I didn't get any of the brain/cup/star type corals on my LR.com order. Just a small tube coral. I haven't seen anybody get corals to speak of from LR.com rock. What does Zach have to say? Are you sure that those corals came on the TBS rock?

Edit: I just looked at the TBS rock online and the "corals" that they show in the picture are the same ones that I got with my LR.com order. They don't show any fantastic wild corals and I'm betting you won't get any either. If that's what you want on your LR order then you should speak directly with TBS and make sure that you will indeed get that from them. I highly doubt it!

I have been following threads at reefcentral where people get the package and take pics of each stage beginning at unpacking etc. Here are a few:

If liverocks.com rocks looks like this, I will buy from them in a heart beat. And I'll do a simular thread on both boards so people can see, that's my problem I just can not see for myself. I already said they are best customer support "." out there. But I just wonder if it's shipped wet wrapped what the coral survival rate? So please tell me if your rock looked like this stuff and what the coral survival rate was
I would love to be able to document how great the rock is when I get it, they have been great to me! But I just need to tie up those loose ends before I order anything

Wow. I'm amazed at the corals on that rock. That's incredible. I can tell you my LR.com order didn't look like that but I didn't order Coral rock either. Wonder if that would bring the brains, cups, etc...?

That's what I was wondering. Maybe I should send Micheal a link to those rocks and ask him if that's what I get when I order the coral rock?

Wonder if that would be insulting to him?

They are so great at lr.com, but after I buy this rock it will be awhile before I can afford to add anything else lol. Not to mention I shouldn't add anything else for a while so the tank can cycle....... I just want more bang for my buck even if I get a little less rock. Like 20ibs difference, but I would get clean up crew and 29 ins of live sand in the package. SHe siad if I come up some more $$ I can upgrade on the second shipment. But they are so busy it's no telling when I'll get the order.

Well I guess there are no more pictures, If I could just find someone with the pictures of their coral rock..... and how well the corals survived!

Maybe no one has pics

Makes me decision less educated.
