Amazing. I was born in the same year that you started your tank. Your tank may outlive me!

Thank you for your service in Vietnam. My dad was a field surgeon for the South. He spent his lifetime treating vets as a spinal cord surgeon. He is now retired from the VA, but I owe him and guys like you for the life that I have today.

I'm with you a 100%! I do the same routine every time I get any fish as per what you've already been doing for centuries :p
I don't check salinity or temperature just temp acclimate 10 minutes then poor a coffee cup of tank water in bag wait 10 more minutes then dump. I am not as old as your tank but I haven't lost any fish this way either.

All those must have been better than tuffa rock we used to use Paul.
I setup a quarantine/observation tank with some tuffa and crushed coral from my last tank. I fiquered the fish would like it better than a PVC pipe.

Been lugging that stuff around for the past twenty years. The tank was fish only with reverse flow undergravel. Still lugging around the tank as well. A 55 gallon All-glass, it's currently sitting in the garage.

Keeping the quarantine/observation tank up is no longer an option (really don't have room for it), so my next fish will be going straight into the display.

Currently fishless, so I'm not sure what it achieved anyway.

Those fish look a little lonely.
