yacolt is right outside of battleground, about 35-40 minutes from portland. and its a ric according to all the folks on the other forums i belong to. id be happy to do a lil trading, but, i gotta warn ya, i dont have much yet in the way of corals, the stuff you saw came in on my rock LOL and right now, i dont have a light that will support corals, gotta wait a couple weeks on that, but, ill have one very soon lol

[language filter], its been forever since ive been on here, holy cow, well, sorry to have kept you folks waiting for so long, and ive got some updated pics of my tank here for ya lol i finally got rid of all the green derbesia, scrubbed the hell outta that rock, let me tell ya LOL and i got some new additions, courtesy of some of our fine local fish stores, including these gorgeous deep water zoos from patrick at saltwater fanta-seas and some watermelons and rde's and what not from nick at rose city, also, i recieved from some friends on the east coast a gorgeous acan lord and a beautiful candy cane that had a kenya tree and some shrooms attached to it, and, on top of that, my yuma's that hitchhiked in on my rock have finally started coloring up, matter of fact, i might even be willing to let a few of them go, same with some of my other stuff, so if you see something you like, message me an make me an offer an we'll go from there
