Hope everything made it alright as it is really cold here. I used a heat pack and styrofoam. I was kinda worried about the tiny starfish but it sounds like everything is good.If you like those star polyps I have at least 4 types and can throw some your way next time.

Everything made it here just fine and all acclimated to my aquarium very well. I'll get some shots of the polyp you sent me in the morning when the lights come on and after it blooms.

I actually wanted to get more of the star polyps from my LFS when I picked this one up (but it was so damn expensive), so if you want to send me some stars I wouldn't mind

Thanks for reading everyone. More updates will come soon!

Star polyps should not be expensive as they are almost weed like.I suppose it really depends on where you are at as far as demand and rarity go but generally speaking faster growing corals fetch lower prices. Also I like to grow out corals,I think it is fun,and I find that if the coral is going to do well in your tank then all you need is a small piece and some patience. If it is not going to do well then no sense in getting a larger chunk.

Thank you! Now that I go back and look at my earlier photos, it's amazing at how much change has occurred.

I need to get with you sometime and see what frags you have for sale. I'd like to start adding more to the aquarium and you're a bit cheaper than my LFS

I'll shoot you a PM here shortly.

Finally starting to get my algae issues under control after quite some time so I feel it's time for some more photos. I'm still playing around with my camera, so they aren't the best photos but these are some shots of how much my corals have grown since my original pictures. Some of these are newer corals that I got from Bert, they look marvelous as well!

Button Polyps and mushrooms. As you can see, I still have some GHA but it's getting much much better!


Gold Polyps (From Bert; They are new additions).


Large mushroom/star polyp colony starting to form in the corner of my tank.


Cactus Coral from Bert (New addition)


Purple Pavona from Bert (New addition). It hasn't came out very much yet but it's getting there! Some of them starting to come out today so we'll see how it works out in the future. That rock was actually covered in GHA about 3 days ago, so huge improvement thus far!


I'm still recovering from my algae screw up, so I'll get some FTS when it's gone completely.

More photos.

This leather was one of my first additions to the tank after I got it cycled, still going strong.



Here's another good shot of the star polyps in the tank.



More Mushrooms;
