Hi,
I was at Port Edward last week - brought back
1. Zoa's
2. The sea slug (very pretty - not sure on how safe)
3. Some sea weed - looks very cool in the tank.
4. Hermit grabs, and some snails
All in low tide.
Good luck and enjoy the hunt....

How likely is it to rot?
and is smell the only/best way to determine that it died..?
(i hope that it will stay alive, as my tank was very "bare" without these - at least it is looking like something now)
