There isnt much I enjoy in husbandry more than target feeding LPS. The SPS guys are lazy and dont know what they're missing. Idk, I'm a geek.

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:

Flipped on the light at 530 am in the living room (soft yellow light) to check on the dendros like I always do before work.

Found the fox in full defense mode.

I just saw this and came here to post it to your BT. But how convenient you are here.

I believe I could fit my truck and wife’s suv in our living room. Excuse all the furniture still piled up in front of the 10 wide slider that slides into the wall.
