I'm pretty new to the forum (I've spent a lot of time reading and you guys have helped me out before!).
I bought a pearl bubble coral about 3 weeks ago, and seems to be quite happy, but I noticed today that a single polyp is hanging down. I'm not sure If I should be concerned...
1.) Buy the Hood from LRN (done)
2.) Buy skilter 400 ( other reasons for this.. relax guys)**1

5) begin the build on...

Ok I tried to be nice and give him a chance thinking he wasnt the main culprit but after having gone nuts tonight on my leathers, pagoda, button polyps and my nice new zoo rock (that a few new polyps are missing now). I am not happy at all i wanted to rip him out of there. I put up Chuck's trap...

I got these from our friend here on TRT the other day. It was the PPE he was selling last week. It came nicely in a proper shipping way but the problem was, there was no oxygen in the bag.

Mine? My cleaner shrimp....I just can't get enough of him. He's so friendly and playful...eats right out of my hand. If I have to put my hand in the tank for any reason, he hops on for a ride. Just love him! :)
