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?

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 :)
