The Gonzo's Spicey Lemon Favia is soooooooo sexy. For those of you who are getting Thursday delivery, you should add it to your box if you don't have it already!

 

Enabler!

I might have to grab a few of the small racks. Which ones do people recommend? Ideally sticking it onto side of my 20" long tank.

OceanBox Designs just came out with a really cool one- slim and 4-6 plugs.

 

For larger racks I recommend BlackRockReef. Super strong magnets and high quality from what I've seen.

Aww, I got really excited and they ended up being on hiatus?

My 'Captain Saltys' rack from ebay is holding up pretty awesomely. The magnets are strong and coated so they can be placed underwater as well as on the outside of the glass. I ordered another rack from them this time around.

 

I also got the Oceanbox Designs rack, and it should be arriving either today or tomorrow. And then these.

Anyone know if it's signature required? I might be out for about 30 minutes around the time the package comes...

What a day to say the least. Will give you the short story and some pictures.

 

Fedex tracking said my package was delivered at 10:04 AM. Look outside and nothing is there. Call up fedex and they tell me to look around at other houses. Looked around to no avail, so while still on the phone we filed a claim.

 

12:00 PM I get a call saying that it was a temporary driver and that they cannot reach her at the moment to see where she left the package.

 

6:00 PM rolls around "Jane" calls me back from fedex. We were on a first name basis by now... "We know the general area of your package and are sending a driver to pick it up and redeliver".

 

7:45 PM Corals Arrive!!!!

 

7:45:47 PM

 

Never Opened a box ups fast in my life.

After acclimating for about 20 minutes and dipping. Everything was starting to open up within minutes of the entering the tank. These pics were taken late in the evening, so they are very blue heavy. You can get the picture though. The zoos weren't fully open yet so no pics.

I didn't want to add it up either. Lol. I don't want to know. If you have to ask how much you can't afford it... maybe that's why I've been buying only water lately

I don't feel guilty about this sale at all after seeing what people were spending on the WWC cyber Monday sale. People were dropping will over $1,000 lol. Some guy had bought like three different bounce shrooms on 'sale' at $500 each..

 

Thx for feedback on the racks. My concern had always been lighting on the edge of tank where rack would be. Just got my nanobox duo I bought from a nr member, light coverage no longer an issue lol. New light today, new Corals Thursday.. Good tank week.

 

Will have to try the mag float diy for a temporary rack. Have a mag I don't use anymore already.

I went to Lowes, bought a couple of ceramic magnets ( the rectangle ones are STRONG!, black plastic coat spray, and superglue. I had egg crate. painted it all black and placed in the tank. I should have cleaned the edges up but could not get to my dremel.

I have 21 frags on it ( yes between LC and Saltcritters I now have 21 more frags)

I don't get the hype around bounces.

Just got my Duo last week. My corals have never been happier.

 

My order should be arriving today. If I get time between errands, acclimation, & watching the kid I will try to post some pictures as well.

...A 'Delivery Exception'.

 

Because the package got there 'after courier dispatch'.

 

I am so unamused.

Good luck getting your corals!

IME this generally delays delivery by a whole day. See if you can get someone at your local hub on the phone and stress that they are alive. You may have to go pick them up.

I'm going to call, but this address gets multiple shipments in a day; stuff usually only gets delayed by a couple of hours.
