Pasfur's 180 FOWLR build

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:

The Mag:

The Heaters, a Finnex Delux:

And my live rock curing:

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... you dropped some butter and mountain dew into your LR vat...

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

Lookin' Good Mark. Crafty Skimmer you've got there, Nice job.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

Can't complain for a 15 minute home made skimmer.

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.
