so my tank is up and running

i have 35 pounds of LR, in my 32 gallon takn. pictures will come soon but there are already some things alive, including a small snail or hermit that stays in the shadows and lots of these small red creatures (tiny) that swim around in the rocks (amphopods?) My sand bed is quite thick however, are there any side effects to that?

well, he has live rock growing in a small tank upstairs which has lots of great stuff on it, you can just get some from there. Thats his LR only tank but he`ll charge you more for it since its already out of the box. You can also get the closed box but you`ll have to wait a bit longer for that ( placing the orders etc). I also have these wierd thing, looks like a bubble tip anemone but comes out of this tube, its very small. any ideas?

edit: think it may be a polyp

also have found these small white bugs that walk around when the lights are off, a featherduster that opens up when the light is off, and lots of small featherduster lookalikes which are brown in colour covering a rock. Finally i have one orange polyp that opens up especially large during the day and closes up at night? not sure if this is a polyp.
