Yes, I do, Its a reptile heater that I stuck to the back of the tank, the reason I use this is so I don't take up space in the aquarium.
This thread makes me want a pico

Ok, I might be able to go to the fish store today, because I thought maybye someone could drive me there, then I can stay in the car while the person goes into the fish store and buys the stuff I want, its not certain that this person will say yes.

If you have Covid you should be quarantining. You could pass it to the person driving you, and then they could pass it to anyone they come in contact with. Getting corals isn’t a priority, it can wait until you’re no longer contagious (if you got it on Friday, you are likely still contagious,
you’re supposed to isolate for 10 days). If you absolutely can’t wait (which, why?), just have the person pick up what you need and have them drop it off on your porch. There’s just no reason to potentially infect someone else to get some corals.

I agree about the social distancing and the person going for you with a wish list and leaving it on your front door for you but it's your choice imo and theirs.
Wow amazing this got to 8 pages so fast lol. Got to do some back reading.

The person lives with me, and they got covid last week while on holiday, in new south whales if someone you live with gets covid, but you have gotten covid in the last 6 weeks, you don't have isolate.

I am very sorry for taking so long to upload pictures, but here's my aquarium now with the extra zoas and I have changed the aqua scape, as you can see my rock is starting to grow brown algae wich I believe means I'm in the ugly stages, also as you can see I'm not the best aquarium photographer, any tips on taking photos of the aquarium would be appreciated!

I am trying to trouble shoot my bad photography. There are a few things that I forgot to add to my last post, It turns out I got another aspasia on my zoas frag, lucky I got rid of it. I also got lots of copepods and a snail that spends 90% of its life buried in the sand. I also got these weird white tunes that are about 5mm, I got lots if free stuff. When I work out better photos I will post them, I am very happy with the end result.

Oh, forgot to add when a sale comes up sexy shrimp will be added, so stay tuned for that, I may also add a yuma mushroom. I have also started feeding my coral, I have been feeding the zoas juice from brine shrimp and I have been feeding the mushrooms whole brine shrimp. The coral reacting is so Cool, the mushrooms eating are my fav!
