Cannot wait for part 2 to get here!

Any day out on water like that is a good day.

Currently filling my 178 gallon. Should be filled with all plumbing checks completed tomorrow evening. If all goes well, order will be placed by Tues to be shipped to Flint, Meechigan.

Can't wait,

Adam

Sounds good and thanks again for the quick replies.

Question: If the rock sits in holding tanks for a week or so, what is the impact with respect to what I receive? Are the sponges or any other life more likely to suffer or is there basically zero impact versus diving one day and shipping within a day or two?

Thanks,

Adam

I always hold the rock before shipment.....is how it works....so I can observe all the life to make sure it is happy to ship...to you underwater!
