liverocks.com keys and coral rock shipment came in (w/pics)

My last (famous last words) shipment of rock came in, 70lbs keys and 10lbs coral. Now I have 120lbs of rock in my aquarium. I really like a lot of crannys and pathways so I have it scaped like a maze. My favorite part is the big cavern under the branch rock, will take better pics of that for my gallery. My fav piece of coral rock has a few xmas tree worms, I love those!

Sweet. Looks GREAT!!

I love the branch, too !!

Is that a big aiptasia at the top of your hill? If you don't already know this about lr.com rock, be on the lookout for them, I had several large ones and a handful of smaller ones on my lr.com rock. That and a mantis shrimp are about the only things even remotely "wrong" with lr.com roscks. I am TOTALLY happy with mine, too.

Here's some of my branch:

They are cleaner shrimp.
Scarlet Skunk cleaner shrimp.
Peppermint and Blood Red Fire shrimp are all part of the Lysmata family and are all considered cleaners.

Most LFS's just use the generic "cleaner shrimp" name for the Scarlet Skunk.

Yep, them aipstasia are gettin a jot of joes juice this weekend. And yes, I like it sku-unky! BTW nice branches midiman! I took the other branch and did sort of the same thing but smaller on the other end. I'm not sure if what I have is mantis shrimp or pistols, they had two big claws, were small, and had a white bordered by red stripe down the back. Wish I'd gotten pics but I was really sick, had the baby yelling at me, and just was concerned with getting things in the water. Then there was a big dark reddish one that came in, I caught it once but couldn't see any claws at all on it so I cut it loose again. I definitely hear popping from the tank now though. If I got mantis well so be it, it can stay there until it does something horrendous.
Now I'm thinking about what kinds of fish to get. I'd like something visually cool for my son to watch, like some small, bright schooling fish. The near obligatory clown (or pair if my tank would support that kind of load) and a rock dweller of some kind.

That one sounds like a typical mantis.
