That's certainly great to hear... I've just been using the time to imagine and design different aquascapes so hopefully, once it's here, it won't take me 5-6 hours to figure it out.

Its a freshwater set-up now...
I think you can get in trouble for posting that on this site. That hurts me and i didn't even give it away.

Yeah, I know, it was before I knew what I had. I bought it when I was young from a classified add on another forum. I toted it around with me for (10 years) to three apartments, the last one being on the 3rd floor. I will promise you that hauling an all-glass 180 gallon tank up 4 flights of stairs is a nightmare.

I didn't know what to do when I moved again, so I put in on CL - everyone that came to look at it, said that they had no way of removing it. I was just gonna leave it in the apt when I left, but a guy from work said he had (4) friends that would come and get it, so they did, and the rest is history.

Did you get an email with tracking info? So far I've gotten processing and confirmed, but nothing about tracking.

IIRC I did get an email when it actually shipped... You may want to give him a call. He shipped it the day after I called to check on my order status .

So ironically, as I was planning to call today... I got a call from him asking me what size tank the rock is for. I told him a 29 cube and he said that he'd accommodate nicely and ship out the rock today! Whoo hoo!

Wow my service was the opposite. I called 12 times throughout a few days and was sent to voicemail everytime until I sent out a nasty email

Sorry to hear that Ibrahim, it seems that he had pretty great service for me. He stated that my payment went under review last week through paypal, which made sense because my debit card had fraudulent charges in Florida before that I just had to take care of.

But, yup, he called and was very nice, and explained that unlike some companies that sell a "box of rocks" - he actually picks out rocks based on your aquarium size to give you the best possible outcome.

I was very pleased, and have already gotten my FedEx e-mail with tracking number. It was sent "FedEx Home Delivery" so I'm hoping to have it by this weekend.
