yea, i can see that i have a shell from a snail... but no snail. and the worm that was there before is nowhere to be seen.... oh well, i'm sure he is around somewhere on that rock. I'm hoping some mushrooms will maybe grow on my rock. *sigh* only time will tell...

If you haven't seen the mushroom yet, it won't be on there later.

You can buy mushrooms for kinda cheap at your LFS and let them grow. that and zoo polyps will spread onto liverock quickly. They might be your best bet if you want some color on your rock.

Thanks, that will help me out. i do want to add some colour, and i'd like to have something easy to care for and inexpensive. the live rock that i have has lots and i mean lots of holes and crevices so is that a good thing?

What kind of lighting is on your tank?

Holes are a good thing. Zoos and mushrooms don't need them, but they are still good nonetheless. HTH

Hmm. Without upgraded lighting, I would hold off on the addition of corals. They need a good strong light to grow. Try and get atleast 2 wpg of PC lighting, if you wish to add corals.
