It's crazy, I saw this whole story on how the lionfish is not indigenous to the Carribean. It was released by people in Florida due to a storm I think. They have no natural predators in that part of the Ocean and have completely taken over. They've destroyed the populations of fish that normally live there and are reproducing out of control. The fish that normally inhabit the area don't know of the lionfishes poisonous sting and predatory ways so they don't stand a chance. Pretty crazy.

Thanks. It is all good. Work, home, extra time with my son (we lost babysitter) and vacations every 3 months. Live is good! I can't complain. I redo my 75 gallon tank. I just put new stand and have to fix plumbing.
