Received my order a few hours ago and brought it home to temporarily place into a container with heated tank water & a powerhead till tonight.
Gotta say, everything Zack said about this rock is true. There is almost no noticeable smell when you open the box and the packing is unbelievable. It's better packed than live fish. I remember years ago when I ordered LR
from some place in CA
and it was shipped via air freight same day in which I had to pick up @ the airport. You would think this is fresh but I received them in 5 gallon pails and when I opened them up, boy the stink.
Today's order from liverock.com came with very nice sized pieces. LOL
, you needed to go through the paper towels to get all the little crabs! I also think I caught a mantis shrimp, at least I think, from someones description of a club like claw. Can't wait till I get this into the tank tonight.
Can anyone tell me if I should not put the brittle stars and crabs in with the LR
that's going into my FOWL that has large angels & a Harlequin tusk? If they are going to treat them as appetizers, then I dump them into my mini-reef.
