Looking good, wish I still had my emerald crab, they are great scavengers.

I wish my second hadn't arrived dead. Shrug. I wouldn't struggle so much with clean up crews if I could actually buy them near me. Even petco doesn't usually have hermits or snails.

Check out reef cleaners.com, they are amazing and really cheap. It will probably be cheaper than buying from petco lol.

Oh im quite aware. Was more trying to state the annoying point of this. It gets expensive making all these orders. Would be nice to go to get groceries and make
a quick stop at the lfs if i needed something other than disappointment.

My order with my coral should be shipping tomorrow. I sent an email, which they requested, on how i want things to arrive. I openly stated i want my entire order, even if it is late and that i want all of it. Having store credit with every order is stupid.

Yeah, I could see how that would be annoying, especially since there are so many that are a little too far away. Do you know of them all? There are a few that you might be close too. I keep finding out about the smaller ones and they just keep getting better than the lfs before.

Well that depends. I know of one around slippery rock, but that's about it.

Yep that's a good one, cheap clean up crews there too.

Try Dave's aquastock in Ambridge, it's about 20 minutes up the road from aqua world. Theres also Elmer's, but I'm sure you've heard of them. Oddballs on 677 Joseph street?

It's creepy how I know the addresses, I know lol.

I used to hit up Elmer's when I was...well your age running my freshwater tanks. I'll have to check them out next time I'm down around there.

Oh, and just snagged a quick order off of reefcleaners. Quick 55 gal pack with a penny macro algae and some red mangroves.

Yeah Elmer's is cool. I want to go there soon for some sps frags, my new addiction lol.

Tell me how the mangroves work out for you, I love how they look, it would be cool to stick them out of my overflow or something.
