  1. Natural Reefkeeping

    Thanks for sharing, and welcome to the board!
  2. Finally made it here from LARC

    Welcome! Glad to hear the good news about your son!
  3. Yes, they are. Some have recovered, some have died, but, overall, things are doing alright...and unfortunately, the aiptasia has gone into overdrive, as well!
  4. House is built...been living in it a month now... Original plans had a fish room, but, it added too much square footage to the house == a LOT more money since contractors charge by the square foot.
  5. SHOULD be able to go, if I am feeling better by then.
  6. Well, the problem is, I don't have a dedicated fish room, so, a plywood tank isn't really going to work if it can't be put in wall. I don't want to see the plywood frame around the window glass on three sides
  7. Upgrade Alert..Bobby's(Saldarya) Old Tank

    Looking good, Derron!

    What he said...
  9. Pickin up the pieces(300 build)

    Jordan, What kind of rock is is that? It looks like pocillapora, and I've only seen that stuff in use one other place before now, and the guy said he had it for almost 10 years.

    Hahah...that's a picture for the ages with Coffey wearing the man-capris and rocking a man-bun.

    I spoke to Chip earlier today, he said they are typically taking 2-3 weeks for builds at this time. The bad news is that deliveries are done on Thursdays. They can't ship it to the store either, he says, because it is to wide to fit through the front door.

    TK! The swamp monster...yeah, he could morph into the rougaroux and just toss that bitch over his shoulder!

    The saga continues.... ...placed my order for the new tank today @ Aquatic Specialties. Should be here in 6 weeks. This tank is supposed to weigh over 600lbs with the 3/4" thick glass. I think I'm going to need just a LITTLE help getting this sucker inside the house when it arrives. Any takers? DFW is going to deliver it directly to my house instead of the store.
  15. Just as an aside, I keep my return section set to the bare minimum height required to keep the pump covered by about 1” of water over its top. If you fill that section up to near the top, you’ve got no reserve volume when the power is shut off and back siphoning occurs.
