10.4 @ 16.6 max. 27.3

19F with 10mph winds proved to be too much for my warm-in-the-house softness. Lack of fitness + ice picks in my forehead + queezy == done.  I’ll keep trying.

Novel Sample

Overdue updates from the reef tank efforts: we have water!

have noisy drains to figure out, guessing I’ll need to increase the vent hole size to quiet them down or worst case re-fab an external standpipe making sure to go at least 6” above the drain height. I’m doing ~690 ghp in 2 x 1” drains. A 1” drain should flow ~1000k gph, so running them 1/3 capacity creates a vacuum. In happier news, found a home for the juvi false perc, I miss the cute wiggle-swimming

Whipped by the Winds of the West

Getting closer on the cube .. entering the final stages of paint and then spar.

A few from the temp tub, pico 4g has been taken down due to lack of space and inability to put my hand in the tank without overflowing it. Much better in a rubbermaid.
