    I don't know much about corals, yet. But, I hope the new ones get better for you. Most of your pictures came out good, too!!

    I think my biggest issue is the new ones are just so friggen little...very hard to place and when I do think I have a spot along comes a snail or crab and sends it for a tumble. The one ric some how got off of the fishing line it was tied to a piece of rubble with and is now down in a hole in a bigger rock. I think I will leave it in there and see what happens, at least it wont float away. I think I just need to leave them alone and wait and see. I found another rock with bubble algae coming back on it so its now in the back yard. Must have been 20+ little bubbles. I dont think that rock is going to make it back into the display. I re did the look of the aquascape and I think I like it better with out it. Leaves me a good spot for another large mushroom rock. I will look around in the next few weeks and see if I can find one local. This has frustrated me to the point that I will probably not buy any more frag packs. Instead of my tank calming me I have been on the verge of extreme violence...I dont like feeling that way. So I will buy bigger colonies from now on and if I have to pay for a little shipping so be it.

    very nice :) Those orange ones are wow. I usually super glue my new frags down because my clownfish is an asshat and loves to hide and kill my frags.

    Ya i am thinking I need to get some rubble and glue them..I got a email from reefs to go apologizing for the screw up in shipping. Asking me what made it or didnt. Would be nice if I could get replacements for the stuff that didnt open or was just well a shriveled mess.. I responded to them tonight so i guess we will see..

    I use the JB waterweld putty to secure frags to rocks, works great and is so easy to use.
    Good luck with customer service, crossing my fingers for you.

    I still have three that have never opened one that melted into nothing those where all zoahs. The green stripped shroom has shriveled up to the size of the head of a pin. The red shroom is right next to it and is open the size of a nickle. The green shroom had very little water in the bag was leaking in the package.

    Shrooms are pretty tough IME and so are zoas, hopefully they will pull through

    Oh my little ricordia mushroom is missing...I had it in a hole on a small rock, seemed to be doing really well, now cant find it...When the order comes in Tuesday I am going to super glue everything....will have some different colored zoahs on the same rocks. Maybe if and when they grow out will have some interesting combos....Little frags are going to be the death of me...Next purchases will not be small frags....
