    The star of the show is always Sunset. And his Turkey Servjng Platter Anemone that he guards with passion. I got so nervous with my hands in the tank it was like tension u could cut with a knife! Just waiting for the strike. ;Hilarious luckily he let me slide today. :)

    You can feel his cold icy stare the entire time ur in front of the tank. Its hilarious.

    Overall a great visit. Thanks for a slice of the red gorg and Kenya frag buddy! They are all dipped, glued, and in the fuge. :cool:

    Until next time sir,
