    I ordered some fish/inverts from a different vendor... nothing too unusual, but nice to get something new... and... you can use your new discount if you were lucky enough to get a UPC. I'm not positive the barcode works, so you may have to enter the code at the bottom or have them to enter it as...

    If there's any group orders going in the near future for snails/crabs could someone PM me? I don't have access to the member forums any more so I can't really see when things are going on. Thanks.

    Ok i love inverts more than fish, some people say i am crazy but i like the creepy crawly things in my tank. Right now i have some blue leg hermits, a serpent star, many Astraea snails, Feather duster, coral banded shrimp. What other inverts would be good to add to my 72gallon reef? Right...

    Ordered some zoa frags and just got the notice that they've been delivered to my house! Only problem is that I'm at work :doh: . Guess I will have to try to run home during lunch and get them into the tank :banana:

    This is a photo of a banded serpent star from my old reef tank. I think its a pretty cool picture, other's opinions may differ ;) If I remember correctly, this shot was taken in macro mode on my digital camera in conjunction with some close-up filters and flourescent filters. Enjoy! Aleks...

    does anyone have an invert coral only tank with no fish? i was thinking of just going with corals and inverts like shrimp, crabs, and a banded serpent starfish in my 10g would the tank be healthier like this with no fish?

    Hi guys. As most of you know, I'm cycling up my first tank and I'm trying to decide if the time is right to get a clean-up crew into the tank.The tank's been cycling since Jan. 14. At this point, I saw a bloom of blue-green algae that's already gone away and now I'm seeing filamentous algae...

    Today I was at a Local LFS and came across a Beatiful BLue Linka Star. I held of on buying it because I know nothing of their requirements and or if they are reefsafe and will they be ok with a black banded serpent star in the same tank. I realy love the color of these guys and would like to...

    Was thinking of buying this cleanup crew set (the Reef Relief 50gal). Would any of the creatures included be a bad choice for a beginner? Also, if you have dealt with Flying Fish Express, what are your impressions? TIA!!
