My ORA Valida tri look like #7 not #5-I have SPS that look llike 5 but not the Valida-


Nice stuff you have-question for ya, is the star fish safe for the corals? I thought I heard as a rule "bumpy" starfish bad, "smooth" starfish good-


Regardless good looking set up, some of those look like they came from Westside???

i have to ask tim at westside next time im there what 5 and 7 are. the star fish i got off of powell ' date='not sure the name of the place. on the reef safe , i have never seen him on anything except the rocks or glass.[/quote']


You may want to ask-its just what I have been told-Like the chocolate chip and anything with "bumps/points" not being coral safe-potentially that is of course
