    You should move back to Austin. I didn't mind driving down from Ft Worth, but Ohio is a bit much. Lol

    Looks good! Where at in Monroe is the shop going to be? I work in Lebanon so needless to say it is going to be quite dangerous to be able to go to a store with coral on my lunch break lol.

    I'm happy to see some locals on here!!
    It's at the corner of route 63 and Main Street. So if you were traveling north on 75 and took the Monroe exit, you would turn left. Travel about two miles and I'll be down on the left.

    Looks great! @Reef Pets where did you get those aquaculture tanks? I've always wanted one for a frag tank :)

    I put all thread on the back side but I don't think it would sway. The move is very gradual.

    How do you go about getting a new system up and running as far as "maturing" goes? Do you worry about maturing?

    I don't worry about maturing at all, it will come in time. I have 3 different systems in the shop plus the fish system and all are doing well and SPS is growing. You can use live bacteria to help with the cycle.

    I'll be open by then for sure. If I'm not open that day I'll certainly open up for you.
