    Yeah, I know I misspelled Louisiana. I'll have to go back and change it. I'm originally from Franklin, but I am living near Cypremort point in an area called Louisa. I actually live right across from the Port of St Mary. I haven't been around Burns Point since I was...well never mind about my age.

    My tank is a 75 gallon reef with liverock and livesand. It was originally set up last year fully stocked but Rita destroyed everything I had in it. I'm hoping I won't have a repeat this year. So, now I'm starting over and these are some of the first pics.

    Thanks Chris and Jcraft for the welcome. I'm looking forward to chatting with some locals.

    Hey, thanks I'll keep you in mind. I was in Patterson today at Steve's Pet shop. I picked up a percula clown. The only corals that I have now are a purple shroom, encrusting gorgonian, pumping xenia and a montipora. I absolutely love ricordia shrooms. I had a tiny one in my last tank. :cry: If possible send me some pics.

    Ever been to petexpress in Houma? I've been there three times but he always sells out of the good stuff by the time I get there. Other than that I usually go to Tropical fishbowl, Steve's or order online.

    I'll have to agree with Ronnie, N.O. is the place to go according to many posts. But, just incase you are curious, Steve's is in patterson. I am hoping that one day soon I will be able to go to N.O. to see the LFS myself.

    I actually live closer to New Iberia than Franklin. I'm not far from Lydia, but still in St Mary parish.
     
  11. when you have to drive at least 2hrs to get there, it makes it difficult to want to go.

    I will make it there one day.

    Same here! Money is tight. But the idea has merit. I'm anxious to check it out even if it is to just take a ride. But, to go with no money? Torture!!!!

    Thanks Gary,

    I can't wait to buy my next set of corals and fish. I'm thinking of rearranging my liverock so I'm gonna put it off a bit longer. But, man I'm can't wait to get some more stuff.

    very nice!!! Looks like you had a beatiful tank set up.
    Just think though...Now you can make changes you might have wanted to do then.
    Just trying to find a bright side of things :)
     
  17. Beautiful tank! Have faith, you will get it back that same way or even better now.

    I want a sun polyp and bubble coral...... :idea: making my wish list.

    Got to get my pocket book back in order b/f my next purchase.

    My favorite corals were the bubble coral and the button coral. I also love feather dusters. In addition, I had an electric scarlet clam. His mantal had lightning bolts flashing through it. It kinda resembled fiber optics. He was too cool!
     
  19. Whoa! I would love to see stuff like that!
