Despite the fire we keep moving forward.

I have been active in getting a new coral farm up and running in the South Pacific. Received some new corals today.

Glad to see some of the normal day to day work activity being back. All the best. I really like these two pieces and the red Goni on the next page. Could you please share the names and if there are frags in the future or are they colonies or larger pieces?

Thank you and hope you all have a great day.

As you are remodeling use the new LED flat panels in lieu of the old fluorescent troffers. Should be about $50, unless you want the ability to change kelvin, then they are $70

Fire affected the office area of our facility Monday evening. Extensive smoke damage. Livestock systems were not affected and all livestock is unaffected. We have a lot of clean up and construction to do so until further notice we will not be open to walk in customers and shipping will be delayed.

Thank you for your support.

Not a lot of progress. Insurance and the public adjuster are working out the settlement, but likely that will be months away.

Today they brought in an office trailer. Combined with possibly a new entrance from the outside into the greenhouse, we hopefully will be able to soon allow walk-in customers. The inside facility likely will need to be demolished and rebuilt. Smoke damage and current codes require removing the roof, outer and many inside walls. All taking many months to accomplish.

All livestock remain healthy and happy and growing. We are shipping daily.

The portable heater, air scrubbers, and dehumidifiers are all doing their jobs well. Our AC units and large dehumidifier are all destroyed and will need to be replaced. We're slowly digging out all the damaged office and packing area stuff and filling giant dumpsters.

I’m glad to see you were able to keep things going, and of course very sorry you are having to go through this. It’s a tough enough business to begin with. The added stress and financial drain, especially with all that’s going on now, can’t be easy. I hope you, your family and your staff are holding up well, and keeping healthy.
I just placed my first order with you tonight, and can’t wait to receive it. It’s only a small one for now, this set up is only a few months old, but I’m looking forward to placing many more.

Right now we are in the haggling/waiting period with the insurance company. Probably a month or two away from settlement, then rebuild can begin. Pretty much feel stuck in time since the fire. Livestock is still happy and we're working around some challenges.

Good luck Dr. Mac, hopefully your facility will be back even stronger when the dust settles.
It's amazing sometimes when you think why we all buy any type of insurance and how they do not perform as they should when peddled.
