So that didn't take long huh?

You guys should know I can't keep a secret from my buds.

So I ordered it on the 12th. I was supposed to get a notification from "the carrier" with a delivery date.
"free" home delivery, that cost $15 and change LOL...whatever... it was the best price around.

So they said 7-10 working days for delivery. I waited, waited, complained to some of you LOL...waited.

Decided to shoot them an email today., They send me the phone number to call, they in turn tell me it shipped on the 15th and is on time??? :huh: also gave me a tracking number. I check it and it seems the tank has been sitting at a nearby terminal since Tuesday the 20th! :rant: :angry:

Ok, so after almost having it set up for a Monday delivery my wife took control, called again and arranged for us to pick up tonight. omgomgomg :happydance: omgomgomg :happydance:

Yes, at times hers are larger than mine. That's all I will say on that subject LOL, let's move on shall we?

OK, We pick it up at a Fedex terminal. On a pallet, three boxes ( starter kit, tank, and stand wrapped in plastic. Looks good , so they forklift that sucker onto the back of my 1996 GMC pickup and home I go. SLOOOWWLY that is.

In NJ at about 5:30, slowly is pretty much the only way anyhow....... <_<

As of right now, stand is together and the tank is sitting upon it and life is good.

For those who have not followed this big goofball before, this tank will come to be from two others I am taking down. My 12 gallon Nano cube, and my 20L prop tank. Busy weekend ahead of me and I love every minute of it. I will try to get some pics up soon, but you have seen them before I'm sure.

point is that before you post you should figure out what the ethos of the thread is. you tweens come in like a herd of horny goats humping every thread in sight, then get surprised when people try to beat you with bamboo canes.

Oh and yes, when you give up sex, you have some OTHER issues, not a reefing addiction. Priorities! (Sex, reefing, alcohol, everything else takes a back seat ;) )

RSM is such a crappy tank. You are not welcome in our club. You return tank now and go get biocube like the rest. K-Bye.

Yes, I am starting to realize this now....

You are not welcome in our club.


Nor do I wish to be.
Besides, your equipment can't even drill straight and you smell funny.

You return tank now and go get biocube like the rest. K-Bye.


Thankx for the tip, but after following the last one........ :slap:
