  • rogue its time to tell me

    okay Rogue i am worried about it... what ever saltwater thing you sent me showed up looking like liverock rubble... I assume its a coral of some kind... I'll get some pictures when my phone charges... I am currently acclimating it still now in case whatever it is is still alive... just please tell me what it is...

    btw you say you can't keep snails alive lol... found a baby ramshorn in the crypts ;D

    It's a Palythoa. Might take a couple days to open up. Just make sure you put it right side up.

    I have ONE live snail and that's a giant blue ramshorn. Perhaps it multiplied when I wasn't looking.

        Doesn't look so good. Must have been banged around a lot in shipping. The frag piece is pointing right side up in the picture. The little blueish, fleshy things are the polyps. You need to make sure they stick up. I'd only take the largest pieces and throw away the rest.

            I swear postal workers practice juggling with boxes marked "FRAGILE" and "THIS SIDE UP."

              according to my aunt (who works as a truck driver for USPS) thats actually not to far off base... she told me i would be surprised half the stuff she sees them do to the packages...

                    Real simm. Low to moderate flow, start at bottom of tank to adjust to new light. Most light for food, but I think light weekly spot feeding with phytoplankton is suggested
