I'm from Queens so that would be quite a drive From what I heard about them they are dependable so I'm going to order from them tonight. My only real decision now is to order 2 or 3 corals. I need to order tonight because I just so happen to be off from work this Friday so I need the shipment to come in then. Would I be ok introducing supercolored zoos, a toadstool, and a candy cane coral all at once in a 75 gal with no fish for the time being (read above) or other corals? TIA.

Corals don't add a whole lot to your bio load. Don't let them touch and you should be just fine. I've added 2 corals plenty of times and frags by the 10 pack

Make sure you have some water and carbon handy just in case things start to look weird. The leather will look great when you put it into your tank then it will shrivel up and look like you've killed it. Then it will shed a thin film/skin and look great again. Part of the growing process, try not to freak out when it happens! LOL! (Can you tell I speak from experience?!)

Keep us posted. Can you post pics? I am a "proud papa" who loves to post pics, so you'll be seeing mine whether you want to or not!!

Is it snowing in Queens? HEre in Poughkeepsie we're expecting what we hope will be winter's last hurrah ... 6-10 inches of snow

Oh well, I'll just do research and a water change and admire my tank if we have a snow day (I'm a high school teacher).

Good luck with your order.

Whoah, keep it to yourself Poughkeepsie! I've seen enough snow for one year and am SO looking forward to spring. These 50* days have me spoiled. We had some good size hail balls around 5 though.

It was hailing here before, then it turned over to sleet, and now its raining here so no accumulations thankfully. I ordered a 5"-7" supercolered zoo colony, a 4"-6" candy cane, and a 3"-5" Toadstool shroom. I had to call the order in because I was getting some server errors whe I was checking out online which actually happened to be a really good thing since I was able to request my preference in color for the zoos. I will definitely post picks when I get everything in on Friday. Thanks again.
