What kind of temperate fish do they sell? Anything free sounds like the way to go to me!

I have no idea. I was talking about the rocks. Haha

I'll definately be getting the fish from outside- I wanted a tank that represented Newfoundland.

Oh wow sorry. Yeah i would just look for some nice granite rocks from around your yard or what not. I would definitely collect rocks from the water as they tend to explode after a few months with life.

I'm really not prepared for an anemone at the moment... Not for my first tank anyway.

Well temperate anemones don't need lighting and of course you can always remove the rock if an anemone is on it.

Lighting isn't the problem, supplementing and feeding is.

I see. Keep in mind you will have heavy plankton and algae blooms every season in your aquarium.

That is desirable, and since I live just a 5/10 minute walk from the beach, I can always release the excess. Except in winter of course.

Well, we haven't had any nice days, so the seas weren't calm enough to climb out to the tidepools. Besides, they aren't great anyway. I live about an hour from the nearest quality tidepool.

Updates-- Going to the LFS tomorrow. We went to one today, but they're "closed indefinately," so we need to try and find another one.

Yep. If I can manage to get out to the tidepool before the snow comes... If not I'm just going to stock my tank with something else.

Yeah... Unless while I'm at the LFS buying the chiller I see a puffer... Otherwise it'll be temperate.

Yeah, I will. Even if I don't make a tank of it, I'll go and get pictures for you guys. I'll take a trip around the island sometime next summer and get more then... Pictures from every side!

Yeah, I'll be able to swim in the summer, so that'll be better for pictures.

Tomorrow- Chiller and livestock (if dad takes me)

If he doesn't, you'll (unfortunately) have to wait until next weekend. Although, if that is the case you'll get to see the better tidepool.
