    hi Carla, looks like the 300 is doing good (as of Nov 7th). read a bunch of wining about the cold. yea, it's cold here too, -9 now and thankfully the wind is still. that's rare and it should kick up soon. glad to be inside but have to go out soon and start cutting up the two elk and deer we got this weekend. glad season is over, I'm tired of butchering.
    as far as fish go, my tank had a major casualty recently. my 28" black arowana jumped, I found him the next morning stuck to the carpet..... I tried to put him back in but when the bichir started eating it's eye we decided it was a lost cause. still stuck with the little 210 so I guess it isn't to bad to decrease the bioload but I miss the fish. to bad he was such a freak!!!
    sorry I didn't make it up there this fall, football (state A champs) and hunting have left little time for other things..

    Man, I think I am going hunting with Rob next year for elk! My arowana jumped too once but we were able to get him back in the tank, just lost a few plates of armor. The FW tank used to be next to the window and would get a direct hit from car headlights from time-to-time late at night. Also had alligator gar jump a few times... just wipe the lint off and toss him back in the tank. I'm glad that the SW fish don't try to jump too often!
    I love sushi! Is that strange?

    I guess I should do some catching up here since Devon went thru all the threads yesterday and was checking for updates.................LOL.
    Rob, sorry to hear about the Arowana, that really sucks, but when they go carpet creeping there just isn't much we can do. The trees are still there waiting for you and Julie, hopefully they will still be there whenever you can come up...............lol.

    I went out and did some Christmas shopping for myself here last week and bought a Canon 7D Markll and a 24-105mm f4L IS USM lens, so I had to play around with it a bit this weekend, and these are what I came up with, hope you all enjoy the pics:

    Great photos! I like how the torch is swaying in the flow. How much food are you feeding the tank these days?

    I feed a ~3" piece of nori at lunch time but then two cubes of green life line in the evening. How much are you feeding?

    Good to know, I think I'm fairly close to that. I just want to make sure that my tang and rabbit fish do not starve as the powder blue did.

    Good to know I'm not the only one drooling over the tank. It does look awesome.
