    Shipment was scheduled for delivery tomorrow, but is being postponed due to fedex shipping issues. Rescheduling shipment for next week.

    No, I wanted to but I ended up moving my tank to our new house. It was the only day I was able to get help to move it. Let me tell ya, that SUCKED! 14 hours of hauling fish, coral, and tank in 14 degree weather.

    It's a really rough week at the Fed Ex hubs unfortunately. Brutal in fact, and delays are pretty much certain at this point for anything routed through Memphis, Indianapolis and Fort worth for the rest of the week. I am contacting everyone who is scheduled for delivery this week about postponing.

    Youngstown, OH here, started my first tank (29g) in 2013 and been hooked (And forever broke) ever since! Using the Triton Method in a 75g now, still waiting to get an ICP test done so the only thing I measure as of late is Alk which is pretty consistent 8.3ish.

    lol No worries it come with the job. We can't control the weather, but in hindsight, we should have held this contest in a more agreeable shipping season. We'll get them al out though thats for sure

    I won't be able to make LEAR, but I am attending the BuckeyeReef Expo March 18th in Perrysburg Ohio. I have been the last three years, and it has become a very impressive venue.

    Im down....My name is Kyle, from Bristol Pa, about 30 mins outside of Philly. Currently Director of Innovation for A.C. Moore (Thought it would be cool to know what everyone does for a living too!) Been doing saltwater since about 2009, but have had fish tank my whole life. That was a 5 gallon, then i moved to a 29 and a 20 long, then to a 3 gallon pico, then to a 28 gallon cube, then back to a 5.5 nd now an 11.5 waterbox AIO. Ive had a lot of tanks, mostly from moving and changing setups. Tanks went from home to office which started with the 3 gallon pico.

    Current tank is mixed reef with Rock flower nems at the bottom(10 adults and about 20 babies) a rainbow BTA, and SPS up top. Current SPS lineup is Vivid rainbow, Walt Disney, Red Robin, JF fox Flame, Cliffs Acro, Setosa, Blue-green Stag, and PC Rainbow. All are frags under 2" Ohh ive got GSP on the back wall.

    Pair of Black ice clowns and a yellow clown goby from a previous tank.

    Lighting is Hydra 26HD, MP10, skimmer, ATO, heater, lol standard equip. Don't really dose, WC sporattically, and rareley test. just judge based on how corals are looking.

    Looking forward to this!
