If you've been to amazing you know their prices are super high but the quality is tops and its mostly aquacultured. Then we have Poseidon which has pretty much every coral you could want, he has everything I swear, lol, and heis reasonable. Now exotic-reefs has some good quality and super cheap prices. If you like zooas and mushrooms they are the people to see. here is a link to their page:

Exotic Reefs - Welcome

You can even find zooas and mushrooms for less than $5 each. Not alot of polyps, but designer zooas with a few polyps.

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

Productive day for me today!
Bought 25lbs of base rock, its really nice, I got like 4 pieces and three of them have huge holes going thru them for little fishies which will be perfect!
Also picked up 2 20lb bags of fiji pink live sand and a tube of acrylic for the overflow box.
I also got some nls fish food and a 2.5 lb flat pack of pemysis! I am set for a bit now.
I spent a good amount of time in poseidon looking around and lo and behold what do they have in stock? THE NEW ruby red mandarin!!!! I am in love with these little guys and am pretty sure that I will be getting one for this tank. They are like $90 online but the store has them for $45! The owner said a few are even eating brine so thats promising.
I think the plan for stocking will be itty bitty fish. So far, the ruby red is a must have and I also very badly want a two spot, signal goby. Yep, I know they can be difficult to feed but if I can make the mandarin work I bet I can get him to thrive as well. Any other ideas out there for itty bitty fish or other small ones? I plan on an open top too so keep that in mind.
And finally, the 60g stand is supposed to be done by Friday so that will be another build.

Thanks!!

Not sure about FL. But here in Hawaii i believe we are allowed to take up to one gallon of sand a day or 5...something like that, even so I still buy my sand lol

I want to get a Hi-Fin Red Banded Goby, Orange Stripe Prawn Goby and a Rainsford Goby for mine. Not sure they will all be okay together though. Also want a Tanaka's Pygmy Wrasse... I'm guessing they are typical wrasse jumpers, but have not looked into them much yet.
