1350....Aqua Life (sorry kdblove99 - totally unplanned; Kevin's idea :)
1420....Exotic.
1500....Jo Jo's. Almost boght a dendro (or something similar) until I observed the bat fish bite off a mouthful of tentacles.
1550....Began our own little MARS tank tour - saw petes97 and fixed Kevin's skimmer.
1445....Hit cathoai's place to pick up "accidental frags" - wow!
1715....Hit Reef Hermit. More than was there last time i went still more stocking to be done.

Sorry Davey, the clam shipment came up while we were at YR and I made Kenny go. I'll give you as much time on the ditch rope swing as you want.

Good times. Good times.

I managed about 90 minutes of tinkering on the frag setup after all that... And am still surfing RC. HA!

Totally over it
1. We admitted we were powerless over our reefs and that our checkbooks had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a power greater than us could restore our reef funds.
3. Made a decision to to turn our will and checkbooks over to the LFS.
4. Made a searching and fearless inventorty of our corals.
5. Admitted to the spouse, ourselves and the guy at the lfs how wrong we were for not buying that Dragons Breath Acan last week.

Hehehehehe

Saturday I made a day out of aquarium stores.

Lots of cool stuff and good fun I must say. Discovered a wonderful burger join right by Aqualife. Gotta love the great Sacramento area stores.

I am going there this weekend and will be limited in time... Are there any good places worth checking out?

No where worth checking? I was planning of going to Atlantis, but if their selection is not that great then I would rather go where the selection is and score from there. My wife would not be happy stopping by several stores. So any recommendations?

Well based on the spots on that list those are good (undestatement) bay area stores there. Looking for nice SPS pieces, LPS, Zoas. Just coral wise. No fishes. Looking for selection and price. Have at it.

Kevin and Kenny,
Visit was short but nice. And you brought your daughters, a family affair. Seems like you guys are always on the move.

I'm in Woodland often. As you know, I have a daughter there. I would really like to make a Woodland tank run. What do you think?

Joe...
You better let me know if you head out this way.
You'll have to see my tank and make sure I'm doing it right!
