Pics!

One thing that really excites me about getting a bigger tank is that I can buy a few boxes of LR online and see what I get. Picking out LR at the LFS is so boring. I swear all of the stores around here pick all of the cool things off the live rock before customers get to buy it

I want to see too!

I agree, I think we are going to drive to LR.com here in Florida to get mine if they allow... everything here in Jacksonville looks like base rock... nothing, , no color, no visible life, natta, zilch! And at $8.99 lb they aren't getting my money. ICK!

...Besides... a good excuse for the hubby and I to get a weekend away before the new baby comes .. hehehe!

Pictures soon right?!

Ended with with several mantis shrimp, lots of stars, shrimp of which I have no idea on the I.D. and I have a tub full of crabs that I cant id as well. I didnt dip the rock, just dumped it in the tank

I just got 30 lbs today also. DHL delivered about 11:00am, But a half dozen dead crabs and shrimp in the bottom of the bag anyway. Guess flying to denver in feb may have been to cold. Amazing how much life is there though. I found two ghost shrimp and put them right in my Fuge.
One little crab that I saw ran into the rock even deeeper and I couldn't get him out. Probably many more.

We looked it over pretty good and pulled out/ off what we could see. I know their were a ton of critters that made it in the tank but I just decided to not dip the rock and contend with the stuff at a later point. I cant belive how many feather dusters and the like that are on their rock. I got 4 60 pound boxes = 240 pounds
Whats the best way to ID the crabs that I have?
I'm going to the lfs to get some more snails and hermits. What is the best recomendation for the hermits?
I told Mike at liverocks.com that I wanted a few big pieces and boy did we get some. I got one rock that I bet was 35 pounds and perfectly fit around one of my overflows. It was L shaped and I got another that was close in weight that was over 2 feet in lenght. I'll keep you posted.

Wait a few days on this for the tank to stabilize a bit from all of that new rock, then go for small clean up crew to start.
