Nice!!! Thanks for sharing !! I’m only on page 12 so far :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:
Hmmmm…rundown of the thread :thinking-face:
long story short:

Frank, aka @fishguy242 ,introduced himself…had just bought a house(when I first met him)…he then showed pics of a tank on dollie’s, that barely fit on the front porch, much less his dining room/bedroom/billiards room???

next day…:rolling-on-the-floor-laughing:
Seriously…next day… :oops:… he’s removing a window in his basement to get a12’, seriously TWELVE FEET LONG, acrylic tank in there…

Fast forward…

and boom…it was like the Big Bang…there was water, rocks and corals, really serious…that was the second day….

Fast forward again…

Frank, aka @fishguy242 , just in case you have forgotten who we are talking about, has 3 tanks currently running in his basement…THE 12’ tank…frankentank(it’s a don’t ask don’t tell situation so don’t ask) :rolling-on-the-floor-laughing:…and as of here recently he has started up a nem tank…maybe:cool:

in the midst of ALL that…

people have come and gone, argued and fought, kissed and made up…maybe gotten stabbed…again :zany-face:

but what you really have here, is the best group of family and friends(for those not quite at cronie level ;))..

we’re always gonna be here for each other

so smoke up, drink up …stick around and enjoy the show, leave your feeling at home, it might get hurt once in a while…it happens…suck it up and keep truckin’ or move on ;)

Ehh…almost forgot… TACOS AND TEQUILA …every day

That's why I've got an arrow crab in the sump.

She's also hilarious fighting his shed...

That's why I have one in there. I don't worry about throwing my hands in there and turning the Chaeto at all.

Good morning/afternoon all, wish I had more time for catching up and my own updates but I'll be very busy at work today...

Just for the record, is it officially "crony" or "cronie" singularly? I already know plural is "cronies". ;)

...looks like official dictionaries only have "crony" but urban dictionary has "cronie"...
I like "cronie" better, both for look and context, so I'll probably stick with that spelling.
