Happy Thanksgiving!
I may be spending it alone waiting for a Covid test but my symptoms are mild enough to let me cook.
So I did. Best turkey I’ve ever made

6 days ago I enjoyed a nice 10 mile run. Today I’m warn out by putting up Christmas decorations. It may not be Covid but I’m not loving it.

It’s slow going but making progress.

That is a pretty tree, friend. I think I see several Star Wars ornaments. Definitely a BB8 and I think a Jedi with a red light saber. BTW are you watching the Mandalorian? Not the best show ever but I am enjoying it. Also found a behind the scenes at Animal Kingdom show that is pretty neat. Not that I am one to watch TV, usually. And What a yummy looking spread for Thanksgiving.

Good eyes! Yup, there are a few Star Wars ornaments on there. My bachelor pad has a Star Wars vibe :p
I think the Mandalorian is great. It started slow for me but had me hooked by episode 3. I haven't seen the last 2 episodes yet. I've been watching the Animal Kingdom show, also. I really like it. Lots of great documentaries on Disney +. One Day At Disney, a 10-15 minute show highlighting an employee, is great for a quick fix. Lots of good programs about imagineering.
If you haven't seen, there is a Disney holiday sing along on Monday night on ABC!

same here - hope its negative
:)
keep safe!
Well, my test came back negative. Not sure I trust it, but it came back negative. I am starting to feel better, but still have a nagging cough.
I felt good enough that I worked on my aquarium for a few hours. Things are still fairly stable and some corals I thought were a complete loss may not be. I see at least a few small sections of flesh at the base of some of the ones I thought were gone. Was really glad that I may not have lost my Battlestag. Not much left, but it can grow back.

And, crazily enough, I saw a fish this morning that I haven't seen in months. It is hiding deep in the rocks but it looked fairly healthy. My guess is that the Damsels keep him from coming out more. Amazing how 4 little damsels can own a 187g system.

Hey Brew, any chance you’d be willing to share your lighting schedule? I just picked up some mitras for my tank, and you seem to have great success with them!
I keep telling myself I should redo my lighting so I can share it more easily. I did quite a few modifications without using the Light Composer software so I would need to write out every inflection point of each channel.
Now that I'm happy with it, I can redo it in Light Composer so I can send people that file. Just takes time.... :rolleyes:

All good! I’ll play around with it when the tanks up and running!

You may find this useful. First, my blue, royal blue and hyper violet channels are all set to 120% in the firmware with my red, green and SLL-EVL at 80% to get a PAR boost in the critical spectrum. The 3 boosted channels are all set like this.
