Received an order for 75lbs of live rock from Richard at TSW and it's awesome stuff. Growth is really unique with barnacles, sponges, algae, and a few baby corals. I received Walt's rock and the shapes were very unique and lots of nooks and holes through the rocks. Surprised how nice it was for man made and feel good not pulling from the real reefs. Packaging was probably the best I've ever seen and can withstand a bumpy ride during shipping. Arrived underwater and in perfect condition. Looking forward to placing in my tank next week. Richard was great to deal with, replied in short order and even followed up to make sure it arrived. Great service compared to larger online big boxes.

Best rock in the world!

It's been flat calm for sure Richard. We've been out the past 2 weeks and going out again this week.

The viz was great last week in 50 ft. with the incoming tide. If it's clear on your site I want to shoot some more video.

And I agree on the sand, I've been amazed lately at all the little burrowing creatures that make their home in the sand. They need this type of sand. Sugar sand is no good. Just collapses.

Btw, I'm considering a 120 gallon tank. That didn't take long, huh. Lol

I've yet to shoot one, but I'm to the point I think I could handle one now without getting myself killed.

My buddy free shafted a 4 footer a couple weeks ago. 3 shafts in it and it was still kicking and had to be brained.

They are most definitely delicious. :)

Yes, with the modified Glock. Too funny.

Like I said, haven't shot a cobia yet, nor have I shot an AJ. I have seen plenty of videos of guys getting their butts kicked after shooting one though. Gotta be careful.
