Thebarnacle blenny is doing just fine still as are the clowns I ordered. BUT the blue mushroom I got literally distingrated overnight, theres nothing left of it nut a tiny mush pile. And the orange ricordea i oredered is half the size of a dime and doesnt look too good.

SOOOO, no more corals or inverts from these guys. The fish seem like good deals so I may in the future purchase again but I'm in no rush.

Kinda stinks that they have a huge selection of corals and everything else but the fish are the only decent items to get from them.

Lesson learned, not overly upset but none too happy either.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The same thing happened to my 2 mushrooms in my new tank. I transferred a mushroom from my biocube, and it disintegrated. I thought must've been a bad mushroom so I bought another one and the same thing.

I hate to say it, but something does not seem right. If both shrooms are showing stress, I would review my system, not necessarily blame the supplier.

My other shrooms are looking fine. Just the new ones from aquacon are looking shady or dead.

So I'm sorry I am kinda stealing this thread, but how did everyone who had problems with aquaCON resolve their issues? I've sent 2 emails, no response, and called, but they were "busy."

I got an email 3 days later after a weekend stating that inverts weren't covered by the 2 day guarantee and that I sent my doa emial almost 2 hours late. So no satisfaction there.

My second order my blue mushroom melted within 2 days and the ricordia looks like garbage, I didn't even bother this time.

I will say their pre shipment customer service is excellent and thjeir packaging too. All the fish I ordered from them are fine and happy so the lesson I learned is if I MUST have a special fish only they have I would order again. Just not anything else.

I just traded a big frag of waving hand coral for 5 various SPS frags and it cost me $30 out of pocket at my LFS. No shipping. Sometimes the local guy is the best supplier. No more Internet fish/coral purchases for me unless I get to know the company first. They are happy because my coral was locally grown and so was the coral I got.

I asked at my LFS and apparently without a fragging license they can't accept frags for money or trade. Makes me wanna take whatever fragging class I have to. lol

Good deal for you! I also prefer my local lfs but for some things, like my barnacle blenny, I was waiting 2 months for him to find one so I had to jump on it. And the same with the clowns, I got 2 for less than what one would cost at my lfs and so far my fish are good.

My next purchase online will probably be liveaquaria or petsolutions again. Both come highly rated and have that 2 week guarantee which is awesome.
