I've been sick in bed for the last 24hrs... got a response from ecotech this morning telling me what I already knew. It is the dry side for the quiet drive and I'll have to buy a qd driver if I want it to work. I'm going to PR next week so I'll consider ordering it when I return.

Some kind of super virus from outer space. It sucks.

Just looking forward to lounging on the beach and snorkeling around. The wife planned everything so we'll see.

What to do on a Friday when you're sick and can't go outside? Make filter socks for the biocube

Thanks, I actually used filter floss "In the beginning..." but I hated it, I'm cheap and the idea of a disposable filter bothered me. So I buy a 30"x36" sheet of 100 micron filter material (~$10) and it lasts me quite a while. I'm sure it's no different than what you could buy at a fabric store but it comes packaged nicely saying it's for aquarium filtration and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Really I cycle between only 2 socks, today I made 3 cause I was trying different "designs". A square filter sock is more work than a regular round one.

my kids and I would find creatures and ID them before putting them back. World learning at its finest, these anemones were stuck to a mangrove propogule floating around
sea urchins, jellyfish, hermit-crabs, a large bristle worm and more! Was an amazing place to visit
