I'm worried about that Nem, too after what happened to the trigger. That button coral is beautiful. My reef tank is only 28g, so I haven't bought a coral in a year or so. And the four fish seem satisfied. When I send you your present, I'll have an excuse to move things around.

Got two cinnamon clowns today, a brittle star and a bunch of snails. Clowns look good, brittle star is shaky, the fighting conch isn't fighting, and my Astraea star snails have mostly died. When I opened the bag, the water was milk colored and stunk to high heaven. Wonder what gave me the idea they might not be alive? Will call LiveAquaria tomorrow.

They do look good. They're young, so not at full color but cute and active as they can be. Yeah, thought I'd give everything a chance to settle tonight.

Hey, has anyone ever had problems with LiveAquaria's shipments of inverts? I have lost nearly all I ordered. Of course they reimbursed me for all of it, but it seems strange. When I opened the bag of spiny star Astraeas, the smell almost knocked me down. Only one survived that and nine were DOA. And I am very careful when I acclimate and have never had trouble before. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had the same thing happen, because I want to place another order and don't want the same thing happening.

Ok. I went ahead and ordered more. Order will be here Wednesday morning. I am sure that was a one time thing. I will be especially careful during acclimation. Thanks.

New critters are here and in the tank. Ordered 8 bumblebee snails, 10 banded trochus and another fighting conch. Lights are currently off on the tank for another hour. I can see the conch, but it hasn't moved yet.
