Thanks. I'm excited. I'm hoping they'll be here tomorrow, but I'm not expecting them until Thursday.

I do have one question about placement. I know where I'm going to put the zoas, paly's, and the sps... but I don't know where to put the acan or the mushroom. Any suggestions on flow, light (high in the tank or low), etc? The mushroom was just a filler to get me up to the free shipping total.

My acan is doing great on the sandbed in my 29 with the 4 bulb t5ho's.

Good to know. Is the area that it's in relatively low flow or higher flow? I have several spots on the sand bed it could go depending on the flow.

www.myreeftoyours.com it's a site that a lot of guys on a local forum have had extremely good luck with and the guy that runs it is a super nice guy. I've seen some of the corals he's shipped out in person, and they are awesome.

Yeah, you should. I just got a tracking number, so they'll be here in the morning. I'll update with pics tomorrow evening once they're settled in.

I rescaped the tank today as well... wanted to make room for the corals, and also get a spot way up high for the sps, as I am wondering if it'll even do any good under my lighting.

Here are some quick pictures I took a few minutes ago. Nothing special, then again, I just snapped them real quick.















A quick FTS after the rescape
