Those bartletts and that tang are awesome!

Why'd you drop the bio-pellets? Stripping too many nutrients for the softies?

Stripping all the nutrients full stop. Softies went first then the SPS started to pale out. Looking a bit better now that I've taken the pellets out and started feeding the tank to bump the nutrients back up (filter feeder mix, clam food and amino acids).

Phosphate etc still undetectable.

Courier company have lost my florida's. They were sent overnight and were supposed to arrive yesterday. I am sad.

I am now expecting a box of cold dead smoosh to arrive on maybe Monday or Tuesday. Either that or when the box starts to stink out the depot they'll return it to sender and Ru will get it back at his facility.

Bet the slack ##### at the depot didn't even look for the package, it'd be pretty freakin obvious with livestock and fragile stickers all over it.

I am doomed to never have cool floridas.

On the bright side for me, Ru had only asked for payment upon successful delivery and is going to take the fall for them going missing.

Sounds like a good guy. I'm sad/guilty that my LFS has a tank dedicated to Ricordia's. They've got 100's.

Heh, it's all good, I know they're easily obtainable over there.

In comparison, I only know of two people in New Zealand who have Floridas.

Courier parcel arrived today.

Stone cold after a weekend 'lost' in the freezing cold depot.

However, there are still discernible florida and yuma shaped blobs on the rocks. I hold out some hope...

Nope. Had a pay on arrival arrangement so there's that to be thankful for.

Haha random post of the day goes to Spencer7.

Sorry that the rics melted, real shame as I know they were going to be amazing. Hopefully you can get some more in at some point.

That sucks you lost the rics. You just have the one in your tank now, right? Got an updated FTS?

Cheers, guys. It does suck and I am feeling mighty sorry for myself about it lol.
