well...I will only bye fish from them...they know nothing about saltwater even though it takes majority of the store...I might order some when I have a real problem. I also was trying to identify and found they are striped trochus snails. The are all close to each other and haven't explored much of the tank. They are very cool looking though. So yes partial but I have no huge algea problem so they are fine for the moment.

In a week or 2 I'll see about getting Ceriths and a Skunk shrimp...maybe a Mushroom or a zoa if I feel Me and the tank are ready...and my wallet. Only 1 snail has gone onto another rock in the tank(The biggest one). Also they are striped Trochus snails if I did not mention already

And for a fish the goby I wanted was 50 bucks at the store and more online so I might discard the idea and get a cheaper shrimp goby for a pistol shrimp. So my new thoughts are either Randall's Goby, Yellow Rose Goby, Pink Spotted Watchman Goby, Orange Spot Shrimp Goby, or Diamond Watchman Goby with a caribean pistol or candy stripe pistol shrimp. Thoughts? This is long down the road.

Okay...some of you will be VERY happy when you see this post!

I went to my LFS and got some great help for once, Got ceriths. I was planning for a skunk shrimp, BUT they were $30 and I saw a special on fireshrimp I could not resist. I got a fire shrimp for $25! that is down from the normal $40!!!

And yes it gets BETTER! I met up with a fellow teen reefer from another forum and he gave me 3 FREE frags! He gave me some Fire and Ice Zoas, some Green and blue stripe mushrooms, and some GSP that I kind of ruined on the switch to the tank...but there is at least one polyp I have hope for so I'll see where it goes.

Shrimp and snails acclimating now pics later.(P.S. my photo taking skills ruin the look of the corals that are just beautiful in real life)

Tomorrow first thing is pics...Lights are off now and more and more of the GSP is showing up! My fire shrimp has found his place under a rock and my ceriths are not really moving. Fed the shrimp a little bit of brine shrimp so he wouldn't get hungry and turn on my new zoas, and because idk if he had eaten anything at the LFS ever. I am very happy the tank is very stunning.
