  1. None I missed the start date of the contest and Ive been extremely busy traveling for work.
  2. Toads are to aggressive and get to large. I also thought about star gazer, puffer, sea robin, lizard fish, juvenile spadefish or look downs. All would have to be released. Ive caught sea horse in the grass flats. This isnt the beginner forum. Everything on that list stays in the bay year round and will have no issue.
  3. All of the fish are brown, black, or gray. Only thing with color is the whip coral and the sponges.
  4. Chesapeake Bay There are no zebra mussels in my area. No chiller and no heater. My fish choices will be very limited due to size and aggression. Most people would be surprised to find out what there is in the bay. Here are some of the livestock I may select.

  5. Its not going to be pretty and Im not spending a dime. LR is going into the Bay this weekend to start cycling. All livestock will come directly from my backyard.
  6. Ive had no issues with Marco Rocks on two tanks. What do you feed? Some foods are loaded with phosphates. Algae hitchhiked on frag.
