Well as most of know I've been extremely busy due to the storm. I've been deployed to L.I. twice and came back last night. I did lose all my saltwater fish however the corals look to be ok. I had my buddy do 2 water changes while I was gone. I had to move my wife and son to CT due to no power in my area.

Freshwater tank is ok. No loses to report. My heart goes out to all those who have lost ALOT more then just a few fish. It puts things into perspective lemme tell ya.

I've met some great high spirited people along the way and it has humbled me.

Thanks again for all those who have contacted me during this but I see the worst over and I will be deployed again by my wishes to help rebuild Sea Side Heights.

A bunch of us with backgrounds in certain trades have been in contact with people out there and honestly I can't wait to get started.

sorry about your fish man..and thanks for your service. My best friend is in the guard here in northern NJ and was sent to Hoboken, Sea Bright and Seaside heights. He said Sea Bright looks like a bomb went off its so bad

I lost power here for a few days, but I was one of the lucky ones with a generator so I didn't lose any fish
