I used to work with a guy who had one leg. We called him Hoppy. He came in one day looking beat and when I commented he said "I have been stomping out fires all day." I said "Isn't that dangeraous with a wooden leg?" His reply, "No it is plastic. It just gets soft and I fall over". Got to love people with a good sense of humor.

Hahaha, thx for sharing that story!

BTW if somebody wants an update on how I'm liking my light fixture so far: I'm LOVING it! The light intensity actually went down now that I don't have just bare rocks and sand anymore. I'm glad I went with 8 bulbs instead of 6! Haven't had any issues with the bulbs anymore like in the beginning and the heat output is ok too.
The corals are doing great, my acropora is being a bit of a pain (just moved it lower due to bleaching) but I expected issues with it due to being an sps and I wanted to see how I'm able to deal with them yet...

As for the snails and crabs: havent seen skippy yet, and only a few more snails got up... Not very happy yet but I'm giving it time as suggested to me
