my very ghetto chiller.


and my live stock from todays harvest...? went out on low low -2 tide.







chiton with nems.


going to check how the chiller home made form a refrigerator (mini) is doing. the heat on the copper coils was amazing so that is why it is in water now to try and increase the surface area.

go a eel like fish today. but cant seems to find i in the mess of rocks/ and worring about the heat.

very hard to take great pics.

Is the copper you have touching the water that circulates through your tank? I believe most forms of metal, copper included, are toxic to marine life and especially temperate marine life.

Reference:
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper_toxicity#In_marine_life (sources for accuracy are sited)

I'm sure there are others. I might see if there is something you could do about it.

Yep copper is extremely toxic to marine organisms. make sure it doesnt touch your water at all. the slightest bit of copper in your water can hurt destroy the tank.

Otherwise, lokkin great. Nice progress.
