    I just got back from visiting my new Bimac at the LFS.
    It just came in today, and I'm waiting until after the weekend to
    bring it home.

    A small bimac, about 2" leg span.
    I almost can't wait, but I know I should.
    I'll let them deal with getting it aclimated and eating after the trip.

    I also forgot, the sump project was this weekend and
    was a disaster,
    the acrylic glue I was told to use, didn't hold up to the water pressure.

    I can keep the pieces and use it later, with the right glue

    anyway, broke down and just bought some glass tanks,
    (1) 10 gal sump and (1) 15 refugium

    I should have gone that route from the start, after all weekend
    clamping, glueing, drying, leaking.

    2 hours after the decision to go glass tanks, it was done.

    it's home :D

    but I needed to return the camera for monetary reasons.

    something about needing to spend some cash on a refugium.


    will try to post pics soon
