Also tossed in there their red ridge sponge, this will be my first sponge to try to not let it touch air..., and a red planet acro.

Let us know how the livestock comes in from reefs2go.... I have had ZERO success with ordering from them. they seem nice enough but the products i received were still crappy. I dont think I have any zooa polyps left at all out of over 100 I was supposed to get.

You should really like the citron goby too, I have one and he is pretty cool. A big goby bit still cool. He perches alot on stuff, even powerheads so he's neat to watch.

Yeah, reefs makes me mad lol... But when I had SO MUCH in coupons from DOA stuff I used it when my reefer buddy needed pods. Really excited about the goby...and the other 2 as well lol. With every order I make I seem to make a "well, lets see if I'm ready for this" purchase. As discussed prior it was my goniorpa. This time it'll be the red planet acro. Now that the tank is really doing nicely I think SPS are in order, unlike the outcome with my pink sero...whatever it was that died with the mass murder of all my corals. Here after a couple of months I might end up doing a website review or something since I have been using so many sites due to living in BFN.

Does the plate ever have tenticles out? Looks dead to me, or at least very sick.

Yes it does have its tentacles out. It looks like crap everytime i take a pic of it. It got covered in sand once so i put it on a rock and it came right back out. I want it back into the sand bed, but dont want to move him too much in a short period if time. By weeks end ill find him a spot.

Update. Things going well atm. Going to do some research on sponges. I didn't expose it to air, but it is throwing off film like it's pissed off. Threw in a pic of the plate coral as I was actually able to get a good shot of it w/ its tentacles out. The coral beauty is doing fine as are the rest of the old tankmates. The black goby and red planet acro didn't come...store credit...UGH. So glad I pushed the shipment back a day for them... Citron goby died last night. Green goby was out and about, but gone again. Just can't find where he is hiding. He arrived much smaller then what I was expecting.

I just got done working 28 hours. Time for tank maintenance. Came home to my flowerpot having falling over onto my plate coral. It is not happy. I moved him so it won't happen again. Hopefully he recovers. Flowerpot is fine, doesn't even seem to care. Side note on the flowerpot. When I got him he had a "skin tag" of polyps. It came off and was in the sandbed before I started working. I glued it down to a piece of rubble so it didn't get buried in the sand. I now have 2 flowerpots .

I spent a large amount of time scrubbing hair algae before my PWC. This stuff is growing old really quick. The new CUC was putting a hurt on it, but wasn't winning the war. After hitting it with the toothbrush I have faith that I'm back in control of the tank. With how dirty the water was after all of this, even after the PWC, I proved to myself that until this problem is under control I should not add any SPS. Guess its a good thing my red planet acro didn't come afterall.
