If I posted a thread about the light and my decisions when I used it, it wouldn't of happened.
Haha you did that with a light?!?

Yep in my bedroom too. It was at night and I would have normally been sleeping.. It was in my room and my room is near the rest of my family. It would have been tragic. I wanted to see the cool actinics but I left one of the outlets that was connected to the ballast open which stayed on and melted the plastic. I smoked out my room and it smelled for weeks.

Lol thanks for the support and I
Most likely will but he lives pretty far away, about an hour and a half away. We go on vacation near him though so it will be on occasion. His prices are soo worth it though. Plus, no tax he does sell live rock. It's nice too

Yep that's what I'm worried about also. How can I keep them in a bag for that long? Cuc doesnt exactly matter and not sure about corals but fish do.

Is it normal to have "hair" on your live rock? Mine is kinda fuzzy. Also, I found a feather duster! Pretty cool looking.
