    Thanks. I was amazed at Mikes selection. Has everything!
    Yes in that shopping complex tucked in.
    I'll only get my corals from Mike. Besides great selection he really helped me and answered my questions.
    For fish I usually go to Nemos now known as Natual Pets in Norristown. Also have great people working there.
    Easy coast the place in Maryland?

    I'm going to go back soon and get a Green star polyp. Saw a tank that had it on back glass. Looked like grass. Apparently these grow well and easy to take care of, but don't spread or move.

    GSP spreads like crazy. It will basically grow on anything and is indestructible.

    Oh it spreads alright! It will also kill anything in its path. Mine started as a 3" frag a few years back and now looks like this. It's now covered half of my return section which is what I wanted. This pic is actually a few months old so almost the entire return is covered now. 20140531_195526.jpg

    Whoa!! That looks awesome. Are you happy with it?
    I chose wrong words. Yes it spreads but what I meant was it was jump around tank. Grow and spread are same to me. Sorry for confusion. My bad.
    But is GSP ok or bad like Xenia?
    I love the way it looks

    Thanks ball game. Unfortunately that goby died a couple weeks back, I had him for 3 years so it sucks. I really like the GSP and the vision I had for it is coming along. I didn't realize how deadly it was until I saw it with my own eyes though. I'm actually redoing the entire tank and using Tongan stick rock to give my acros new homes since they have out grown there plugs. I'm keeping the GSP in the same corner with nothing near it. It's easy to trim back because it's like a purple mat and I just use a razor to trim it. In no way do I think it's like xenia but good husbandry is a must as with everything else in our tanks. Also, my GSP gives me the first sign of parameter swings so I don't feel it's indestructible. Hold out for GSP that you really want, I prefer the neon kind;)
