Maybe I'll clean up the 36 and see how things go by switching over the flowerpot..that'd give me more room to work with in the 55 since it's getting pretty crowded in there.

Oh, so in today's before work note...the gbta has retreated under his overhang. Hard to see him, but I'm not concerned. When I got him I thought he looked...odd. I think he is splitting. Not sure, but I'm keeping an eye on it. Him having a crease in him is just not normal and his tentacles look unnatural...i want to say non symmetrical, but that isn't the right word for it. I'll keep posting.

Splitting could mean a few things. It was so stressed in the shipping, it decided it needed to split to increase chances of survival... Or, its just ready to split. As long as its healthy in your tank, it's a good thing. Sell the other for some moola

So, I'm thinking that I should sell/trade some of the stuff in my tank since it is getting crowded. That and to save the 2 meteor showers. For whatever reason they just won't extend and the one is bleaching a tad at the top. IDK, still thinking it over since it would be 300 bucks worth of coral.

Sheesh, how much are you selling? I don't think you would need to sell too much, do you not like the corals you have or something?

Just the meteor showers are roughly 75 a piece when I got them. Then all the frags I have and the sponge which I have started to hate. And if I end up with a second GBTA.

Why are you selling all the frags though? That's a lot to get rid of. The rest sounds great, extra cash is always useful! I don't think you'll get 75$ for the meteor shower here unless somebody really wants one on craigslist. Stores always mark up their prices on that stuff.

Thats why its value :p, not what i'd ask. I'd prob try to trade anyway. And I'm not planning on getting rid of my whole tank, just the stuff I fragged. Guess I wasn't specific on that part. The 2 frags I made of my new birds nest would be a great pickup. So would the orange plating monti. But, not there yet, I'd like to see them encrust some first.

Oh gotcha, thought you were selling the frags you bought. Trading is definitely the way to go, and there's a guy I know if your interested in some really nice corals. I don't think he buys much coral though. All the frags I got from him are doing great now.
