Not yet. The big tank was all I could manage between all the trips back and forth. This one will be reset after next week. Nemo and crew are in a temporary tank for the time being.

Soooooo, there was a change of plans:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The *All New* Long and Dirty Down South

During the move down south, the two GBG’s died. Not sure what happened but I suspect the lack of live food in the temporary tank took its toll. 
 

I didn’t want to set this tank back up just for Nemo because I was worn out and tired of making that drive over and over so I put him in the 75 with the other assholes……. He fit right in.

Same equipment as before with the addition of the Current USA Serene background light. The film they send with it is trash so I used frosted window film from Lowe’s for the back.

Zelda digs it.

This will be a Florida only tank. Rock to come soon.

I’m not sure yet. I only just decided to go “Florida only” and I don’t have a solid plan yet.   Just wanted to get it started and I’ll figure out the rest while it’s cooking.

The other issue is that there's only 2 tank manufacturers in the USA now and I think those 2 assholes are getting together and saying lets screw people good. 2 years ago I ordered a load of tanks and they were $12,000 cheaper than they are now. Keep your shit up folks and people won't be able to afford the hobby. I'm going to look elsewhere for tanks now. Hell, when they would run the $1/gal tank sales I was going to all the stores and buying out their 40 breeders for the shop and drilling them myself.

 

You can get what you need right in your back yard. There are gobs of stuff to be collected right from shore including , you know, the calcium rock. Not gonna say the l*ve r*ck because that wouldn't be legal. 😉 Robert Straughan wrote several books on collecting, they gave me tips on collecting in The Keys. You can probably pick them up on eBay or from Thrift Books for next to nothing. An assortment of larger nets is a must have as well, minnow buckets for holding your critters.

Once I get settled in here and learn the places and the rules I’ll be all over that.
 

Right now I have to concentrate on finding a j-o-b. 😂
