Diggin' the sport coat! You were definitely stylin' & profilin'!

Going to have to dig around for high school grad pic. I think I might have one on FB but haven't used that account in quite some time other than the marketplace.
I’m digging around. This could be fun or funny at least

i know we're sharing some photo's, but i want some opinions. Should the 10g have a Sand bed or not? If no, should i allow the GSP to overtake the bottom? If yes, how does one avoid GSP touching the rock work?

Sand would be up to you. Personally, I prefer a shallow sand bed. The GSP can make life miserable. Whatever it is near, it will cover over, unless you watch it closely and trim frequently. Hard to get it off of rock though. In my new tank, I have a large goniopora skeleton that I will keep some on and trim it when gets close to the bottom.

If you wanted bare bottom with a zoa garden covering the bottom. That would be sweet

Ok peeps. While picking out more asterinas I noticed a pretty sizeable clump of bubble algae growing on my wavemaker. I'm going to pull it out and scrub it under hot water in the sink. Should I also dip it in some vinegar or peroxide or something after scrubbing it? I'd rinse it well of course. I don't want this crud spreading in my otherwise algae free tank.

With that much coralline buildup, I would suggest a good 15 minute soak in some vinegar and hot water and a nice scrub with a toothbrush. You'll gain back some flow that the coralline has robbed.

Ha! I ran across this pic of me in high school in California last night - out of my yearbook (1972)! It gave me an idea. How about a yearbook picture challenge and let's see some of the rest of the Katrina thread people back in the good old days? I bet not many will be in black and white. :)

That one of me holding the piston was from the 50s. :) Remember to share the good with the bad, like me. :)

I have very few pics from my high school days.
A few is good. Doesn't have to be high school. I went back into the 50s. :) They can't be any more embarrassing than mine. I was half nekkid in one of them!
