Why hello, everyone! Why does Maria abandon us all the time?! What's with the lack of updates?! I have no excuses. However! What I do have is a handful of progress shots on the amazing drop off I stole took on, which you'll all recognize from @metrokat's A+ thread. It turns out when you take out the rocks and corals and fish and water and lighting, these tanks are just super coralline-calcified and make your movers family complain about the smell every time they have to go near the glass. Exhibit A: Then you get the tank moved over into its new location! Exhibit B: Then you run a nice little vinegar-tapwater bath to turn all that coralline into measly film! Exhibit 😄 And ta-dah! Suddenly you're looking at a sparkly tank that's ready for saltwater! Metrokat and I got some gorgeous rocks from Dan at Gulf Live Rock (the dude never fails, oh my goodness), and while we waited I played around with some Stax rocks: And while I still have to play with the rockwork, and the tank is a hot mess on the inside.. It's my hot mess, and everything from the Fusion 20 will be in here soon enough! I'm super excited to see the local fish nerds at RAP this weekend!! And I'll link a couple of my IG updates in this thread so that you guys can meet Bob the Builder, the adorable mantis shrimp that hitchhiked his way into my tank - and into my heart! 😍 (Cheesy, I know. I had to.)
