*&^$@! They don't ship to Cal, presumably because of calpulera regulations.

:furious:

Well, it's rare and pretty decorative. Doesn't need a ton of sand like other species.

I haven't had much luck with H. engelmannii. I've collected floating sprigs and tried them out in a nutrient-rich tank with T5 lighting and both coarse and fine aragonite. The healthy pieces often linger for months but ultimately never grow and fade away. I think these guys don't require powerful lighting since they're often over 3 feet deep in very turbid water, but the key may be their natural substrate, mud. I'm gonna test this out in the near future by setting up a mud tank.

Yeah... that's totally going to happen. All I can do is try to change the legislature, and that's less likely.

I just received my first order from Florida Pets. I got a little bit of star grass and 40 small clams to feed my puffer and my mantis. The puffer is going nuts. She knows she's supposed to do something with them, but isn't sure what. She keeps gnawing on their shells...which is great because I don't want her teeth to get long, but she hasn't managed to crack one yet. The mantis knocked one all the way across it's tank.

 

Everything arrived alive and in good shape and communication with John at Florida Pets was first rate. Very glad to have found a place that sells these tiny clams. Shipping was pocket change.

Just remember to only transport one fish at a time. Transporting two fish at once led to strange results.

I have ordered from Florida pets. I ordered just two star grass flowers. I received the order last Wednesday and the grass has already grown from 2 to 4. It is growing really fast and all look healthy. The service was top notch and the responses were prompt.

Can't you just go collect them? I bought a mushroom coral piece because I saw the micro brittle stars that were white and black stripe. Haven't seem them multiply or if they are still around. They're very elusive in their crevices with their legs just sticking out.

 

I had red ones but my tank went downhill and now almost a year later I see them. Not sure where they went hiding all that time, they use to be all over the tanks and crawling over everything. These seem to hide.
