What can I say? Just Awesome!!!! Thank you so much Richard!, After a Relaxing day at Anclote key, (we where lucky to find that visibility was around 6 ft on the northern tip on of the island. On the further north sand bar vis was near 0.) I was able to pickup my 10 lbs order from Tampa Bay Saltwater. Thank you so much Richard for the opportunity of picking up the order and avoid the stress of shipping.

Arrived at home and unpacked for my new 29 Biocube, the box was very nice presented and no leaks:

Inside the box a heavy duty box with filled with sea water and 3 nice pieces of Rock: (sorry for quality they where taken with cel at night:

Have to say that no odor or smell came out of the bag and the rock just smelled like ocean.

After removing the rock noticed 2 small crabs and one little brittle star at the bottom of the bag, rescued them and put them in the tank with the rock, they where healthy, for some people they can be pest so far for me and the kids is awesome to have them.
The bigger piece of Rock have a nice orange sponge that i don't know if it will survive in an aquarium, the other piece of rock have a cluster of barnacles that neither know if will survive in the tank. This is why i bought from TBSW and can say it blow my expectations.

This is a shot of the tank starting to clear up after the inital dust storm:

I recommend Richard and his team 100%.

Tomorrow after the water clear and do the aquascaping, i will post some pictures of the difference between the "live rock" i bought at the LFS and the "LIVE ROCK" from Tampa Bay Saltwater.

Thank you
