    I stopped by Eric's shop - Fragfarmer - Yesterday (Labor Day).

    He has some really stunning the SPS. The store has changed alot in the last several months - He has built a really nice little clean shop caterring to a new era of LCS (Local Coral Store). The store is definitely aimed at the high end reefer. And he has a selection that includes alot of corals I have not seen before, and definitely would like to have.

    I was on my way to visit Pucci of ExtremeAquatics, and had to leave quickly - But I still left with some frags, and Eric ended up with enough cash for a tank of gas -

        Nick,

        I didn't get home till after midnight last night - So I acclimated them and just set them in the tank.

        If I get my butt moving later tonight I might actually mount them.

        Nothing unusual as for frags - I just picked up some of the Shawn Bennett pieces that I had lost earlier this year.

                I'm taking a sneak preview on Friday. Or was that supposed to be a secret, Eric? Can't wait to see. Although I won't be able to buy any SPS since I'm setting up a new tank (and have RB's, uggh) - I can't wait to see what you got. Maybe I can pickup some nice LPS. Micromussas are down to $2/polyp, in case you didn't get the memo. Hopefully you price them accordingly. ;-)

                    Ya you didn't see my thread on geekcentral (Yes, I know I'm a geek, my wife and friends affectionately refer to it as geekcentral). I indirectly referred to you on the SoCal thread.

                    I'd like to see Eric's and Anthony's shop. And any monstrous skimmers. Are you around Friday during the day or are you doing bone stuff? I wanna hit Erics in the afternoon and head back to AZ after that. I'm forced to drive. Worse, a minivan. My niece is at USC and I'm delivering. But I'm coming home with a fish tank, lol.

                      I'm around in the morning. My tank is getting delivered and then actually I've got meetings from 12 or so onwards.

                      I'm not all that far from USC. But I am the wrong direction if you wanna hit up Eric and Anthony before driving back.

                      Don't have much to show except a disassembled AP702 and a pristine BK400ext....
