No I got this guy and the corals from a great local saltwater store called Aquarium Arts in Tempe, az. Very good prices too this guy was $3.99 and the corals were each $19.

Looks like my tank now has quite a few brittlestars of some sort they have fairly long red/white banded legs and are living inside the live rock. Occasionally I see the whole stars but usually just the legs sticking way out. Pretty cool.

Damsel is out and in other tank now (not worth showing pictures of yet there's nothing in it yet). Small rocks in bottom are going to go in filter area later. Some more live rock and tank rearranged, pair of false perc clowns in now:

check this out Zoa on top of a hitchhiking crab

It's a greenish color I'm assuming maybe a baby Emerald? It's munching on some green bubble algae some I guessing that's what it is. I looked in the tank and noticed about 5 polyps walking across the rock. I was able to snap this shot as the tiny crab goes about cleaning the rock apparently oblivious to the fact it has polyps attached to it's back:



There's one of the many brittle stars that are this rock sticking its leg out on the right. In the picture of the rock in the post I put up above you can see this crab with the zoa is about in the middle of the rock down and to the left of the hermit crab as it's walking across to where I snapped this picture.

I don't know what it is, something dead hehe. When I went to pick up the percs I wanted to buy another 15 lbs of live rock for the second tank ($2.50 a lb hard to pass up for cured rock that had been in his aquariums for years) but he was out I asked him if I could have all the chunks and rubble and those were twigs were attached. They are strong couldn't break them off so I just threw them in there for now. Saw some other hitchhikers too. There's a white and brown crab living in a hole in one of the rocks only comes out at night and stays right by the hole. I saw a white sea slug of some sort when just the moon lights were on cruising around. Kept an eye on him he wasn't trying to eat corals so I guess I'll leave him in there. That crab with the polyps is all over the tank funny you just got look for the polyps.
