    Film over display tanks at LFS

    I went to a LFS today and was very surprised to see a film covering the glass on the SPS tanks. It appeared to be the orange filter that people use for photography. They had it completely covering several tanks. Is this getting common now? 19 years in the hobby now, first time seeing it.

    WTB 20-40g RODI reservoir tank

    Prefer something that is plastic or acrylic. Old beat up tank is fine, just has to hold water. This will be going on the rafters in my garage, I don't care much what it looks like. I am in Long Beach.

    Back in Cali

    I guess I should say hello outside of the classified forums. My family and I just moved back to Cali, Long Beach specifically after 12 years in Portland, Oregon. I have been in the hobby since 2001, and for the first time in 18 years not had a tank running for the last 4 months. Weird thing...
