I have to say removing a dying coral, especially something fleshy like a dying torch coral is what I find to be the worst. Also, some of the dried fish my wife fries up :P

Electrical has been 95% done. Power is on to all receptacles, I just need to run two more at a later date. Started back on the plumbing and finished painting a wall that just got finished being put up. Also installed the RODI unit, unfortunately is has a factory leak I'm trying to stop lol.

For the most part yes. I built the two 300 gallon water storage tank stands out of metal strut and then encased it in wood. With five thousand pounds of water weight I didn't trust the wood alone stand with my carpentry skills lol.

Yeah he did mark all the cuts on the pipes for me lol. I'm stoked cuz all this construction and delays are almost done so I can soon start focusing on the livestock. Hopefully I have water in the first tank in a couple weeks.
