    Hallo.
    I am on holiday for the long weekend with my family and have wondered what the methods and procedures would be in order to fish some anemones from some of the pools.
    I have done some homework and I did get a permit from my home town for aquarium fishing.
    And some do's and dont's.
    Please take it easy on me because its my first time doing this.

    Most of the anemones in the rock pools will not do well in tanks. They either prefer the cooler temps or they are colonial anemones which could be an issue. They might also be predatory. I would just leave them where they are. Fish will not host in them so you will be wasting your time if thats your end goal.

    Is it legal to take corals from rock pools? I would love to get some as well.

    With your permit you can take out fish, snails, hermit crabs, macro algae, tube worms, brittle stars, starfish, shrimps and soft corals. All these are available in rock pools.

    Enjoy

    You get it from the post office. Fill out the form and tick which licences you want and then pay :D

    Tick the box for marine aquarium and then another box for marine plants, inverts etc.

    most of these sits so deep into a little hole that it will be impossible to remove them anyway. No way to get in under them to slowly work your nail in without damaging them.
