I found a few hitchhikers on this order, as well as having a couple of deaths.

I lost one of the ocellaris to carpet surfing, and the other made it as far as the sump - since then the tank has been covered.

One of the chromis never ate (I offered brine, mysis, and formula 1 pellet and frozen) and died in quarantine. You shipped me an extra, so I still have 3 that are doing well.

Also, three of the mushroom frags died suddenly - fine one day, small puddles of goo the next.

A 4" blue Linckia sea star hitchhiked in on the favites colony - not a specimen I would have ordered given the relative immaturity of my system, but it seems to be doing well. I see it daily after lights out, and it's currently enjoying a piece of table shrimp.

Unfortunately, I also got some less desirable hitchhikers. The pink zoanthid colony came with both zoa eating spiders and a trio of very healthy looking aiptasia. One of the mushroom frags also had some red/brown flatworms.
