“Bring out yer dead”

Brave New World

Powerhead. Live Rock. Filter Media. Up until a few weeks ago, I wouldn’t have had a clue what these words mean. A Powerhead, to me, sounds like a boat engine: “Man, our 20-foot river boat is propelled by the new Powerhead 7000 and it really hauls butt!” Live Rock could be some creature from a […]
