    Well, its a world class facility. I'd love to give tours but there are 2 problems: (1) it would give away my many trade secrets on how to kill larval clowns, and (2) my basement is such a disaster I'd need you to sign legal waivers first, as you might not come out alive.

    Otherwise, I have a shelf with a bunch of fish tanks. Its not terribly exciting, but it works for me.

    You must know someone who can draft you a suitable NDA.

    Don't let him fool you. ORA designed their facility and systems based on a tour of John's basement. Our clowns are all about the same age. Any interest in trading some onyx percs for some of yours?

    LOL, could probably find that. I need the release from all liability no matter how reckless I am in littering the basement too though, not sure I can legally get that.

    Yes. Need a little time to see how their colors develop first so I can figure out what I have. Its my guess that the B&W ones may be brown for a bit, so I'm not sure how long it takes these guys to start to show their colors.

    Most recent photo. Think these guys will be big enough to start shipping them out to new homes soon.

    As you can probably tell, they don't like it much when I stick the camera in the water. ;-)
