Thank you for your support!

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.
I hope everyone is still doing well. I’m sure everything that’s going on is making the process even harder for you. Hopefully everything comes together soon.
I wanted to let you know I received my order from you today. Absolutely amazing! I can’t thank you enough. Everything was perfect, and looked better than in the pictures. All the corals are acclimated and in the tank. Within an hour all six had Their polyps open and looked happy. Even the hammer had started to open. You guys are the absolute best. Even a phone call to make sure everything arrived okay. I can’t wait to order again.

Thank you for your order and kind words. Look forward to serving you again soon!

Well, it's been a while since I updated our progress. Anyone that has dealt with a situation like this knows that things move slowly with insurance companies.

We have done all needed demolition and just starting to put things back together. Our livestock systems are still running normally. We are taking the opportunity to change our floor plan and do some upgrades. Just today got one of three AC unit running again. Our geothermal cooling loops for our livestock systems were not affected. Progress will be rapid now. New walls will be in by the end of the week.

We are shipping daily and local customers can order online for pick up. We are not open for walk-in customers.

I'm definitely an old school reef keeper. But, I've decided it's time to step into the 21st century! See what a little fire will do to you!

OK, free frags or clams to an experienced Apex/Trident/Dos owner to come out and set these up for me :) And you can't laugh at the old man (me)!! Actually, I'm still awaiting WiFi, should be accomplished by the end of the week though.

I wish I was near you because I would do it just for fun. Setting it all up I don't think will be that bad. The honest to goodness most difficult part is actually placement of the components and cable management. Neptune does a good job with their setup wizards and tasks.

So as you walk around the facility look at where you would want the components mounted. It isn't difficult to mount a sheet of plywood, print out their templates, and place them such that you have an easy time doing maintenance. To include the dosing units.

Also glad to hear all is well with the overall facility.

:cool:
I didn't see this thread back in Feb but noticed it today. Glad you are able to make improvements after a setback.

It is amazing to me that your tanks were unscathed; you have a lot of "fire" in them.
