I’ve noticed you asked several times but never got an answer.

The video kept saying it was private so I couldn't watch it, then it changed to scheduled so I couldn't watch it, now it's gone so I can't watch it. :grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes: I guess I can't watch it.

I know. :) I was just hoping to congratulate my friends. I wasn't sure if they announced any winners during the Livestream.

I’m sure no one would expect them to answer while preparing for a horrible storm.
I think Tim was just hoping someone else on the thread saw the video.

I also checked on their YouTube page and don’t see the stream for this giveaway. All of the older ones are still there though.

They do have a really cool video of them feeding a scoly that makes me really want a scoly. I would maybe get one if not for being afraid that I’d kill it since many of the fleshy lps corals don’t do well in my tank.

That's my fear with so many different corals. Never knowing how they're going to do...

A couple of those straps look twisted. you're gonna want to flatten them out so they are strong enough.

Sounds good! Keep the roof on! My parents were home during a tornado in Alabama and it lifted their roof.

I had always been told to make one twist in the strap to reduce vibrations.
So I just googled it and from what I’ve read making one or two twists in the strap only makes a tiny difference in strength and will cut down on vibration. Apparently having a knot in the line reduces the strength by around 50% which I also did not know.

That is also just from me quickly googling I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard to find contradicting information.
