    Hope you don't have what is going around here. It only kept me down for 4 or 5 days but I have some co workers who are still struggling with congestion 3 to 4 weeks in. :(

    Dayquil, Nyquil and Sudafed are your friends! Get healthy! ;Doctor

    If you have co-workers that are not better after 4 weeks of being sick then they should be classified as undead and must be met with headshots. Just sayin.

    This came in for the 75 today! Got it running in the 40B for now, I have another one on order. I know two is likely overkill, but go big or go home!

    Lucky!
    UPS slowed down today looked at my driveway once and kept on cruisin' lol
    No boxes of rocks today
    I have a snowdrift in my yard that has to be armpit deep and still blowing out there. Going to be cool looking tomorrow, I'll take some pics if I can get out my door.

    Definitely go reef ready. The non (at least the ones i tested) all had tempered glass. And unless you test it in the store you're taking a gamble.

    I don't think two is overkill, I have two maxspects in my 90 and they do the job very well together.

    Definitely a thumbs up to the gyres. I've got 2 xf250s running in the 125. And I only have them at 50% peak, alternating. The sps are going to love the action!

    The other gyre came in today. I decided to put it in the 40B with the other one for now because....well why not? ;Hilarious

    Next objective is to slowly start swapping out the lighting. I'm selling the metal halide fixture to pay for the new setup for the 75. So if anyone is looking for a metal halide fixture, hit me up ;)
