks is often thought of as trivial, with a tank this size as well as with the number of other tanks it has proven critical to its long-term success that Yalcin develop a feeding regimen that not only keeps the fish and corals healthy and happy, but also so that it does not pollute the tank or produce excess nutrients. In this regard Yalcin has become a maestro of keeping the fish and their feeding in harmony.
Dive & Coral Care
Dun is the newest member of the team and is just getting his feet wet in the hobby. While his innocence might be looked at as a negative by some, his desire to learn and absorb all of this new information provides him the opportunity to ask questions that otherwise the team might take for granted. In his role of managing all new coral quarantine and care his ability to observe even tiny problems that others may miss has proved invaluable. As this project continues to grow, we anticipate Dun’s knowledge and expertise to grow with it.

Jonathan Hale has been involved since the start of this project and has not only been central in the overall design and construction of many of the tanks including the 17,000-gallon tank, but he also helped bring in specialists to handle the engineering and other important tasks. He also handles all of the large maintenance tasks as well as any other problems that might arise with these tanks and all of the related equipment.
