    House is dusty like hell at the moment from all the sanding.

    Well, I was in the lucky position to grab it from @Diesel hence the history is perfect on this coral.
    In his tank it looked even a bit better where I was heading to.....and then came the flood and the broken tank dang it ;-)

    Status of today ;-)

    Hoping to get the walls textured and painted in the next 2 weeks.
    The new stand is planned to arrive in the next 2-3weeks as well so that would be perfect.

    At the moment it is ok, since I do not want to have all this dust and the aerosols from the fresh paint into the tank anyways.

    Today’s update quick......
    Stand builder got me the good news that the Stand is confirmed to be shipped tomorrow.

    That is 2 weeks prior the original estimated schedule.

    Since I worked in Steel Fabrication in my earlier life, I like the way they build and what tools they did use!!!
    Here are just a few pictures from the build.
    Btw, the stand lays on the side :)

    Thx a lot to Jason Gregory who is my Stand builder with Worldclassaquariums.com ....

    THX, yes it was a journey.
    Hope my important ones are going to make it.

    Lost a few by now, but mostly have a backup frag left.
    What hurts was an original Pearlberry I lost completely :-(
    2-3 more important ones that I hope at least a branch is going to make it through the stress.

    Stand is in shipment now.

    Sorry to hear about the pearlberry. It's not easy to find these days.
