Helpful Aquarists!

I must say, I got more then I bargined for tonight.

I contacted a local reef keeper, to inquire about some neat green ricordia they were selling for 10 dollars a polyp. Through a few emails they found out that I was looking for smaller frags and was instructed to drive over to their house to see their tanks etc.

The drive was @45 min (with a few wrong turns) but we made it shortly after the time me and the wife mentioned we would be there.

I was going to get the ricordia, and they asked how much we were looking to spend so they knew how they wanted to help us spend it...

These are what we ended up with...

Think I got my 40 dollars worth?

Gee. Only a 20 some hour drive for me. Might be worth it for 40.

Don't you feel guilty for taking all that stuff?

Hopefully, those weren't burgulars (sp?) posing as the tank owners????

naw, they are people who I later found out just like to help the area reefers...

they gave me the favia because they needed to get rid of some larger pieces to make room for grow out (darn stonies)

I did wake up this morning to discover the blue xenia is missing from the rock it was glued on

hopefully it will turn up later like it has a habbit of doing.
