Got my corals in. A few hours late, but they were fine, all seem happy. Packed in an almost absurd amount of water for such little guys. The holy grail is teeny! But I knew it would be, based on frag plug size and its species.

We had a death in the family and I gotta be honest, I'm pretty upset about it.

I bought a blue tip torch (probably my favorite of the 30 corals I bought). It was center stage in the tank. A few days ago, I woke up to the death spiral monti sitting on top of one of the 2 heads... snail must have dislodged it. I removed it and it clearly did some damage to a part of the torch. Within a day, the entire head died. I did my best to clean everything off of it but woke up today to most of the second head gone too. I've been watching it disappear all day. :(

So sad! This has happened to me a few times, so everything is glued or wedged in my tank. I also don't keep snails or hermit crabs anymore. They knocked my GF's favorite piece into another and it died.

It’s nuts! I have them glued and I’ve started using epoxy to cement some of them in too. This Monti just wasn’t fit flush against the rock and one must have wedged in there and popped it off.

My scarlet reef hermits actually lift things. I've seen them at it- they use their claws to lift small frags or bits of shell to get underneath. It's pretty cool, and makes sense, but it's annoying as heck when they do that to a frag on top of something and it falls off. Hermit crabs, please stop tipping things off the rockwork looking for food underneath them.

So happy with my TSA order! Everything was superbly packaged with no discernible damage to frags.
