Hi everyone marine,
I am in Westport at the moment having a few days away, and today while walking along the beach, looking in the rock pools, I wondered......
Can I put this stuff into my marine tank?
I saw loads of shrimp, many over 3 inches long. Lots of very small yellow snails. And plenty of anemones.
Can I relocate a few of these to my tank, or will the tempture difference kill them off?
What do you think?
Answers on a postcard....I suppose posted here would be ok as well.
Thanks.

In the absence of any replies (so far) I seem to recall reading that most native marine Anemones are very temperature intolerant - I'm assuming the same applies to the snails, shrimps and prawns as well.
Hopefully there will be more well-versed-in-the-subject members along later to give you better advice, but that's 'as I read it'.

I am not very key'd up on native marine but as far as i can remember the temp for native marine is around 16-18 degrees which is alot lower than what you would have in your marine tank.

Also i think the water conditions themselves are very different for native marines to tropic marine. But then again i only know a limited amount on native so hopefully there is someone with a native tank here on the forums who can help you out.

Would be interesting to know the proper answer.
