When im satisfied with the rocks where they are and when it clears up more then i will! Definetly tomorrow! And plus its nothing really special...Just a little first project type thing.
That's how this salt thing generally works. People that have spent thousands of dollars and countless hours on their tanks love bringing in new recruits. I know I give away extra equipment and corals all the time.
What type of star did you get? As far as plants go they are all really macro algae. Large plant like algae. Some are caulerpa, red fern, hylameda, bottle brush, grape, cheato. They grow ultra fast. Theonly one that doesn't is the hylameda (or money plant) and it needs a lot of extra calcium.
