I got my saltwaterfish.com shipment today! All of the items are accounted for. The colt coral I ordered is HUGE!!! The zoas are much bigger than I thought, and the mushroom is about the size of a quarter. The two fish are pretty small, but alive the two peppermint shrimp are completely different sizes, one is large and one is much smaller. The feather duster is gigantic. I'm afraid the hawkfish might eat the shrimp, but it was like $3.99, so not much harm. Ok so my full list is...

1 Bicolor Blenny
1 Longnose Hawk
1 Colt Coral
1 Carribean Blue Green Zoas
1 Green Mushroom
1 Reef Recharge Pack
1 Peppermint Shrimp (one is in the recharge pack)
1 Feather Duster

In my 90 gallon tank drip acclimating! The corals are in. As is some of the CUC.

If a bicolor Blenny has nearly transparent white dots on him that isnt ICH, can it be from stress?

BAD NEWS : the bicolor blenny randomly died during acclimation. It wasn't looking very good at the beginning. The hawkfish is fine. Customer support - the real way to judge a company

Sorry to hear about the blenny. :-(

Please let us know how they handle this, I have considered ordering from them and would like to know how good their guarantee really is.

Just sent the email requesting in store credit. They have a 5 hour full money back guarantee but the Blenny died after like 5 hours 10 minutes (really Blenny? Really?) after I signed for it.

On another note, the feather duster looks fantastic. I took the opportunity to do some new aquascaping to accommodate the gigantic colt coral (It is cutrrently in the process of splitting I think) and it looks like and actual coral reef.
