It Was a Good Day

Didja? You bet, Summer! I was asleep by 10:30 PM and didn't get up until past 9:00 AM. What a luxury!

Our two live coral tanks have grown to the point that it's either sell some of the live coral or have two coral reef tanks that are just too crowded to enjoy. Harry advertised a few frags (frags are to coral as cuttings are to plants) on a reef bulletin board. I have been surprised how many he's sold. Over the past few weeks he's shipped to all parts of the country and some folks have driven here to pick up rather than have us ship. Tonight we shipped 8 or 9 corals to Florida and 7 to Illinois. I have to say the tanks look better for it all. Even the fish are happier. Below is a shot of about 1/4 of the 190 gallon tank. All the coral is live. If you look closely you can see 2 fish and a snail or two.

I don't know a lot about the coral but I enjoy seeing them and watching the fish swim among their branches. There are always chairs in front of each of the tanks so folks can sit and watch.

I'm going to curl up and listen to the Christmas music on Alabama Public Television. Celtic Women concerts are the best. Hope everyone is having a quiet, restful evening.

Wow, It looks gorgeous!!!

Would you mind if I emailed you or you emailed me? I would really like to talk with you about Huntsville since you've lived there for some time. We are thinking of Huntsville for a possibility as a future home.

We visit Huntsville for shopping and like the city, but we don't know a lot about the neighborhoods or areas much.

My email address is msduke@otelco.net

That's beautiful!

Wow! It's so beautiful! I know how much time it takes and what a delicate balance it all is.

The tank is beautiful in the picture but I'm sure even better in person. I'm so glad you're finding new homes for the extra coral. Your tanks must be so healthy. I'll try to take a picture of my brother's tank when I see him on Saturday.

Your evening sounded wonderful. I was so tired when I got home from work last night. I was in bed at 9:20 and got a full night's sleep.

Have another good day, OK?

The tank is just beautiful!! It must be so relaxing and peaceful to sit there. I did spot the fish.
Glad you got a good nights sleep. I am lucky to say I don't have a problem of not sleeping. I go to bed about 11:30 or so and wake up just before 6:30. I have a built in alarm. :-)
