I do miss the Sunday night chat sessions. It was really funny cause I could look in on side conversations as well.

Never looked in on the chat room, other than clicking on it and seeing it didn't seem to be in use any more......often thought of kicking the tires just to see if'n any dust comes off. And I am absolutely shocked that we can never git MV energized! There's some loooooong winter's evenings when the Family is other wise engaged, and I find myself cruising the threads to see if'n anyone wants to come out and play. I showed up too late to the game and evidently missed TRT's hey days.

NOT TRYING single handedly kick start the site, but out of my child curiosity I keep stopping by the Chat room, and just did it again to verify....A/ How is it 'dated'? The numbers don't seem to make sense. And B/ Do you have to click on one of them conversations to see 'the chat'....because none of them seem to be a lengthy conversation?
I know....I must not be that noisy, or I could have figured it out by now.

Why do they always put the 'WRONG BUTTON' where it's sooooooo easy to hit! Grrrrrrrr. ANYWAY! THANKS TIM! The numbers make more sense now that a 'year' isn't involved with it. FANTASTIC HAUL with the TN TITAN's sale! Looking forward to the pictures tomorrow. I am soooooo in the mood, FINALLY, to but some more fish, though I know not what. Taxes are a coming, before too long, and I'll really try to find some fish this time around. 3 is just not enough for our reef.

Yeah I turn my lights out also, but as bright as my fish room is from the sun through the front windows, almost seems ludicrous. VERY NICE by the way......BUT there's sooooo many Fish on my radar, no room for other choices yet.

Its been so long since I went to chat I would have to go poke around. It was OK when we had a boatload of active people on( think breakfast thread with 30 + people participating.

Thanks Hack. They are still skittish acting in the tank. I haven't seen them much since that picture. I guess I got lucky to get that one.

Chat was fun Doug like you said back in the day. Problem now I think why it is dead really is there is no mobile support on the site for it. Many like myself don't turn on our computers to get on TRT.

HUH.....First I've seen THAT Tim. I've seen these little darlings everywhere, but first time on a fish......especially an 'active' fish like your One-Spot. Must be a sound sleeper and the star fish took advantage of a free ride. Wonder if'n there was any 'parasitic' intent, or just a mindless happenstance?

Hi y'all. Been awhile since I posted. Things have been crazy here with everything going on.

Just little update. Tank is looking great

With this pandemic it is getting hard to find distilled water. I had to finally break down and buy an RODI unit. I need to work on installing a utility sink in the garage now. I got the 90 GPD Spectrapure aquarium kit with auto shut off valve. Came in the mail today.

HiYa Tim! Ran into that same problem around here a few weeks back Pal with not being able to fine my distilled water for top offs. Wound up hitting the ocean once a week for filling our tank......The Atlantic around here in shore runs about 1.013-1.015 SG, and our tank I run around 1.026, so the addition of NSW didn't have a large impact. I haven't caved yet to please folks buying a RODI unit. Keep up the good work, and keep having fun.

Thanks Hack. That is nice living close to the coast like that. It would be nice to be able to do that. Got the RODI hooked up couple days ago and flushed it out. Got the brute can filled with water I made on Saturday.

Still need to plumb in a utility sink in the garage so I dont have to keep running lines in from outside to run it.

Found some old pics I took of the house when it was being built. It helped alot to know where the water lines and drain lines are.
