    I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t let that guy leave until you make sure their is no cracks. Packaging looks iffy if that.

    Gotta love the #reefcleaners products. I also love that there is an actual human being behind the customer service. I got some base rock and couldn't be happier.

    I'm excited to see this set up!

    another OH IO reefer! Thanks for checking out the build! I'm not 100% sure on the barnacles either.

    Worst case, it sits on the table and holds cigars!

    Thanks for tagging along erky.
