The coralline cluster is half broken but there is a good amount of purple on it so I guess i got what I needed. Looks alot nicer online though lol

I think that picture is the mushroom, not sure if thats the one in question.

Once I get my camera adjusted for the blue I will take some more.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I like your scape, that's gonna look sick when you fill it up with coral and it grows out. Looks like it's coming along nicely

Today was a pretty good day at the lfs for the 40b at least! LOL

Picked up a red serpent star, a really nice large frag of hollywood stunner chalice, a HUGE cinnamon paly, a nice colony of acans, a red/orange tree sponge and a torch. I think thats it lol.
Also picked up a bottle of LPS coral food, it's like a gel and actually stays put when you feed the coral polyps. The guy at the lfs fed a few acans and the reaction awesome, they immediately gobble it up. $25 bucks for the bottle but it should last like forever since I am not into feeding my corals constantly.
Will take some photos tommorow when they all open up, didnt get home til like 11 tonight so not the best time to shoot pictures. hehe
They had sooo many nice things that they got in just for our reef meeting it was hard not leaving with more. They had a pretty large yellow tang but I figured I'd wait til I get back from Philly and see if they dont get some more tangs in.

Red Serpant Stars are so cool! Color=check, personality=check! I'd like to get some kind of Serpant for the 29g at some point.

Sorry to hear about your husband's grandfather, it's always tough losing a family member.

Yep, I got lucky that he had a red one, the only one he had too. lol

I had gotten another one a few days before, a striped leg serpent that was missing one leg. I got him home and he spit off all his legs and died. :-( So they gave me another one last night which was very cool of them.

Hoping to hook up with MrX when I go up North this wee and maybe get some new corals, so that should be uber interesting. Have my stryfoam cooler all ready for the trip. lol I'd get fish too but a 16 hour ride in my car might not be the best for them. hehe but corals I think will make the trip just fine.

Have a safe trip to the other side of the state Carey. If you have a cooler, then as long as you got them acclimated once you got home you should be fine in a large enough bag. I have livestock shipped to me all the time, both over night and 2 day...though 2 day really pushes it.

I just had a clam survive a 3 day trip. It was a screw up on USPS's part, but I was sure I was going to open the box to some foul smelling water, and it was just fine.
