Corals hitch hike? I am really liking salt water. You don't just get pest snails as a hitch hikers :D

Are all those good? Off the top of my head the good are:
Sea Star
Feather Duster
Snails
Shrimp
Coral
Hermits/Crabs

Bad:
Flatworms


Thats all I can think of. Haven't much research on that ATM. Been busy shopping. Fun.

I'm leaning to red spotted, red lines and green clown gobys and tank bred neon blue gobies. They are so eye catching. Are there any gobies that camouflage really well?

Some snails, some of anything to be frank about it, yoiu just never know what your going to get. Even Bristle Worms play their roll in helping maintain the tank.

I was actually reading that site when I checked to see if there was a new post here. Those worms are weird looking. Which I like.
Well, I hope I'll get good stuff, but you know how that will end up *crazed smile*
Will 20lbs of sand be enough? I am going with some kind of goby for sure, and I'll decide on the inverts after the fish. I cant beleive how little the gobies are! Adorable!!
My mom likes the pert about not as many water changes and not as many plug-ins. :D I is one happy girl right now!

I'l finish reading tomorow, have to go. And my BFF joined, her UN is Briecheese2414.

20lbs will be more than enough sand.

I'm going to a pet stroe that sells marine fish and coral and stuff next week end, going to buy FW plants while I'm there but will check out the salt water section while I'm there.

And another question, if I do get a hitch hiker that are predatory or dangerous, how should I treat it? Sell it saying that this creature can cause harm? Or use the clove oil method? I would rather to never ever have to do the clove oil, as I hate killing something because it is not wanted. So putting it in its own container until I find a suitable place for it the best option?
Then again I could always filet them . . .

Ummmm, filet them, ah, yea thats what I was thinking J/K. Yea remove the lil bugger, and alot of people wiill throw them into their sumps or see if the LFS is looking for free take ins. But most do the bye-bye method.

I'll def try the LFS and Craigslist first. I cant kill something just because. Its hard enough doing that do a fish that is suffering.
Since I am such a noob, on Craigslist would you expect the person to pay for it or would you give it away for free?
LOL, my dad would love the filet part.
