My magfloats have done a good job. Wasnt aware there were others worth the money. Itd ne nice to have a thin one to get behind rocks easier.

Seems all is going okay with you. Glad to see you adding new stuff. I retired from the forum to deal with family emergencies and frankly I was getting tired of arguing with so many on this forum about the simplest things.
I have seen spectacular growth in the last few months, so I guess I do know something about what I am doing and have enjoyed the calm, as I hate to argue.

Added two full grown engineer gobies (yes I know they aren't a real goby, or blenny) and have really enjoyed them. Keep up the good work Dary.

I know Greg its hard but I stay away from all the controversial topics and just stick with the people I know it makes it a lot more fun instead of frustrating

So Dary when does the new scrubber come in nothing worse then waiting for that fed ex truck on a side note I did go onto the mp site and got my powerheads figured out tricky little buggers but they work great they better not start flowing backwards like the koras

Sad to see you go Gregcoyote, you've taught me a lot. Hope everything is well with you family now. Engineer gobies are really cool, you'll love them

Whenever the hammer head comes, tell us how you like it. Im now tempted to get one lol.

Hey Greg,...welcome home !!! ,..I totally agree with Ryan ,...sometimes it can be a little frustrating ,...I too try and stick with the folks that I know and can learn from and also have a little fun with too,..There's certain members here who are really respected ,..and you are one of them,.Anyone who has ever seen your tank can attest to the fact that you know your stuff!!!... Don't let people get you down,.. You and Doug are like The real honest to god teachers in the hard part of town trying to educate a bunch of misfits,...you're going to have a lot of ups and downs,.but in the long run you are our teachers and .you help more people out than you know,...hang around ,..I'll buy you a beer,..or better yet,..ryan will buy the first round,...it's his turn ,..

Just got the hammerhead in ,.. Sometimes it's nice to live in San Diego, when the supply house is in Los Angeles ,...ordered yesterday morning and it's here today!...., I purposely let my front glass " go" for a couple of days just so I could try the hammerhead out realistically ,...first impressions,.,money well spent ,.. Very strong magnets and the algae buildup was removed very easily in just a pass over....it's a costly little device $60 give or take but it rocks,... The replacement pads are about $6/ 7.00 for about a dozen of 'em..... No complaints on this end.

I guess it is my turn lol sometime possibly next year I will sail down the west coast and you can take me sport fishing as I've never done it and the first rounds on me cheers

So Dary how about an updated picture of your tank I'd like to see how your corals are doing I may go the led route I just have an oddesea metal halide and I am thinking about spending a good amount on a light fixture as I saved almost 350$ on my powerheads I figure I deserve it(wife may not agree haha)
