View Full Version : New Saltwater Tank in Colorado

02/22/2017, 07:07 AM

After caring for freshwater tanks since I was a child, I finally decided to take the plunge and try saltwater. I researched for a good 6 months or so before settling on TBS for live rock. Bought the package for my 60g tank and just got part 2 yesterday. Anyone worried about the shipping process shouldn't stress about it at all. All of my boxes arrived in perfect condition without any hassle.

Got a ton of extra hitchhikers on the rock, like an arrow crab, porcelain crab, mithrax crabs, snails, brittle stars, anemones, feather duster worms, tons of sponges, sea urchin, etc. In part 2, Richard included a ton of extra critters like a large decorator crab, flame scallop, 2 large anemones, corals and sponges.

Here are a few pictures from my newly set up tank.

And Colorado springs has always been a hard airport to ship to, involving three transfers and overnight travel...however Delta now has flights that get it there the same day I ship it, which is pretty outstanding service from them.

And that green flower anemone is really purty!
I collect those down in the Keys, but greens are pretty rare...
