More Pics

And more pics.

Only was able to get 3 corals....Not a shi* load Carey hehehe.

I got no fish.

I got some 6 Margarita Snails, 1 Scarlet Red Hermit Crab, 1 Emerald Crab, A Turbo Snail I think, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, 1 Blood Red Fire Shrimp, 1 Nassarius Snail (only one they had).

1 Hard Tube Coco Worm (Red and White)

1 Orange/Green Polyp (on a branch type thing)

1 Elegance Coral.

That's it for live stock. (Unfortunately - store price was alot more than some of the online prices. Found that out shortly before I got home. I'm calling Monday to see if I can get a credit for the differences)


There ya have it, that's it. Hope no one's bubble is popped, but how can I come home with a shi* load of corals at 50.00 a pop????

Elegance and Coco Worm are already opening up. , They were opening before I was done taking pictures as you can see the Coco on the left side of the tank. If I get to close for the pictures they get blurry, so sorry they are a little far away. Lights are off for the night.

Oh that little thing under the rock (side tank picture), is the Emerald Crab - supposedly. He's not green though :-(, guy said when they get bigger some loose their color, is that right? I wanted GREEN. lol

Nope, but I never did it before. And I forgot to premix saltwater before I left and get it up to temp too, so I had to do that before I could acclimate.

I'll need to check out Bluezooaquatics. Thanks. Don't forget I got other stuff I needed too. I didn't want alot of snails or anything. I didn't buy the small bottles cause I didn't want to go back up right away. Now I only need to go up when I want to pick up something from Diver's Den (sales, sales and sales LOL). I didn't really anticipate much "livestock" as I still needed to get the other stuff (my puppy water dish wasn't cheap either lol.) So when you buy 30, 40, 50 & 60 dollar stuff (which at 1 each is 180.00 right there), it don't take much to get up there). I kinda hate ordering online but am slowing getting there. I know it's cheaper but still, I'm not crazy at all about it.

Anyway, other than a few things that I found were cheaper on line, I did pretty good considering all the maintenance stuff I got without going online.

P.S. Salesman did talk me out of a few corals too LOL or my total would have been higher. I'm glad he did cause I don't want to go and get something I can't or don't know how to take care of yet. So my 3 corals are just perfect, and I have enough stuff now to take care of of them without having to figure a way around my work schedule to get to a store, except....Carey smack me now but I didn't get the phosphate test stuff. They didn't have it at the store and by that time I wanted to get back on the road so I didn't want to wait for them to go to the warehouse AGAIN lol. I have to look back and see what other tests I need to get.


Hannah tester.....Shows my temp is 2 degree's higher and my pH is 8.4.

The button is real hard to push to turn on, actually hurts my thumbs but hey, no doubt bout the reading now. I still can't get it into set up mode so I can change from celsius to fahrenheit. But so what, I just go online to convert LOL till I get it. But this tester is SWEET. Bye bye API woohoo

I'm bushed, nite all. Thanks for all your help and input and if these lil buggers die on me, I'm gonna resurrect them and kill their as*es all over again.
