    Hey NBR,

    I was sorry to learn of your near demise. :O

    As a fellow rider (street and dirt), I feel for those who have gotten up close and personal with dirt or asphalt. :( I'm glad to hear you're bouncing back and finding the time and desire to engage in your other passion too. ;)

    Memories may be slightly over-rated and sometimes worth losing as new and sometimes better ones can be experienced. Glad you're on the mend. As it's said "Keep the rubber side down and the shinny side up." 0:)

    Tomorrow, I'm off for a local mini rally with our club (Norcal Voyagers) that's up here from Manteca and Fresno. They generally ride conservatively, so I can feel comfortable riding with them: The Top of the Hill Club, well that's another story. :steve:

    These folks pictured are part of the TOHC. Maybe you know some of them? They are out of Mission Motor Cyles in Daly City, CA.

    Be well.

    Good to hear you're okay now, Tom. Just one of those reasons why I sold my R1. It's just too fast for me. Just let me know when your tank is ready. I'll cut a frag of the corals I got from you.

    I did put a frag of my meteor shower. And that plug looks familiar to me.

    Thank you Perry.

    You are a terrific Fragger, H) as it hasn't given me any difficulty and its polyps open for feeding which makes me a very happy reefer.
    Looking forward to meeting you at one of our meetings. :)

    Best,
    Joel

    Thanks guys, I took 3/4 of the rocks out of the main tank already. so 3/4 of the tank is bared. I also did a water change and vacuumed the sand heavily. I'll do another water change in 2 weeks and vacuum the sand and sift it again before adding the new rocks to the bare side. The old live rocks are cleaned and sitting in the 85 gal refugium.

    Perry, thanks for the offer man .... I don't think my tank is ready for sps yet so it will be a little while. Once everything is dialed back in then everything will be ready again. I am looking forward to fill my tank with sps like before so I am very motivated.

    Joel, I am too afraid to get on a motor bike because because I love speed too much, but those are cool looking bike you got there ... lol

    Nice contrast with the open areas. Great investment time to get such nice results.

    Love the rock shelves. It's hard to find nice flat rock pieces sometimes.
