Tank got rearranged a bit to make room for the new torch... it needs at least 6" around it clear to be safe.

It was open a bit, will wait till tomorrow to try pics.

Gorgonian is in. And I brought all my other gorgs up from the fuge. Now that theres a ton of macro in there, I figured I would bring the coral up on top. I'm tired of blowing the algae slime off them every couple days. Kenya tree and gsp rock of worms are both staying in the fuge for now.

Mixing up 15g of rodi to top off ATO resevoir. And then 15g of fresh salt mix for the start of my bi-weekly 10% water change schedule I am on.

Tough ending for your Pedals this year.... You like the Suban trade or puzzled?? Personally i feel like it was a good move for them leaving my feelings for him aside.
Yeah,
We had to let PK go because Kyle Turris contract is a bust.
Hung under the cap. If our GM did things right we would kept PK and picked up Duchene, but Turris is a 6 million a year cap hit.

6mil a year for 23 points certainly hurts and nobody's going to take that contract right now. Hopefully he stays healthy and provides something.
PK’s production has dropped off the past couple years though too and losing that contract had to happen to free them up to maneuver. Duchene’s a nice addition and you guys have depth on the Blue line. Time will tell! When I'm not rooting for the Bruins Im rooting for the Preds!

Thanks!!

PK was pretty much a salary dump to pick up Duchene.

(lol)
Sure hope Turris picks up his game.

Was hilarious. Great family Keith has.

Thank You!!

Thank you so much Freddie. It's been a curve. But what a feeling of accomplishment i get everytime I walk into my living room now remember when I found it in a barn with oil, gas cans, and a snowblower motor block sitting on the bottom of the stand.

Pretty amazing what some perseverance and a year can do.
