    When I was a kid growing up in Staten Island NY, the family across the street was a "racing" family. They built stock cars. They had a 3-4 car garage with welders, lathes, and every toy tool you could imagine. Their car was number 777. It was emblazoned upon the roof, the two doors, hood and trunk. That number has stuck with me these past 40 or so years. It was a hotel room once on a road trip I took with some friends in college, and a couple of other times I can't exactly remember. But when it comes up, it's always significant.

    Well, financial divulgence NOT being the point of this thread, the dreaded 777 has come up again. This time with a "$" before it. That would be $729 plus tax here in FL. The price of this damned chiller.

    As Luna is wont to say, "If there ain't pics, it didn't happen."

    Well here are the pics. When I'm done and it's running, I'll post another.

    Thanks to Roger (Tangster) for the sage advice and time on the phone, and thanks too, to Steve Wright, for offering all the help in the world--he knows of what I speak. :)

    Thanks, grubbsj.

    The upgrade from dual 150W halides to dual 250's.

    Yeah, I knew you'd get some satisfaction out of this, Tony. :)

    That's one of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen, to my jaded aquarist eyes.
