Let's have some fun today!

Thanksgiving, as you all know, is coming up Thursday and many of you may be having family over to eat and enjoy the holiday. Most of our guests will probably be "non-reefing" people so you never know how they will respond, what will catch their attention first or what they will say! Of course being passionate about our aquariums we're going to want to point out some cool coral or fish to them and want them to focus on certain particulars in our tank so what will you tell them?

1. What do you think your Thanksgiving guests will say first when they see your aquarium?

2. What will you bring to their attention first that you think they are going to be interested in?

When are you going to clean the glass?

Let's go eat turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving. We cant gather but you all are welcome to drop by and help out with a little magic sponge action while we talk reef!

Nothing, all my family lives on the East coast and I’m in Colorado. My boyfriend’s family wouldn’t show even if invited and we are not going over there due to COVID. Ugh.

Will be doing a wc on turkey day

My daughter and her Girlfriend are the only ones ever here for holidays. They watch my tanks when we travel. So this year ill hear....

"why arent the lights on yet" My reply " BRS Hybrid 4 month cycle. lights come on next week"

My tank is behind the dining room table, and viewable from living and dining rooms. so its hard to not see it.

I’m not having guests over this year, but I usually hear:

“are those things alive?“ when they see my coral. And

”you should get a Dory” because none of my guests ever like my wrasses :rolleyes:

But my sump crab usually interests them.
