Thanks for the support guys ..Its going to take me months to rebuild AND IT WILL HAPPEN . Our area got hit badly .HOUSES DOWN THE BLOCK from ME GOT swept away and destroyed and me and family are so lucky our house didnt get sweep away from the surge of sandy .

The cray is doing fine though!!!! He's moving around and eating.

We're just waiting for fema to get here to get a estimate of so much damage she did to the basement .(I"M saying 20 grand or more)Everything was destroyed. water heater ac unit ,heating unit ,furniture,refrigerate,stove, 65inch led flat screen tv, clothes ,wooded floors etc.... i have a lot work ahead of me ,but it will get done .....

Rip My baby car that sandy sweep away and destroyed TO.....yOU 'll be missed

its been a terrible year for me with pets, but i will never stop loving them ....

I'll see you guys maybe a month or two with a new tank to show, but for know ,my living arraignments must come first than another fish tank will pop up ...


peace


Catch you guys on the REBOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's the spirit! Not sure how much help we can be but we're here for you. I'm glad it was only material things that were lost. Sending good wishes your way and keep us posted.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I'm sorry about your situation and the lose of your aquarium, I had family on the eastern shore of MD where i am originally from, that took a big hit as well. I Hope everything gets better for you!

I'm sure you've heard 'i'm sorry" too many times.

I can't wait to see what you have re-built.

as with everyone here,i'm so dreadfully sorry for your losses.
i sincerely hope everything works out for you.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I am also sorry for your loss but very happy that you and your family are safe. It is times like these I tend to take stock of what is going good in life. Every day can be a challenge. I look forward to your rebuild. Your little crab is showing you how to move forward, it seems.
