    Looks great! Don't you wish the high end zoas like that utter chaos reproduced as fast as the 'normal' zoas? One of my first basic zoas has a new baby almost every 2 weeks while my wammin' watermelon has only had 2 in the last 3 months.

    Placed an order to replace my actinic t5 bulbs with coral +. Also got a 360X controller, and a 300watt titanium finnex to replace my neotherm in my 90. I don’t want to be another neotherm explosion victim, 9 months was long enough rolling the dice.
    Looking forward to this shipment!

    I forget what this coral is, but it needs to see the spotlight, it’s the most neglected coral in my tank, it’s hard to see due to being behind my controller stand. It is a cool one though. Super cheap little $10 frag awhile back, growing up to be something sweet.

    That was more fun than the jack hammer to cut through the asphalt and concrete driveway. That building use to be the garage and I turned it into a finished schoolhouse for the kids.

    Looking forward to those frags!

    I am going Saturday morning to adopt a couple clowns and pickup a mini colony of JF Star Gazers as well. The clowns will go in the frag tank for observation for a month.

    Haha. Dad!! I love doing things. I’m not great at them but I get better each time I do them . I lay my own tile, plumb, dry wall. Generally pick a room per year in this old farm house to redo. My dad was able to do all those things and taught all 4 of us. At any one time he was a semi pro football player, truck driver, city cop, warehouse worker, handyman you name it. Never had much money he used to drive a car until we couldn’t fix it anymore then we would push him to the top of the hill and he would drift down to the junk yard because you got 50 bucks instead of 25 if you drive it across the threshold. Then we would all run down the hill and we all would walk around this town lookin for a car to buy for 50 bucks that we could fix up.
    So to this day I don’t pay anyone to do something I can do myself and have the desire still.

    The old homestead
