View Full Version : Yeahhhh, I have some corals!

Well today I bought my first corals! :19:

They are all soft corals. I would take pictures but I have not found my camera since last week when I went to the lake :'-( anyways, I bought a daisy polyp, Zoanthid, and a leather. She also gave me some tiny ones for free thumbs2:

I also bought some Nassarius Vibex snails. It felt good because I got a discount on the coral and she gave me 2x the amount of snails too! I talked with her for over an hour about all kinds of stuff including fish.... :hmm3grin2orange: What a good relaxing way to spend a Friday evening after work.

I did a very slow acclimation of the coral to my aquarium and it has only been 30min and they are beginning to open!!!! Yeah!

I am excited and even more addicted. I will see how these will do and keep reading so I can add some more later on.

Any thoughts, suggestions, maybe I missed something?

Hehe, I made another post :14:

I am trying to get my friend to come over with his d300 camera so I can get some awesome pics. I think I will have to buy a new camera because mine is gone :-(

It was great waking up and seeing coral and snails in my aquarium. I just don't want to think about the money that I have put in it so far but it has been worth it.
