Initailly I did not feed them at all. now I suppose they get some of the phytoplankton I feed to the corals.

they are so cool, I'll prob. end up with a FOWL tank so I can get one
Shhhh don't tell hubby!

I was just wondering what the chances are for the a lot of the coral to survive since it is shipped wet wrapped instead of in water.

fwiw, the folks at liverocks.com are going away in the next few days (i was told) to collect 5000lbs of new keys rock, so it would probably be a good time to order, as you would have a good chance of getting some cream of the crop stuff. My order is being shipped on the 23rd. Let them know what is most important to you (size, color, life, etc, and they will hook you up.) Can't wait to get mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What came on the rock (and survived) as far as coral?

Yes I have been driving them nuts emailing them a hundred questions! They have been so wonderful to answer all of my emails and questions.

I have just seen a lot of pics from tbs that had some beautiful coral on it that stayed on the rock..... really nice brain, cup , star? to name a few.

That's what I want. If I can get that from liverocks.com I would rather because they are fantastic but if I cannot, I just want to know.
Most of the few pictures that people have sent me to look at in these forums seem like they have a lot of life and color but I really don't see much coral, just what people added a little later.

That's why I ask what was there and what's been added.
