Hidden Reef is not that good at all as far as selection goes. Maybe I'm just spoiled with the stores in my area, but it was not worth y over 2 hour ride at all.

AbsoluteFaye's Mantis Tank Build!

Yes, you need to order a poster from them. I thought the impact of a .22 caliber bullet was interesting. Coral Magazine did a really good study of them a few years back. I also think there was a show on PBS, the Nature show that was about this crazy shrimp. I'm a big science fiction addict, so I keep thinking one of these the size of a pony would make a good movie.

So I added a large rock full of palys from my other reef tank to the mantis tank. I also added two zoa frags. My tests are at 25 for ammonia, 0 nitrite and 40 nitrate. I'm almost there!!! Guess I'll call my LFS this weekend to order me the mantis. I wanna add a few more corals first though and a few fish. I know they'll probably get eaten but I'd like to try.
