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...
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...
Indeed... it has become a bit of an obsession haha
I find it really relaxing to come home from work and just kick back and watch them...and adding new things is even better!

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
sorry, yep my tank is outside... i kinda purchased it before running the idea by my folks... they didnt like the idea of a 700L tank leaking in the house....(not that it has or ever will *fingers crossed*) we came to an agreement that it can stay, but out in our back entertaining area.. it is...
so i have heard... there are many stories from octo-keepers!! some realting to octopus getting out of their tank, walking across the room to another tank, eating the contents, and then returning back to its own tank....

i have read and heard that they have the ability to regenerate if spliced down the centre with a very sharp one edged blade.
(razor, scalpel etc) thus potentialy ending up with two stars...
i have also heard that these guys are pest anenomies.... is there any reason behind it other than they mulitply so rapidly??
