The aquarium delivery was rescheduled for Wednesday or Thursday, delayed in shipment. However, the other plans are coming along well.

Here is the ASM G-3 Skimmer:

Yes, that is a home made skimmer. If you want to see the pictures of my sump skimmer, here is the photobucket link:

Obviously, this skimmer is just to help with the live rock cycle. It won't last long!

nice. your going to like the G3. i had a asm going for a while and liked it, until the pump failed on me. i cant wait for this tank!

Pasfur 03-13-2009 05:57 AM

In theory, the tank is to be delivered tonight. I confirmed yesterday.
We'll see how this goes...

and in theory your going to post lots of delivery pictures :wink:

Well folks, i'm afraid the drama continues. Thursday at 6pm I spoke with the owner. He confirmed that the 180 was on the truck and confirmed delivery to my home Friday night at 8:30pm. I tried to call the shop at 7:30 Friday evening but received no answer. He never showed, AGAIN, for the 2nd consecutive Friday evening.

I have almost no choice but to demand a refund and deal with another LFS. It is a real shame, because I love the quality of the live stock and selection.

Sorry to hear of your issues Mark. hopefully things turn around and you can get moving forward.
