So I had this idea and I thought it wood be cool.

Get a piece of limestone with a relatively large hole
Add water and let it cycle for a year
Add a sump below that simulates waves
Add some inverts (urchin, seaweed, periwinkles)
Add some fish

Oh I love periwinkles! This sounds just too cool!
Periwinkles mean a lot to me because in my childhood me and my friends would visit some rockpools and we clambered among the rocks to find the coolest and biggest ones.

Did you know you live in the coolest place in the world?

Did you have blue ones? My faves. Saw a pic once of almost a rainbow of colors. Beautiful!

I don't know whether I saw blue ones or grey ones because I am colorblind

If I could, I’d be there. Is there still an outback to get lost in?

Oh no! I couldn’t do that! How do you cope? No way could I have survived. See how lucky I am.

It sounds good, but I don't think you want to be lost in giant orange plains, named the nullarbor for a reason. Nullarbor = nothing. Ot would be fun to be out there for a bit though.

You should! Did you ever get to THE zoo while Steve Irwin was alive? He was my hero. He kissed a croc. I’ve never gotten to do that

Well you have 'gators.

Also whoops I thought Steve died in 1999, not 2006! Didn't really follow stuff like that at the time, and also I was in Tristan Da Cunha (look it up) that year.

My neighbor thinks the family cemetery looks like a bunch of twin beds out in a yard. Sounds kinda cool. Sounds like a beautiful place to visit. I’d have to stay in Aussie land. So many different places and critters and I just should’ve been born there! Near water. Love water!

I recko Sydney would be your place. Or down on the border, which is where many rainbowfish live.
