    Hello Noob and welcome to the site! Your tank sucks. Did you do ANY research before you set it up and added all those animals?!?! I don't even have the energy to go into how I REALLY feel about your tank!!! ;)

    I have a question: Do you live in a funeral home? Second picture down. Aren't those the types of arrangements they put on graves?

    That's where I used to get flowers for my ex from, I'd just wait till the end of a funeral and grab the arrangement and go to her house :D\

    The tank looks great Reeffreak, do you have anything planned for stocking it yet?

    I am so jealous of your blastos! How many polyps were there when you bought them? How long did it take for them to grow to so many?

    I just got the blastos so I'm not sure.It's about 35+ polyps which cost 150 buckaroos,I probably got robbed but I had to have them.All I ever seen were 2-3 polyp frags before those.

    Dude you did not get robbed at all. Generally, they are $10 to $20 a polyp.

    Oh yeah. Amazing price. I've never even seen a blasto COLONY for sale. I bought two (expensive) polyps for $30 each about 3 months ago... In three months, they have produced two new polyps total. It's going to take forever for them to become that size!
