Corals...or a live replacement heart?? Those are the only things I'd put a seatbelt on. Oh an the kid... And maybe the wife. Lol. Joke.


Oh please. The Apple store opened at 10am, I was out of there at 10:13am with the first version iPad they made.

Nice tank so far. I'm also interested in a good place to buy coral. My initial thought is Mr. Coral but I've heard very mixed reviews.

What an ingenious hook up for the LEDs. I like the rock work too. Very nice. :)

turns out the bag of chemipure exploded and obviously all the carbon went into the display. Needless to say, I had a lot of cleanup to do... i mean that s*** was everywhere! :angry:

after lots of headaches and mouthfulls of saltwater, i seem to have cleaned all of if up. zoas didn't get affected at all but the gsp is kinda pissed.

ehhhhh <_<
