    No HLLE. I doubled down on my carbon. We'll see if that does it.

    Sorry for the delayed response, the site wouldn't let me log in for some reason. I'm just now getting my tank set-up so it'll be a couple more months till I'm ready for it, if you can find out if they're interested I'm only looking for a piece an inch or two long.

    I've been trying to get to the meetings but, I'm living in Tavares/Mt. Dora now so getting over to Orlando is getting a little tough, as well as, Tara and I just had another baby in Jan. I've seen the pictures of Bristol on Rebecca's Facebook page, I'm amazed at how big he's gotten.

    Do you have any stores over here that sell Oceans Blend?

    Hey Russel this is Jason Le, how have things been? I was wondering if you know of anybody or have seen "The Weed" around. I'm in the process of getting back into the swing of things and I'm setting up a 40G and thought it would be cool if I could find it again?

    Thanks! I'd love to hand out some stuff to the club. They haven't had a club meeting since I've been here because of the holidays, but I think the next one is scheduled for January.
    Oh man, it was crazy moving the tank up here. My tank actually cracked and broke on the way up and I had to scramble to get a rubber container setup as a temporary tank. Luckily someone had a 40 breeder for sale so I got a new tank running in a week. I lost a few of my smaller frags, a couple of fish and a couple of clams, but everything is back to normal now. The tank is going through another cycle after getting all new sand and moving everything but hopefully it'll be over soon. I think I'm going to hold off buying any new livestock for the tank until we move again in a year or 2. Maybe by then it'll be time for a bigger tank anyway

    Thanks again for the products. They'll all love me coming to my first meeting with gifts in hand!

    My new address is 2921 Glade Aster Ct, Raleigh, NC 27604.
