Hey everyone,

I am expecting my Live Rock to arrive tomorrow. I am really excited to see what type of critters arrive in the mix. What are some of the cool critters you have all got with your live rock shipment? Let me know to feed my excitement :)

I already told phil this but the last shipment my dad got of live rock he ended up with a blue ring octopus! he was cool lookin even though he was still kind of small my dad sold him for a bit over 100 bucks! he was cooler than crap.

Let me see, ohter than lots of pods I got a few fiji crabs, a brittle star or two, an sps coral that didn't make the cycle, and beware of mejano or aptasia anemone's. It really depends from where in the ocean you get your rock from. Most of mine is fiji along with some tonga branch before they stopped exporting that stuff. I would like to try some uncured carribean in a community tank since I hear they have lot's of diverse wild life in and on them.

Sponges, crabs, tiny feather dusters, little bristle worms, and a scallop. Live rock is so much fun!
