thanks for the advice! the anemone was a long shot. i'll probably stick more to shrooms and a couple frags, then letting them grow.

i'm only buying fully cured live rocks. i don't really mind the money... more concerned w/ quality... i'm also staying far away from Petco or any generic store like that. i'd rather deal with a fish specific store that knows what they're doing, than some high school kid just working at a pet store to make a buck.

i guess i should look into adding a couple more rocks while i let it cycle.

thanks again man...

hey carefull what you say about the people who work at petco

i work at petco and i know atleast in my store to work in the aquarium area you have to know what you are talking about or they move you away from it

but that could just be my store

He wasn't being personal with any one CRB. There are plenty out there at pet stores that have the experience and know what they are talking about. But there are also plenty of people out there who have proven to not know what they are talking about. We are happy you are one that knows what they are talking about.
