It's more like he has me. His beak has been trimmed since this picture. Now that's a fun job.

Birds are a acquired taste.

I'm doing well. Anxious to start the rebuild of my fish room after 22 years, but don't want to overdo it yet. For now I just look at all this cool new equipment on the floor waiting to be installed.

Never even thought of it as a race ,..just as an diary of a tank ,.. From horrible mishaps to unbeilable successes and everything else in between .
I remember how excited I was when diatoms formed and green algae actually grew !!!

It's not a race...it acknowledgement that you are a dedicated reef keeper that likes to help others.

I'm amazed as to how much I've learned from everybody here over the years ,... I'm still just totally fascinated that I've made it this far !!
I try to never take it for granted that I have a tiny piece of the ocean in my living room ,.. Really truly mind boggling !! We don't win all the battles that's for sure but by truly listening to others who know so much more than I have over time I've managed to do ok.
For those reefers who are just getting started and are secretly scared to death by the complexity of the hobby ,... My advice would be to take a deep breath and really think about whether you really want to do this or not ,..if the answer is yes then you're 90% there ,...ask questions ,study , listen to people who have been in the hobby for years that you can trust like Doug ,Hank ,Mike ,Greg to name just a few , be prepared for a roller coaster ride but somehow it'll work out .
It's extremely expensive and time consuming but at the end of a long day you can settle back in your easy chair and look at your tank full of corals and life ,pat yourself on your back and smile knowing that you've done something that's really truly amazing . Just my opinion and my 2 cents worth .
