What an unbelievable delivery from Richard at Tampa Bay Saltwater! I have started a new Red Sea Max S 650, and I ordered the 150 pound "package" from TB Saltwater. Everything you see in the attached pictures is from them. Part 1 was delivered with tons of hitchhikers - a brittle star in the sand, a couple dozen porcelain crabs, several pistol shrimp, and even a tiger goby, in addition to the amazing truly live rock and sand. I did my tests and waited for an ammonia cycle that just never happened! After 10 days, I contacted Richard for Part 2 and was simply blown away. Richard's signature is to include a bunch of sponges and sea fans with Part 2 - it helps people know that you got the real stuff. Part 2 comes with the blue legs, snails, cucumbers, stars, and shrimp. Don't be intimidated by the blue legs - yes, there are a lot, but they are tiny little guys. Talk about bonus stuff - Richard threw in two flame scallops, three anemones, and even a royal gramma! I'm sure I'm forgetting something....

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Most people try to rush their rock through the cycle, forcing life into their tank, so they can quickly move into fish and coral purchases. Trust me - my tank is so full of life right now that I don't even feel the need to rush off to the LFS!

Thank you, Richard. This is amazing!

NICE! I've got an upgrade to 120 - 150 in the planning stages and "The Package" has already been budgeted for!

I'm jealous! Congratulations

So what am I missing? These posts, obviously supported by TBS appear every few days usually by people with very few posts. Why are they allowed? Is TBS a sponsor? Whats up?

I doubt that is the case here...... ccantwell2001 has been a member since 2009

That's funny. I have been around for awhile(although not a lot of posts). This rock is great.

Wellllll....

It appears individuals setting up new tanks read posts here, see others successes, and are interested in Richard's rock because it's unique, cheaper, and easier to get than cooking dry pukani in a bucket in their backyard.

I am guessing these individuals place orders, and they are shipped to them, and they set up a tank and take photos and thank Richard for his help/service.

I would also venture to guess that TBS is a sponsor.

In other news there is an election this week too.

Dear Windlasher, I assure you I am very real here in Phoenix. I joined in 2009 with my first nano tank and came back recently with my new house and much larger fish tank. Yes, TBS is a sponsor, and yes, this is where you can come for testimonials. There is no big conspiracy going on. PM me if you have any questions about TBS rock. The stuff is amazing!
