    It is both a blessing and a curse to have a LFS so close. The site looks really nice. I am going to have to keep going back there.

    ok I went by the new lfs. Its still in the beginning stages but its looks like a nice place. They werent going to open so soon but people kept knocking on the door so they decided what the heck. The guy I talked to was nice seemed like he knew what he was doing. He said the the owner is going to cal. to cherry pick stock from the wholesalers. They are going to be doing that at least once a month so should have some real nice stuff. Over all first impression is good would have liked to have seen the online inventory but that is kept at a different location not open to the public.

    I wish I had something new to show ya. I had to spend my coral fund on a hot water heater so now it will be at least a month before I can get anything new. Maybe when the nano build gets going I will have money to get stuff for both tanks. I figure by the time the 10gal cycles I might have been able to save enough to buy a package deal from one of the e-sellers.

    What's funny, is that he's serious.

    I've met him. He's for real.

    Whats funny to me in this thing is for 5 days we didnt have hot water. I did the dishes heating water on the stove and filled the bath a few times for the kids and myself also. It does work ,takes forever, but does work. Was kinda funny I found a new use for my turkey fryer pot. Guess my red neck is showing. lol
