    Man... I can't even express how exciting this is! I currently drive all the way up to Denver, so it's not really my "L"FS. Looking forward to your shop man! I'm a General Contractor, so if need a helping hand, just let me know!

    When do you anticipate opening? My company, Redline Construction will happily donate labor to the cause (myself included). Also, I'll give you my account info at Home Depot and you can get a pretty substantial discount on any materials you need! Hit me up (either text or call) when ever man and I'll be more than happy to help!!

    I stopped in and crashed Chris's painting party today... Wanted to say hi and check the place out. I'll go out on a limb here and say that it will no doubt, hands-down be the nicest LFS in town (coral AND fish) and I'm pretty damn excited about it! Keep up the great work Chris... It's coming together very nicely and your vision for the shop is spot on!

    I am super excited. I was worried about having to go up to Denver to find a fish store of the quality that this looks to be turning into. And...I drive down Austin Bluffs on my way to and from work every day. I might have to show up and ogle the frags more often than my wife will approve of.

    Hey I'm glad you're excited as I am to have you come shop at the store. We got some water in the warehouse now so we'll be running some lines now from the ro unit to the sumps for topoff and get the 2-275g water storage units filled. The hammerhead pump is plumbed into the coral system I'm just waiting on a couple bulkheads to arrive this week and we'll test fill the system with fw to clean it all out and make sure no leaks and then onto ro water and salt mix. With 1,000gpd ro unit I should be able to fill this system up in a work day. Getting close now!!
