You know put some ketchup, brown sugar, hot sauce, crushed pepper flakes and you all set for NC. How’s your slaw recipe?:D
Oh, man! You got me thinking of fried chicken, rice and beans with cole slaw!

I am realizing as I watch the feeding how nicely your tank has progressed since you trimmed and adjusted the corals. I tend to like corals grown all together, but your tank shows me how nice it is to prominently feature each colony’s texture and color. Really looking fantastic.

Your dogs makes me miss my boy. Nice coloration and markings too. Thanks for sharing.
Your welcome. They are just like little kids! Lol

I am laughing out loud on the train watching those pups. Tank is looking amazing.
Thanks Brian, they can be so laid-back most of the time. The brindle and white is my female Remi. She's daddy's girl. Follows me everywhere. She dominants Milo. He's a big baby. Lol
I should have said " want to go for a ride" and they would have stopped, looked at me and headed to the door. They love car rides! Lol

The pups are so stinking funny! The tank is still one of my favorite ever! Just beautiful!
Agree!

When Don said the two Flipper Heads, I had to pause the video, for just a min.... ;Hilarious

@Flippers4pups
Don,
Thanks for sharing both videos.

This is awesome. Late to the party, but wish I had the space for a clean setup like this
Thank you! Basement sump comes in handy.


Speaking of, today I need to clean out the salt can of vinegar water, transfer some RO/DI water and make some saltwater for a water change. During the water change remove some more sand from the back side of my rock work and replace it with new sand. Need to service my return pump, take it apart and clean the calcium deposits from the impeller and housing.

That sounds like a full day to me!

This build is amazing! Love all of the diy! I still feel like I’m just getting started. I hope you don’t mind if I reference this for a little inspiration!
Oh by all means do so. Any questions you have, I'm here.
