Nothing wrong with that. It's nice to save a few buck when you're able to.
The vet contacted me and said not to sell any of the other zoanthids so I could use them to pay to vet our other dog. Apparently they liked my corals. Works for me, no out of pocket for the vet and I am looking to clean out the zoanthids anyway.

Things are going well. Corals are growing and fish are living. Got rid of the zoanthids colonies for vet supplies. Now I need to get the candy canes, monti frags and zoa frags I got left. Nothing exciting.

Thanks, it is coming along. I lost two frags from the big batch I got a while back, but other than that nothing but positives. At some point I will need about 5 more to fill in the empty spots, but not in a hurry. Maybe in May or June I will see if I can single source the last of what I need.
The family is doing ok, just the normal bit of drama and BS. The baby is doing well. Luck for all of us she is a happy baby and sleeps well. Daughter is just going back to work so the schedule juggling is about to begin. Well not for me anyway. I am the primary wage earner and make significantly more than my wife or daughter. They have to give up time or shifts, not me. We can make it with them making a little less, but not me making less. I do have basically Friday afternoon to Sunday night as my availability to watch the kid. If wife and daughter have to work every weekend for a while that is just how it has to be.
Weather is fine, not oven like yet. I hate Houston summers. It is hot and dry and all the concrete and building radiate it back, even after the sun has gone down. I am not a fan of Houston, I am just here for the work. When I retire I am leaving the next day. If I ever come into money, I am out of here. The only thing that would stop me from moving immediately on a Powerball win would be if it happened before May of 2021. My son really does not want to switch school again, especially as a Jr or Sr, can't really blame him.

The tank is coming along just fine. No big news or changes. Things are growing but not enough to show up in pictures.

Just before I posed this I realized I could snag photos from facebook. Sometimes I just do not think.

My plan was to get a few more fish and corals after I graduated. Well I graduated March 7th and we know how things have been since then. Between COVID and the crashing oil price I am just not interested in going many places or spending money.

The sps growing on the bottom right floor is not your typical sandbed coral! Nice
Is a couple of different M. Digi that broke off and I left them. Did not have room on a rack or time to try and sell. People in Houston are a pain in the butt to deal with. Offer stuff from free and they want you to knock $10 off the price. Now that school if over I will probably start clearing all that out.

A little tank update. Been two years since I moved it from Houma. It is coming along. Had an issue a few months back. I got a 20 gallon brute garbage can for water changes and a completely new filter system. Suspect I did not clear either or both well enough. Caused things to brown a bit and have a few spots of die off on a few pieces. Color is coming back and flesh is growing over the dead spots.

In other good news I started a new job last Monday. Funny thing I am now employed by a Louisiana "down the bayou" company that is starting a Houston office.
