I got my rocks and I am so far pretty impressed. There were a couple of things I was not too happy about as far as how it was packed (Not wrapped in damp newspaper and no heat packs) but everything seems to have made the trip ok.
I saw in a previous post that a user received all small pieces, and I believe I know why. They called me and told me they were out of rock due to the overwhelming response on the sale on weds and said they would be receiving a new shipment on thursday and would overnight it to me so I would still have it by friday. You probably received the last of what was left from their existing stock.
I did receive my order on friday and I had almost all LARGE pieces (See photos below). unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control ( The fish store was out of salt, Imagine that.) I did not get to put the rock in till saturday afternoon. It does not seem to have suffered too bad due to the delay though.
On a side note, I drove all the way to Idaho (7 hours each way) to get my sand from a LFS
there (ok, not a Local Fish store for me
) and they were FANTASTIC!
I purchased 450 pounds of southdown, A HUGE lionfish that was just beautiful and healthy, A really cool porcupine puffer that has the coolest disposition(He will chase a piece of krill I stick into the end of a piece of rigid airline all around the tank), 20 narssisus snails and 20 blue leg hermit crabs, a large starter culture of green water, and about 25 empty snail shells for the crabs to grow into. All of this only cost me around $138.00!!!
Ok, Hopefully I can figure out how to attach images into this message so you can see my live rock pictures and my cloudy tank full of rock (you can barely see some of the rock in the tank)
Here is the first box I opened
Here is the second box I opened
This picture is of one rock! its almost the same size of the box! I recieved about 4 of these monsters, but this was the largest.
And this last photo is my 120 gallon milk shake with a side of rocks...
