The lights still aren't here!! Yarg! stupid slow postal service...

 

I spent a few hours in my "workshop" yesterday and produced a hood for this bad boy. When the lights get here I can wire up the sockets, install the reflector, and stain the whole thing... I'll try to post pics soon.

Still no lights! I HATE FED_EX! They had the delevery date at the 26. I checked on the 26th, and they moved it to the 27th. Now that the 27th is gone, the delivery date still says the 27th despite the fact that the package hasn't been scanned out of the wherehouse in benicia, CA!

 

YArg!!!!!!!!!! Anyhow, drilling the tank and installing the overflow probably tomorow. The hood will just have to wait...

 

 

 

EDIT: ARGHHHH now they have taken the delivery date off of their site entierly, and the package still hasn't left benicia!

Yeah, I'm on the wrong computer for that :( and photobucket is sporadic about what they auto-resize. The snail pics were taken at the same settings as the tank pix, but they were the only ones that got re-sized. *shrug*

There we go! I found a setting in photobucket that lets me resize the pics online! YAY!!! It's not as nice as photoshop, but it works... :happy:

Ya, where do you guys go for frags? My personnal favorite place is Dolphin Pet Village - its a nice large store with great customer service. Price is a little high, but I feel good about supporting them.

Dolphins marine section is lacking but they do have a lot of small frags unlike most other places in the bay ( that I've been too).

Yeah, I like Dolphin, but their prices are a bit steep. I also go to a place called sun aquarium. They don't have much, but sometimes there are small frags, and the guy will sell them to ya for cheap. There's a nice store up in hayward too, but that's a heck of a drive.

"The Reptile Room", right? Ya, that place is pretty nice, but imo not worth the drive.

I'm liking Atlantis Aquarium these days for frags, and Alameda Aquatics is good too but far and hell away. I've been to Sun Aquarium and your right he has almost nothing but sometimes gets some cool frags and he is super cheep.
