Swinging in now to provide a "heads-up" to the fact that I'm going to sell the Sun of Kahuna. Nothing's wrong with it - never been better in fact. But the wife and...

Hey Phil. Thanks for those shots! What you are showing in the first shot is almost certainly a clear acrylic internal overflow box, with three drain pipes. Between having three pipes, and one being...

Ohhh... and most of my aquarium time lately has been going into my little reef tank. Trying to finally finish that off. Recently made a new DIY LED fixture for it that's working pretty well. Here's a...

I took some shots in the daytime, so there...

Yeah, but he had the jump on me with the Green Tefe's. And I'm OK with that, except that it looks like I'm copying something. But that's OK. The original Kahuna was greatly influenced by Jeff. As I...
