I just picked them up from DHL finally worst carrier Ever. But very nice pieces and I got about 7 pieces 4 large piece and 3 almost softball size pieces looks great I got them soaking in SW as we speak but I had to rinse them off because if it being banged around so much from the Carrier having it for 3 days at my local Distrabution Center, if anyone is using DHL for Shipping don't there Service SUCKS they could not deliver my shipment ontime if there life depended on it.. But I am happy with my pick up's great piece's

It does not help that they are exiting the North American market, for domestic shipping...

Just in time. You sure that wasn't Santa?

Just remember, those are going to need to be cured. Marco base is notorious for dried up organics. Which is what makes them so good also :p

Merry Christmas Tankster \

Ho Ho Ho

If it's an already established tank, place in a bucket with a power head and heater.. and let run till the Amm/Nit/Nat cycle runs it's course, doing PWC's along the way. Skimmer optional.

If you're cycling your tank at the same time.. Plop plop in the tank and cycle away. Ammonia source provided free of charge.

Here are The Pictures as Promised

Well after day one I check my parameters just to see if there was any ammonia readings and sure enough there was. 0.50ppm It was a surprising spike after only being in SW for only 15hrs. My nitrate and Nitrite were both at zero still. I did a water change this morning to make sure I get out all the ammonia thats been released in the water since I am not running a skimmer. PH and heater only. But here are what the Beauties look like... I will do another water change in 4 days and cheak parameter readings.

Enjoy.



Some close ups.
