Nice spots. I really like that first one!

So basically the payoff for allowing you to collect all day is having to pull an all night-er with her, right? Wink

Nice nice. I'm guessing Lincoln City is outside of Portland somewhere?

Day one of vacation was freaking awesome Smile I got to go collecting along a large rock out cropping just off the beach from the resort we are staying at in Lincoln City. Low tide was at 6:42 at a -.06 and I had sunlight until a little after 5pm then got to go out with flashlights looking.

Didnt find to much with the flashlights that I didnt already find during the day, but I got a bunch of hermit crabs, one purple starfish, one orange starfish, several medium sized rock sculpins, some chitons, some very cool porcelain type crabs, a few nice display rocks, and some small clumps of seagrass.

Didnt mess with any other macro algaes or kelp since I'm going to try just the seagrass first. Tomorrow the wife and I are going beach combing for more rocks and to get a good bucket of small gravel/sand for the seagrass tank.

Going to check out Siletz bay tomorrow and then hit up another area of tidepools tomorrow eveving when the tide is going out, its going to be another small minus tide so should be okay.

There is a lot of green anemones here that are somewhat photosynthetic, they are so abundant that I have not bothered to collect any yet. They will survive without much light but lose the green zooanthellea. I'll probably only bring a couple smaller ones home and see how they do first before taking anything large I dont know will survive.

I may be able to find some other varieties tonight at the lowest tides, but the weather is rather horrible today Sad

Thought I would give you guys a little taste of my collecting trip in Lincoln City.

Pic from the room we stayed in



Here's a pic of the rocks near 15th st, you can drive your car right down onto the beach and walk 50 ft to the rocks during low tide.


More of the rocks




There is literally thousands of these nems.


And a nice shot of the sunset from the rocks outside of the hotel, I was still collecting but I had to stop and grab a shot of this Very Happy



Some of the most gorgeous strawberry anemones I have ever seen were in the touch tanks at the Hatfield Marine Science Center, sorry for the crappy pic of these.



And finally my setups at home with everything acclimating.


Heres a quick peek at some of the new stuff, these guys are from the group buy.


More to come tomorrow once everything is feeling comfy and ready to come out and say hi Very Happy

I'm jealous. Those are pretty expansive and they look deep and big.

I just heard from a guy on a local reef club forum that was at this same spot with his family last month, they found brittle stars, shrimp, cucumbers, and that was all during a -.7 tide. When I go it will be a whole FOOT lower than that. Bounce Happy Dance Excited
