Part two of the Tampa Bay Saltwater package is in the tank! This rock and the critters are incredible. I can't believe all of the life in the tank. We have all sorts of cool hitchhikers including urchins and even a clingfish. All sorts of crabs (arrow, porcelain and many hermit crabs)...
I am about to set up my first reef tank. It is a stock Red Sea 130 (34 gallon total volume/29 gallon tank volume). I was thinking of purchasing “the package” from tbsaltwater.com.

1 Serpent or Brittle star per 50 gal.
I am new to TRT and I am thrilled that there is a mantis forum here.

Ok last night all 3 of my brittle stars were just fine and ate small peice of shrimp. I did notice that one of the stars had lost part of it's leg. Today when I came home I found the same one with no legs and just his body with a couple of stubs. I thought he was dead, so when I tried to get him...

We also had a well-attended panel discussion on coral reef ecosystem

In a month or two I will be driving down to Orlando, FL. I thought there was a online site that sold LR that you could hand pick if you stop by there wherehouse. Does anyone know the name of this place or maybe another LFS in FL that has good LR?
