Nice addition!
Thanks don.

Ya I get it... I am only doing coral that I feel can be grown and flipped down the line. If I cant make money on it I wont buy it anymore. Hopefully i can turn some profits to help finance the move.

Love the new addition. :)
I thought of u and @Fudsey when I had 6 to choose from. None of the options came close to the ones you all had. So I had to settle for this one ;)

No Worries @living_tribunal

Just don't give Rich any of your corals, or they'll wind up in his sump... :p
Keith is still buuty hurt over his gsp rock I think. I'm waiting for the decorator crab to get some growing on its shell. I need to go buy some cheap zoa frags and let him go crazy with the decor.
Sweet! Gotta keep that lobo happy;)
That's my story and I'm rolling with it! :D

Luckily never heard from the job. Got a day off. Unpaid, but it is what it is for now.

I'll check up on notifications in a few. Doing chores etc... and I just rescaped... I think there's plenty of space for things to hide. Tried the 1/3rds method. Not feelin it.

Love this forum. Thanks for all the tips! ;Hilarious

I decided to try my hand at some fish shots... got lucky on a few. this is 1hr into ramp. Just blues and purples.

FTS morning sunrise, the pink is from the fuge lights, which stay on an hour past first light to maintain pH.

I took the pillars I built and stuck them between the frag racks. It creates a peep hole/crack... and the "big 3" always take turns checking me out through it:
