LR.com shipment just received ! lots of life !

Just received my shipment from LR.com
80# of Florida Keys rock
I am very happy with the quality of the Rocks.
There is a ton of life packed in there.
Saw some starfish,crabs,worms

Happen to find a Mantis just swimming around the bottom of
the packing bag. Lucky I didnt have to hunt him down in the
tank, hope I dont have anymore.

I also got a fish in the bag. He's alive and I have no
idea what he is. I am not planning to throw him in.

maybe the lFS will want it and the mantis.

I plan to mess with the layout until I find that perfect look.
I love all the purple all over the rock.

I would recommend LR.com to anyone.
LR.com did an excellent job!


Open box



Mantis and unknown fish Any idea what he is?



Mantis

The fish looks like a Goby.. Odds are you have a pistol shimp paired up in the mix.. Acclimate it to the tank.. Congrats.. Looks awesome

Sweet you got a fish with the rock. He must have been burried in one of the rocks at collection and stayed in the rock all the way thru the holding tanks and to your house.

ok the goby is in there. cant find where he went but he's there somewhere.

I also have a few small crabs in the bag and I am not sure what to do with them.
I know a few crabs made it into the tank, should I put these guys in there too?

the tank is finally looking like a mini eco system.
