I am back everyone!

Well after my long awaited trip to my cabin I am back. For a little background info for those who don't want to read the thread, my family has property on Shaw Island, it is the island in the middle of the San Juan Islands (the main ones anyway) in the Puget Sound. My dad and my grandpa have been going there since they were little and everyone has enjoyed it. We find tons of stuff up there, from arrowheads, native american burial sites, to angler fish, to you name it someone in my family has found it haha.

I recently got back from my second trip up there since I have had my aquarium set-up and this time came back with some goodies, and this time to a cycled tank! The tank is looking better literally every minute and the anemones are more open as I am typing this than in the pictures I took a few min ago. At this point I really don't want to name every single thing I brought back, but I brought back: some "bullheads" or sculpin I believe, a Gunnel a very neat eel the same as Jamie's Jim Smile, and some inverts. Those include a couple anemones, some large and some small. More info on them later. I also brought back two nudibranch. No hear me out, I know what they eat and when. These nudis are at the end of their lifespan, they have come to the shallows to lay eggs and die. So I brought back two (It was neat, I saw 20+ all over the docks). The nudi ((s) actually) I brought back feed on bryzoans and sea squirts, which I have provided haha, well not the bryzoans. Dirona Pellucida is the one I found spawning on the docks. The other I also found on the docks, which is really fun, seeing something so colorful mixed in. I don't have a link yet, but they are basically a Sea Lemon, that eats sea squirts. I also brought back a couple starfish, including an ochre star and another blue and green one that I forgot the name of. Both will eat clams I buy for them (thanks Jamie Smile). Finally I brought back a bunch of shrimp. All different colors which is neat. One is clear witha white stripe and black spots, another green and another red. Finally some brown and multicolored ones. Anyway they are neat and seem to be doing well.

The plan now to get everything eating. I was observing my tank a little white something floated by one of my bullheads, it was immediately eaten, then spit back out (It wasn't food). I am pretty certain I will be able to train everything onto frozen pretty easily. That, feeding my nems, and keeping my nitrates and pest algae down while still keeping my nitrates down will be the next problem. But I will handle it one step at a time. Thanks everyone for the help and for following along!

The pics are uploading, well kinda. Photobucket is acting weird, but they will be here soon!

Its called a Dirona Pellucida, and is on deaths door, it had already spawned so I felt like bringing them back so I could enjoy them for a little while. Thanks, yeah the tides never got low so everything came of of buoys, but I still did pretty good Smile

Uhm no I don't really plan on it anytime soon, I like this tank, but a bigger tank would be cool, I enjoy this one Smile
