Sooo. I started my venture into SW tanks not long after getting out of the Army in 1999. My first tank was a 55 gallon with an UG filter, domino damsel, panther grouper, and snowflake eel ( that I loved cause he used to eat out of my hand). My have things changed. After moving to Charlotte in 2001 I acquired another tank which was a sumped 90 gallon which was filled with LR and a Volatin Lionfish (ooooh scary). It was quite the experience and I remember that besides the lion fish, I couldn't keep anything alive. I got out of the SW game after moving to Seattle in 03 and didn't get another tank until early 2011 which was a 12gallon Nanocube which I had good luck with. Upgraded from that to a 40b a few months after, added a 29bc to the collection and all was well. A few months ago me and my fiance decided to move and I decided it'd be easier for my tanks to go to new homes, vs packing all 3 of them up to be moved to our new home with us. It wasn't long before I caught the bug again...so here it is..

So since tank was in Orlando and I'm in Tampa, we had to rent a truck. This nice black lady helped us do so.

So I got to the guys house and this is what I found

Then we hit the road

Awesome your pictures and threads are the best. No pics of the kitty cat? That camera take really nice pictures.

 

Also why is your heater in the display?

Yes, thank you. Most others say "Pit Bull"? I say, "ghetto"?

pics of the cat will arrive soon. I'm mad @ him right now so he gets no glory.

Uh, cause I have been too lazy to move it since I set everything up :furious:

Was actually thinking about doing that earlier.

I had one for years. He was 130lbs of pure stupidity lol Broke my heart to put him down. We managed to find a AB mix at a local shelter a couple years ago. Best dogs you could ever own.

Tank looks nice but your clam is a Crocea and not a Maxima. B)

Sony NEX-5RK. They go for 7 stacks, you can find a lightly used one online for 5ish though I'm sure. I want to get a macro lens for it. Then I'll really start snapping some pics. Oh and learn how to use iPhoto for anything other than moving from camera to computer, lol

Lol, yea that's out of my budget lol. I've been looking at the Canon Rebel T3s though. I just want to get better quality pictures...of my tank and my kids. I'm tired of my kids looking all wonky because the delay from my pushing the "capture" button and the actual image capture is 2+ seconds.

You didn't mix these two did you?

 

Also, how is three olives, I haven't tried it. I've become quite fond of some of the local Texas Vodkas, so I haven't ventured out too much.

This is what happened last time we drank (NYE) she gets nutty when she's drunk, I can't drink cause if I do, she wants to as well. Then she gets all violent, the dog (who loves us both dearly) doesn't put up with ANY aggression, and yeah
