yeah, I'm still a little iffy getting stuff from them but this is my last shot with them. If I get screwed over this time they are officially banned even if the price is right. I;ve been waiting for notification from liveaquaria and a few other sites for when it comes into stock but it's been months and those other sites start at $30 a piece for them. So I figured I;d gamble yet again. I did ask specifically if anything I ordered this time has no guarantee or only the 2 hour guarantee and was told definitely not. OS I;m hoping they all arrive alive and well.

This was the first direct evidence that I have a toxin war going on actively and some of the softies (not all of them) are directly affected without carbon knocking the levels down. This same Colt coral has died back from basketball sized twice. It was a mystery until now. I blamed it on everything. But I now have a super stable reef, so it has to be something specific that the Colt, or the green finger don't like. Everything else, including other softies are fine.

I got mine at reefcleaners but I just checked and they are out of them right now. They were really cheap so you could always email John over there and ask if he has any coming up for sale.

foster and smith used to sell them but Ijust checked and nothing is coming up. :-(

I woudl just drop an email to john though, he's very cool. they carry medium clusters for like $7 and larger ones for like $12 or so.

Heres the smaller one

Just got my delivery and everything arrived alive and healthy so far. The red emerald crab is so tiny! But really cute. The mushrooms are ok, just gotta wait for the to open up.

The barnacle blenny is alive and in his accliamtion bucket. He's about an inch long.

Will follow up with pictures at some point today. As soon as the blenny is ready I have to go look at a new 55g tank I found on CL.

Busy busy day for me today! Since I have to go to orlando for the tank I may do some fish and coral shopping while I'm out there.

Keep your fingers crossed for the blenny, he's only guaranteed for 2 days. lol they also sent me some free airline tubing I guess for acclimation, that I thought was a nice touch.

They may have redeemed themselves in my eyes, but we shall see....
