So much for spring, more like summer!! Anyone else having problems with keeping their tanks cool?

Sorry I haven't been on the board more, welcome everyone!! Wow how this forum has grown!

If you're looking for a tank, I've got a 100 gallon with stand and canopy that should be ready to sell in about a month (maybe less). Let me know if you're interested. It's got an internal overflow box.

100 is too big for me right now.... I'm either going to do a 20 long or a 40 breeder. Thanks though!

whats up, new to the board, although i'm over at oscarfish.com lurking alot...lol

in any case, i live in huntington beach, ca. about a 15 minute walk to the beach from my house. i've got a 150 in my living room i'll be upgrading to a 250-280gl soon. a 20 gallon in my sons room (he's 10 months old, the sound of the water helps him sleep) and a 20 gallon hospital tank all setup but dry because thats how i run my hospital tanks...

next in the works other than the big tank is setting up a breeder tank of either guppys, convicts or mollys.

my favorite lfs' in orange county would have to be:

1. pacific reef, fountain valley, corner of brookhurst and garfield. great selection of fw/sw and corals. plus a knowledgable staff that is actually listens when you talk to them.

2. tongs tropical fish, fountain valley, corner of magnolia and warner. great selection, knowledgable staff

there are few other nice ones around, but these two have been awesome helping me out.

Nice to meet you, Wright. Those two are pretty much the ones I frequent.

Have you been to Ocean Reef? It's just around the corner from you. Not really the reason I go all the way to HB, but I'll stop there on my tour of lfs in your area.

ocean reef on beach? not to big of a fan. i mean, the owner is cool, but the condition of ALOT of his freshwater fish is just appalling in my opinion. i mean, he has 8-11inch flowerhorn/oscars/JD's in 10 gallon tanks...some for weeks at a time...

it kind of pisses me off actually, to the point that i won't even walk back by the fish if i'm there for supplies.
