Well, I have good and and some bad news.
Good: I have ordered my first corals! I ordered three different type of Zoas; 20+ polyps of Whammin Watermelons, 15+ polyps of Blue Stars, and 8 polyps of Orange Delights. They should be here either Tuesday or Wednesday, dependant on when the seller can ship.
Bad: I bought a Skunk Cleaner shrimp, and it died in the tank after I drip acclimated for 2+ hours. I guess from either pH or SG shock, but I just dont understand. $30 down the drain. I dont know if I should be more sad than mad.
I have a list of corals I basically want to have and I know where I want to put them:
-Mushrooms on a rock near the bottom.
-Pulsing Xenia, which I'm sure I'm going to be run over eventually since these grow like a weed. I'm going to get it to attach to my wall, hopefully.
-Maybe some Rics if I have room.
-I might get a frag of M. Digitata or birdsnest. No idea on that yet still. I have to ask arond and study on that.
-Baby Plate coral. My LFS got a new shipment of some *really* nice ones, only at $35. Really good price for this thing.
-Possibly a Polyp rock. Again, LFS has one with probably 25+ polyps at $20.
-I want to get Sun Corals, but I need to make sure I will be willing to feed it, and be able to have someone take care of them if I ever go on Vacation.
-Other corals I have room for them.
-And last but not least, Zoas.
I want to completley fill this with corals (mostly softies, with LPS mixed in, and maybe SPS).
Next photo update will be when I get my zoas opened up.
