I can see the humor in it, I don't think he meant it in a way as hurtful as everyone seems to be interpreting it.

 

I almost want to say that people can't take a joke on this site :(

 

But then again I can see how rude/mean that comment is

 

So I am not sure how to feel, but thumbs up to the toolbox :)

71 vw where do you live? I think I might have a 30 long you can have, if you live close to Modesto. I have to look in my mother's garage. Let me know am sure I can come up with something!

 

Well it is Christmas. If Fish or anyone else can come up with a tank for VDub, I'll match it with brand new test kits, hydrometer, heater, and a bevy of other hard goods.

 

For Pete's sake, let's get this guy set up with some basics. A grown man shouldn't have to pine for a slice of reef heaven.

 

Teal, Robster, and every other modder here, start digging through your stuff. I know you all have a little extra something lying around.

I'm in Cactusland aka Phoenix, Arizona. I'll help out any way I can, including shipping. I'll also check with people in our fish club to see what extras they might be sitting on.

She presented me with a small box. It had hand-made little coupons in it. It was for stupid things like favorite meals, getting out of having to go to some inane social event. Watching a preferred TV program when one of her reality shows was on.

 

Setting aside the present itself for a second, what it showed me was how well she was in tune with all my idiosincracies. I was touched. Still brings tears to my eyes when I think about it all these years later.

 

The box sits on my bookcase in my office to this day. I never did redeem a single coupon. The gift was too pure of heart.

 

Mind if I borrow some of those coupons??? :lol:

 

 

 

I got a set of PC light ballasts, If you need one its a JBJ dual 65w. Straight pin, No bulbs though...you can have it if want no charge for anything.

As I posted earlier, I could possibly take that for a joke, except anytime ive seen the guy post it has been a smart-aleck comment or degrading someone... he's a forum troll. -_-

 

Let me know anything you may need 71vwbug, if I can give you a hand in any way I'll try. :)

 

I have some acrylic rods also if youd like them to tie your LR together so you never have an avalanche in your tank. :happy:

o man not another troll. lol its ok im sure he wasnt meaning no harm...

 

thanks for offering the help

 

which is better rods or epoxy?

I epoxied the rods in there..... I like the rods because if I ever had to rip my tank apart for any reason I can still do that, and when I had to put it back together I would have no problems because everything just slides back together.... This gave me the most of both worlds in I wouldnt have any rockslides if I got a crazy fish who liked to knock stuff over, and I can still break down the tank.... I would hate to epoxy the entire structure together and have to take out one huge piece of LR to break down the tank....

 

I have pictures of it in my "Got my BC29 today thread..."
