    Water in the stand!

    Man that sucks. Good luck. I guess at least the stand held the water to keep the floors drier. FYI I use these at home for cheap water alarms ($12). https://m.lowes.com/pd/Basement-Watchdog-Battery-Operated-Water-Alarm/1005609
  13. I have a great announcement to make a great meeting even better. To educate us all in seahorse keeping we will be joined, via Skype, by none other than the Queen of Seahorses herself - Tami Weiss!! Tami is the founder and curator of fusedjaw.com. She is an all around seahorse, pipefish, sea dragon and live foods guru that also was an early admin helping to build seahorse.org. Join us in welcoming Tami and learning from a master!
