    Thanks for the kind words - update is in order. My Dad passed away in July after a long illness. During his final weeks, he was in the hospital and finally hospice. During that time, I was away for the better part of a couple of weeks. Had a crash and lost a ton of stuff - all of my Acans, most of my Millie and more. Tank has been slowly recovering, I've avoided adding anything and just giving the tank time to settle and run through the recovery cycle.

    I'll get some new pics up soon.

    I'm very sorry to hear that Jester. Sorry for your loss.

    Glad the tank is recovering.

    Started a new frag tank - using a 100G stock tank and plasma lighting...out in the garage, because my wife said no to a stock tank in the house!!

    Getting things started:

    Awesome tank John. Amazing progress.
     
  6. I feel a swap @ Johnny's place coming on!!! I mean, who honestly needs that many frags in their garage :) !

    All of the frags are from the 150G - the stuff that made it through the crash is still growing like crazy. There are multiples of each on the racks...

    Thinned out quite a bit, I just seeded a couple of newbies. I love the look on their face when you hand them a half dozen frags and say, "Here you go, now you have some SPS!"

    But I'm always game for a frag swap, but it would be a bit of a drive for my BAR family!

    Thanks! Funny. I just fragged the heck out of those montis - Jim has a chunk of the confusa. LMK if you want frags of either the purple rim or confusa, I can bring them to the meeting. A bit browned out from growing in the shadows but both are quick growers (at least under plasmas)

    Thanks Jess, there are a few others but I'm pretty sure mine is the oldest. I started with Beta. Erosion lights three or four months before the first production models.

    Hoping to make it by your place after the meeting, have some room for goodies and would love to see your shop!
