I have a bone to pick

I ordered 100 lbs of gulf rock from Liverocks.com. Zack was way to helpful during the purchasing process amd when I opened to box I wasnt prepared for all the anemones, starfish, crabs, shrimp, and creatures yet to be identified that I found. The excitement has caused me undue stress and since my tank is at work it caused everyone here to stop working for over an hour to check out all the life.

So Zach, my blood pressure is up and I have about 10 hours of lost time at work because of your rock.

What kind of anemones did you find, or normally ride along with the rock from Liverock.com. To much good is said about this company, I'm going to get all my future rock from them as well. (120+ Gallon Coming JANUARY 2005)

I have found 3 different types of anemone so far, my knowledge of inverts is lacking, so it may take me a while to identify them.

The critters I got most excited about was the two brittle stars I found.

Somebody tell me this, How can this rock be soo good if it has so many bad hitch hikers? I hear great things about the rock, but then on the other hand I hear horoor stories of trying to catch a thousand mantis shrimp and devil crabs. How can this be, I so want the rock, but I truly fear it as well.

The price you pay for prolific LR. Desireable or not, it's the diversity you're after.
Once these pests are removed or tollerated, you are left with beautiful lively rock.

ell i have gotten rock from both places. liveaqaria and liverocks. the number of bad thing on the rock were far fewer then the good things. the liverocks when i pulled it out of the box was all coverd with red and pink coralline and the stuff from liveaquaria was not coverd at all. i had to wate a good 3 months to see some groth on it. the live rocks stuff has a lot of just good little things that you dont see on any other rock. or stuff you can see with your eye. it is stuff that helps out a lot brakeing down waste in the tnak and stuff. if any one is looking for good liverock for a lost cost look at liverocks.com. the price i payed for there rock was just a little more then the stuff at liveaquaria. but the life on liverocks.com is over 100x better.

I have 40# of gulf rock in my tank right now from liverocks.com and 40# more on the way will be here tomorrow 6/22/04 I cant wait!!! I have been very happy with it so far , I think I spend more time looking at the rock then my fish. Every day it seems I find something new. I have had my rocks now for 3 weeks, today I found a new hermit crab just a little baby was so small I could hardly see it. A couple of days a go I saw a baby sea urchin. There are other new things as well but not sure what they are yet thinking some type of coral still trying to figure it out. I do have lots of Aiptasia, they look really neat, ill kill them later when I start buying corals wish I could keep them. I also think but it is not confirmed that I might have a mantis shrimp not sure yet we shall see. I just love all the life on the rocks no complaints from me. Cant wait till tomorrow to get my new rock.
