Here's a Hawaii photo for you of my dive partner (wife) in a lava tube full of silversides and my flashlight with a lion fish on it. Shot off the big island. I haven't been back in over 14 years and am due for a trip myself. Sure hope everything works out for you and yours.

I'm sorry all this happened. My best wishes are with your family. Hopefully you can use those tickets again soon, and I hope things work out ok with the future court proceedings.

This whole thing has blossomed very nicely into a total nite mare... The other nite out of the blue my boss and one of my co workers showed up at my door unexpectedly with a 12 pack of longboards to try and cheer me up ( it worked ... Sort of )
Decided to try and finish up my aquarium's stand by adding to it and extending it around the main door and on.., got another 10-12 days of vacation so i might use it to my advantage...help me mr wizard !!

You're showing your age Dary. Mr. Wizard was my favorite show when I was 10. Still attribute him and Apollo for my interest in science.

What would Mr. Wizard do? He would drink the beer, build the cabinet and then suck a hard boiled egg into a milk bottle.

Donald Jeffry Herbert (born Donald Herbert Kemske and better known as Mr. Wizard, July 10, 1917.

Well I decided to use this time off to my advantage ,..I've decided to extend my tanks cabinet to the front door then build a 12 inch wide and 12 foot long cabinet over the door to the other side of the living room and beyond.... So far I've made my token two trips to home depot and one trip to dixieline lumber for a total of around $200 in supplies ( so far ),...of course the beer tab may exceed the actual building material cost by the time I'm finished but after all this is my makeshift vacation .
Tank wise I decided to add a small dim able led moon light to my setup,...I know Doug doesn't like them but due to my job's nature ,I'm up and about every morning at about 2:30 to 3 am,...my tanks lights ( and usually me too) are set to go out around 6pm,..my girl friend usually comes over after the tank's shut down for the nite and is completely dark,, she always goes over and looks things over but even her bat like eyes can't see too much of what's going on ,so I decided to go ahead and get a little moonlight system rigged up so there's just enough illumination to show some colors and interest,..yesterday was the first nite and she loved the look ,...I've got it coming on just a little before the main light go out and and running for a couple of hours after that.
Ok,.my breaks over for now ,..back to the build.

I love my moon lights for the same reasons you mentioned. I have about $50 in them.

Can't wait to see the finished cabinet!

As for the moonlights that's one thing I really love about the AI lights I run on my DT. I have them on all night long (only 1% of one of the blues) from 12am to 5am & live being able too see stuff anytime day or night

A year or two back I bought a 48" true lumen led strip lighting fixture to compliment my existing led fixtures that I already had going ,,.i liked the the look so much that I bought another 48 incher ,.they are rather Pricey but they really crank out some xtra light .
So in keeping with my true lumen tradition I opted to go with two of their little 10 deep blue strips,..here again they are expensive but by using their dimmer switch you can throttle it up or Down to fine tune the look you want.
I guess there's a million ways to skin a cat but this is just the road I chose for myself.
I got a remarkably amount of stuff done today on the cabinet but my girl friend s threatening to bring some broken wooden toys over for me to Fix while I'm off on vacation.
:-/
P.s. I forgot to mention that I've been eye balling this echinophyllia chalice on one of the online web sites for the last week or two ,...today they had the chalice at about 35% off its regular price so I figured I better snag it while the getting was good,....these chalices seem to thrive in my system for reasons that only they know. ,.. So that's kinda exciting for me to be getting another addition to my little world
