  1. Anyone? The biggest show in North America just happened, hosted in NOLA by BRK, and no members here have a single thing to say about it? This is unreal.
  2. True, but the esthetics would be nasty.
  3. I am really dreading this task. I really don't want to put holes in the ceiling of my brand new house, but, it's the only way to use this fixture on an open top tank. Any tips would be appreciated regarding how to make absolutely sure I am putting the holes in the correct place. Plumbob? Laser? I'd ask @Reef Tank Greg's advice, but, he usually falls through the ceiling when doing these kinds of things, lol
  4. I hope so. Went and got a quote on it yesterday, waiting to hear back. With the hurricane in Texas, where Planet Aquarium is located, it will likely delay things a bit.
  5. Looks good, Scott. Keep up the neglect
  6. Yeah, that one... did @Reef Tank Greg drink half of it? Never mind, I forgot he was hyped up on the Long Island Iced Teas
  7. Having a great time so far at MACNA 2017! The pre-party at Fulton Alley was a blast, especially with the *FREE BEER* donated by Abita, one of my favorite brews!
  8. It's holding in there, Mike. I have a portable AC in the garage and a chiller on the system. The garage gets HOT though since it gets full sun in the afternoon. I'd think it's somewhere in the 90s in the garage, but, the chiller and AC are keeping the tank at 80. If I didn't have the AC in there, the heat put off by the chiller's exhaust would probably contribute to boiling the tanks. Hopefully, it won't be TOO much longer before my house is done.
  9. Isn't your TV directly in line with that?
  10. Corey & Ashley, Welcome and thanks for your sponsorship... Now...let's see some pics of those ultra rock nems...
  11. Any of the ORA ones are pretty hardy.
  12. Yeah, Richard's bacon explosion that he cooked on his Green Egg was enough to give us all a heart attack...
  13. A lot of familiar corals in those Kirk's Grandis polyps:). Thanks for sharing pics!
  14. If you haven't seen this system in person, you've missed out!
  15. Thanks for posting about your saltwater journey! By the way, where is Pecan Island?
  16. Don't know how I missed this update, but, Steve, it looks amazing!
  17. Crap. I wonder what the heck's going on in that tank. It's been doing crazy stuff since you set it up. Have you checked all your impellers and magnets to make sure nothing's rusting?
  18. Has anyone seen Aquatic Sealife's recent facebook postings? They're moving to a 4000 sq foot space in July from their current location on David Drive to the K-mart shopping center location "around the block" on Veterans Blvd. Talk about a huge store...I don't think there's been a locally owned store that big here that specialized in fish only, ever. I don't think even Aquarium Imports back in the day had that kind of square footage.
