hahaha funny

I will let you know. When I ordered the stuff last night, they said they are would have to order the skimmer in because it sold out almost everywhere(the octopus). Told him to get one in before sending me the rest of the stuff, so we shall see how long it takes. He said it would a couple weeks to a month for it to come in, so that combined with the shipping of the order-got some time.

It should be another 2 weeks for the tank and the rest of the stuff to come in. We still have to come into a new place so no rush yet(gah! want to start now!!). Will let you know when this stuff arrives. Trying to wait and be good...

Skimmer problem

So, the guy from Aquacave contacted me to say that the Reef Octopus has been discontinued. They have now come up with this one

http://www.aquacave.com/reef-octopus...lvue-3146.html

I was told it's the more updated version of what they had before. The dimensions are identical to the original so it shouldn't be a problem with the sump. He'll be shipping the skimmer and powerheads in a month or so when the new skimmers come in.
