They were like that at the store so I figured it was a great pair. It is not easy to start out. I have had a lot of bumps in the last 6 weeks but thanks to everybody here helping me out I feel good about where I am at.

Corals dont add to the bioload right? I bought three and I want to go back to get one more that I wanted. I will get more pics when I get home. I can't help myself now that the tank is cycled. I have to get one more..LOL

Hey Mike. Looking very nice! Mushrooms are definiltey pretty cool, and those are nice looking ricordeas. Even if there is more you want, I would still wait about a week now and make sure all of this survives. Patience.

No, corals don't add to the bioload, but with a new tank, I still think it's best to stagger additions just a bit.

More Pics.

Here are some more pics. Devilshirts I read what you said after I got back from getting the coral I wanted, a starburst polyp. I will not get any more for a while and I am going to monitor closely.

Thanks for all the kind words about the tank!

I will. I am going to wait til at least Friday to make sure all the corals/fish are doing ok. A small LFS near me had an awesome green Zoa rock that I payed for and he is going to hold it for me until I am ready.

New 30 gallon Reef in the making thread....

AWESOME! Looks like they are doing great! Might want to set up a breeding tank, and do some reading. You might have some fry in the near future. CONGRATS on the new family members!

++EDIT++
Err, new "grand kids...in the future....

That's a great one. It comes with pretty good instructions on how to set it up. If I could do it...trust me, you can do it.

How about a full tank shot?
