Say hi to my little buddy huma-huma-nuka-nuka-apua'a.
Tell him his nose doesn't look like a pig. When diving there I use to love feeding the Morays. Went on a night dive and watched the giant Manta Rays feed off of plankton attracted by our dive lights. Many fine memories of that place,

Yeah,..lots of memories for us too,...after the traffic accident with Laura this week and all that's happened ,...we'll really need this time to chill out and relax....last year I decided to go snorkeling in front of our condo and the very first fish I saw was a baby 3 inch humu,.. I knew the rest of the trip was going to be wonderful after that ,..and it was!

Haha yea I plan on getting plenty more, an nice start on the stand, I really want to build one for my 80g but I think it will be more cost efficient to just use a dresser I already have

Nothing too much to report today,...a 6 am run up to home depot got a sheet of 3/4 " plywood cut to my spec's and installed,... A few assorted trim pieces install and the frame was painted shiny black,.. I found a new paint ( at least to me ) that was a " glidden" door and trim high gloss GEL enamel.....about $17.00 for a quart can,..pretty weird paint because it's kinda like painting with wheel bearing grease,... I really liked it and will use it again,... I'll add the doors etc at a later date but for now ,I just wanted to get the stand framed out for the arrival of the new tank tomorrow,....BUT I do have one question,,....having never owned a large plexiglass tank before,...should I put the tank straight onto the plywood or should I use some sort of a buffer between the tank and the plywood , such as a piece of carpet , styrofoam etc...thanks, Dary
