    I realise this is an old thread, but as a newbie on this forum I’ve just found it and this is something I’ve thought about for a long time but done nothing about.

    Seems like I’m not the only one on here that spent childhood summers up to his knees in rockpools with a tiddler net and a bucket! Oh to be 10 years old again.

    I suspect that intertidal native marines would be very forgiving regarding the conditions in which they are kept because, as was mentioned earlier in this thread, not only do they they tolerate a very wide range of conditions in the natural habitat but these conditions can change instantaneously. A rockpool can heat up to probably 30C on a good sunny day, and also fill up with fresh (but not always clean) water runoff from the nearby land – in an instant, as the first wave of the incoming tide hits, they can be plunged instantly into full strength seawater at 5C.

    My own dream would be to have two deep tanks set up side by side with a system of pumps and hoses on timers to move water back and forth through a chiller from one to the other on a 25 hour cycle to simulate tides. Perhaps one tank could be inverts, the other fish. Maybe one day…..

    Where is “native” to you?

    I have kept a lot of UK native marines – including cephalopods <img src="style_emoticons//wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” />
