Right on Pete!!!!!

I'm happy for you! I hopped back on to RC and saw your tank and said Holy S*&#! it's Pete's tank!

Much deserved after many hardships. I'm happy to see a TOTM that is 4 miles away from mine


Now to avoid the curse!

Congrats, Pete!
You know, if your tank hadn't been the first one Donzi saw in someone's house, he probably wouldn't have been so excited about getting into this hobby

For everyone else, as good as the pics & vids are, this tank is awesome in person!
