    Wow, it's like no one on Living Reefs has a job. Here it is, 1:00 pm my time, and the whole "usual gang" is online posting. GET BACK TO WORK ALL YOU SLACKERS!!! Reef tanks don't pay for themselves, you know.

    As if I need to explain myself to YOU but, I get off from work at 3:30 EST, but I was on here earlier cause I was taking a break. We have been hitting temps in the upper 90s and lower 100s for the last 3 weeks, and it's not a "dry" heat like you have.
