Did you get them?
I was literally just commenting on this! Because of work and how bad traffic was I figured the shop would be closed by time I could get there so now I'm going in the morning with the girl I'm dating to pick em up which is actually cool cause she's gonna come back with me after we get them along with the live sand and more live rock for the tank to help set it up with me so we can have a fun activity to do together...also it gave me a chance to clean the tank well today so tomorrow I can just start adding all the necessities...made sure I cleaned the tank up well for them.

I gotta say one thing I really like about R2R is just how supportive the members are here which isn't easy to find these days especially online! Btw, I might actually be able to have the whole system set up by the end of the day with the stars all in the tank! If so, I'll post a few pics for everyone!

I got the stars today. Fromia indica, Fromia milliporella, and Fromia pacifica are all 3 currently being acclimated to to a tank which will be very temporary and then moved to the primary tank as soon as possible. I bought 5 additional pieces of wild collected ocean rock as well. I'll post pics later. Both F. milliporella and F. pacifica appear to be relatively young while F. indica appears to be older.

More live rock is still needed. I haven't weighed it yet to determine the price per pound because I only paid about $3 for each piece. It's not maricultured or anything like that, just wild rock collected from the ocean about a week ago I was told (I believe the Gulf of Thailand which should help since at least 2 of the 3 species are native to Thailand.)
More can always be added later.
