Pics of tank today, got my LR this afternoon...

So excited. The rock didn't have any odor to it, so in it went! Here are some pics. Got a little side stepping crab with the shipment, can't believe he survived. Unbelievable. It took five days to get here from Florida.

Looks great!

I've had mantis shrimp, isopods, starfish, crabs, snails, worms, nudibranches, shrimp, coral, sponges, aptasia, majano anemones, urchins and tunicates.

Look for what? I don't know how they should behave, so any tips on what to look for would help. Thanks!

By the time it showed symptoms it would probably be too late. Having said that, tissue necrosis and falling would be the most evident signs. You should monitor/test for ammonia and nitrite daily for a few days as seaham said also. If you do get some ammo/trite, start doing large PWC's. LR should be quarantined and/or cured before going into a tank w/ fish and inverts. Keep an eye on that crab too, most can do some real damage including eating fish. Good luck

Thanks, that helps. I will keep an eye on my lil' crab. He is so tiny right now, no threat for quite a while yet. I will enjoy him while I can! :P

Ooooh, it looks like I have little coral fragments, too. Those will probably die off due to my lack of sufficient lighting, eh?

depending on your lights and type of coarl, yes it may die..
If you get ammonia you should QT the linkia until its gone, thats what I should have posted... Try not to touch the linkia with your bare hands either.. Oils from the skin can harm them.
Taking it back to the LFS to hold may be something to think about it you get a cycle with the new LR.
Is all the LR new???
