  1. is the tape over the shipping label? if so, i'd say it was fedex that did it and taped it up so it wouldn't get salt everywhere....i deal with UPS and fedex every single day...the delivery guys are always great and always complain about how bad the distribution centers are...i'd call DFS and tell them and see if they will handle it for you and i'm sure they will.

    i'm letting it go for now just to see what happens....only topping off, no water changes or heavy filter cleaning...should be interesting....i've still been putting in bubble algae and it's not growing lol i might go get some nasty live rock and see what happens

    I'm with you on that. i like the floridas better then yumas. and that superman came from mr.coral....actually a lot of it did haha but the best pieces i have came from the LFS's I find gems at the stores sometimes and i jump on it lol one has a green birdsnest that i'd love to have but i don't know if it would do well in my tank since all but two of the 6 SPS i've had have survived...and not very good lol

    Emerald crabs have been doing a little bit of work with the bubble algae but i'm worried it might be growing faster then they are eating it....otherwise everything looks great and most of the coral is growing a lot and very colorful. I'm not doing too well with my SPS. i have 4 SPS in there now and two of them are pretty much dead. one is alive and looks fine but it's not very colorful and the other one is a white color, always has been, and it appears to be encrusting the plug and has little arms popping out so i'm happy with that one. my red mushroom has turned itself into 4 mushies! i'm very happy about that as well as my green striped mushroom has put out another and i discovered that a mushroom that i thought was lost in the tank found a spot and it doing great...not in a good visible spot but it looks nice. Hammer and frogspawn are doing wonderful! and i lost one of the green chromis. don't know where i want to put the hammer for its final spot but i kinda like it in the sand where it is so maybe i'll leave it there. AND....there are zoas EVERYWHERE and it's amazing haha
  9. rapid led bulbs are great imo i have 3 of them lol
