I like the Midas because it is more noticeable in a tank.

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

Cool, thanks adam and carey! Ill get these!

Ok, so we just got a little bit of live rock along with the two raw shrimp for the tank. These are GREAT pieces. Each is a pound, but they have coraline and macro all over them. One piece even has sponges, and the other has xenia!!

Question is, how do i keep these alive through the cycle? I know they are hardy, but will they survive?

It's really hard to say if they will survive. Just plan for the worst and hope for the best. It's probably too late now, but make sure to keep the sponges submerged.

Oh they were, transported them in water.

Should we keep the lights on now?

Transfering to tank is tricky with sponges, if the are exposed to air at all they will have air bubbles in them, which will kill them...

Oh crud! The guy took it out of water to weigh, and we took it from the bucket to the tank out of water. Maybe it isnt even a sponge though! Ill take a pic tomorrow.
It looks like lips weirdly enough
