Day 3 scape looks good. It'll give you some nice places to add some corals. I'd say keep it!!!

Haha that's awesome that you got to see it. My reef lobster likes carry frags to the opposite side of the tank. He's nocturnal though so I just wake up to 3 of 4 frags in odd places. :lol:

I didn't see a game lost by a kicker. I saw a game where a player dropped a wide open pass to win the game. Then a kicker missed a kick to tie, but he should have never been in the situation.

 

Flacco would have choked in OT anyway.

 

Go Jets!

 

Nice tank btw.

I think we can all agree that a team wins or loses as a whole, I just thought it was a perfect contrast to how important that position is.

If I was the kicker, I'd blame lee Evans. Then say, if I made it anyway, Flacco would have been too shakey in OT, right Ed?

So far he is very active even during the day and I named him dozer since he always bulldozing the sand lol
