Well I think it is about time for me to start a thread for my coldwater tank. Well the tank is a 15g glass, chilled by a via aqua chiller. I plan on keeping the temp around 55 or lower, and the stock will some from the Puget Sound, and later on a pair of Catalina gobies from the interwebz. I will be leaving on vacation to my cabin on Shaw Island and I will be bringing back goodies to fill this tank up. Rock and all (haha no 3 month cycle for me ;))

Anyway, here are some pics to start this thing off right.

Thanks man!

Yea I have a ton of money during the summer but when "mowing season" season is over my only money comes from random jobs and my birthday/christmas. So I gotta make money now. Ya its gonna be sweeeet when I get it stocked. I am gonna sit out in the rowboat at night with a flashlight...waiting. The dogfish (sharks) are kinda creepy at night because it seems like every time I am up there one bumps my hand lol.

Oh and the reason I will be sitting out at night is because the lights attract little inverts and then the fish I want (Spiny Lumpsucker) comes over to munch on them, then I net them!

Edit: Really? Cool. Its really fun up in the sound isn't it?

Haha I know, I love it. I think the best time to be in this hobby is when you are young. Basically all of my money goes into my tank.

My thread is washingtonians only haha.

Yep cool peeps, his tanks are great i've gotten a few things from him. I want to go see his new 200 gallon soon.

Sorry Jacob your thread has been hijacked! j/k 15 gallon is an awesome size!

Oh and i had a cold water tank with puget sound animals about 17 years ago lol. It was a 2 gallon bowl, i had some hermits and some little fish that almost looked like a scooter blenny. I had it going for about a year or so with nothing but a sponge filter and air pump, no chiller, but back then i didn't know any better. I only knew enough to mix the instant ocean :D

Haha the little blenny looking thing was probably a bull head (sculpin kinda thing). And they can live in temps over 80 degrees. The tidepools they hang out in get sooo hot. I have been going up there and flipping over rocks since I was a year old, really fun.

Ehh its fine. I kinda hijacked davids thread lol. Time to get yours mwuhaha



David, Eric emailed you if you didn't know.

I've abandoned my thread until my tank looks perfect :D. You are probably right on the bullhead, it's been soo long since i lived over there i forgot what the tidepool creatures looked like.

Ya I live in Yakima, a very crappy town. Seattle has too many people I agree. I am not a big fan of highly populated areas :)
