    jellyfish

    I have cought a few jellyfish and thought it would be interesting to stick them in my tank... They did not last long... a few were eaten quite quickly...and the remaining were sucked into the weir... they are mainly tidal animals i think, so they will naturaly end up in the weir... i think...

    LFS - Shark Tank !

    yeah come to think of it a GIAGANTOR fresh water tank would look amazing too!! 500 neons schooling together would be an awsome sight! I'de be tempted to tansfer the family swimming pool into salt water.... be large enough to have a school of sharks..would take a while to de-clorinate and cycle...

    My 6x2x2 - shark + EEL

    i wish!! if only it were that easy! the reef is about a 15+hr drive plus a boat trip away! i do however catch sharks,sting rays and eels every weekend when i go fishing. most of them are too big to keep but some of them have taken quite nicely to my tanks! sure beats paying $200+ for them
