Reborn being out of stock.
FYI, it’s in stock now!

What grinds my gears? Not other people’s reaction to my hobby. I really don’t care. I also don’t care about forum behavior. I mostly get irritated by stuff going on in my tank: equipment failing, livestock problems, having to deal with a reef issue when I’d rather be watching TV.

- The rediculous prices being charged for coral
- The tiny fish and coral received from an auction
- Shipping delays with little compensation for delay or loss

Lol I remember my FIL trying to explain to me how silly it was having my sump and ATO in the same room with a dehumidifier. No Sherlock, if the dehumidifier doesn’t run the entire basement smells like cat pee. Mind your own business.
lol experts!

Vendor Facebook auctions I hate because I’m not on Facebook and don’t care to be and I don’t want to create a burner account. Just make your own website for auctions or use Ebay!
Could go for some strawberry rhubarb with lots of whipped cream right about now
TF ... Why you gotta go there?? Where am I gonna get that on a Friday night?!

When told, should be left in the ocean. If Stony corals were left in the ocean, we wouldn't be here today, successfully keeping most alive.

Hey since you are revolutionizing the hobby and keeping them alive, there is nothing wrong with keeping them. It is unfortunate to see so many people struggle and fail with these guys when they are so hard to keep.

When the kid at the LFS questions what you are doing with livestock, inverts, equipment etc. when you’ve had reef tanks longer than he/she have been alive.......
+1... I know they are trying to help but when you get old you get mean (like Paul b... Just kidding Paul) and don't have the patience anymore.

Ordering from a company with terrible inventory control... You order several items and later get an email that most have been shipped but that one thing you REALLY needed is actually out of stock and they refund you for it!!! Fix your inventory or ship it later when in stock for free!

Sometimes I am a little sour when I read questions that are easily answered if researched for all of five minuets. Like cycling a tank. Pretty straight forward stuff imo. But I jever beat anyone up for it.

Out of stock items does stink. I spent about an hour today searching for 36” ati blue plus bulbs. Couldn’t find any in stock. Ill try again next week
ive been checking the past 3 weeks... good luck!
