Good Morning, Can we do topics?........OK?...... today is LIVE Rock day. ;Watching
I'll play.
Another wall of rock is born.


I am a tech, not an artist. Cant change who you are. I throw it in. Move a few pieces and it looks fine to me.
When the last box you open has the biggest pieces. Oh well.

I got rocks. They were formerly live and sat dry for a few years. They have recently been cured and are now sitting dry in a Rubbermaid tub waiting to be cultured and to rejoin the world of live rock.

Once was a co-worker “accidentally” on a subway platform. Once was a random teenager on the street. Both times took about 15-20 minutes to recover unwatered sight.
Had a bear spray canister go off and shoot a stream onto my right arm. My crew members backed up immediately and we're coughing and I could not figure out why....until my arm stared getting warm. Even after several launderings the shirt would cause a burning sensation but I never inhaled....remind you of a past politician?

I remember getting 4000lbs of live rock and having to seed it. The smell could knock a buzzard off a carcass at 300 paces! Good times, good times. I think the police sent a cadaver dog by the shop to be sure I was not a suspicious character.....not really just sounded good. Have a great day all.

I wish the builders association would get together and require a nailer above and around windows knowing curtain rods will be installed. My wife likes to pretend shes an Interior designer, that means new curtains & rods. Then the drywall blows out and I have to patch and repaint the wall :mad:

BTW [email protected] Quint Hope all is well

More like a mountain of rock :) How did the Tampa rock show up?..You happy with it?
With shipping I paid $6.66 a pound. I am very very happy with it. 6 boxes with insulation quadruple bagged in water.
This rock did not die so It did not smell. They shipped it at 10am and I had it in the tank by 10pm.
Beats the heck out of paying 8-14 dollars a pound at the LFS. The rock itself looks like it should and not somethig I dug up in the yard and put in a vat of saltwater for 2 months.




Saw multiple tiny crabs, a shrimp, whelks and 2 bad pods. I am sure we didn't get them all.
We only killed the pods. Lots of other stuff. I know most of it want make it over time but it is fun for now. Bivalves, serpent stars, hermits, snails, worms, a lot of stuff went in last night. Many I have no idea what they are.

Throw them in and don't worry about them. Then go out to dinner and try the squid. :p
Hey Paul, Have you tried the flat Squid they now serve at those Few-Few restaurants?
