Recently just received a package from a buddy of mine in Santa Barbara (said SD in the video... oops) and got to thinking about just unboxing in general...

What excites you most about the unboxing? The new pieces for your tank? To see how nice or big the pieces truly are? Or is it the mystery box you snagged from the retailer?

To me I always get excited especially for any mystery box to see what I got.. wanted to reach out and see what all of you go through whenever you are unboxing your coral order, even if you know what is coming the excitement can be a lot and not knowing what it looks like in person can bring up the suspense!

Hope you all had a Happy Easter (if you celebrate) or just a happy Sunday!

This would make a great poll! I may use it tomorrow in my QOTD! Ha!

For me the color of the Frags get me going most of all!

My dog too. He can hear the truck long before we can actually see in up the road. Crazy.

I feel like a kid again at christmas or birthdays or even easter. Any time we got fun gifts to open. Even if I knew what they were. Love seeing the sizes compared to pictures and colors once settled.

Sounds like I’m the only one stressed. I’ve had the FedEx driver mark it as “delivery attempted” when I was standing outside and never saw a truck.

To me it’s like the excitement of expecting a puppy on Christmas morning, but knowing there’s a chance it’s dead in the box.
