    Let us list local life stock in our tanks. Not Fish, but all the other snails, hermits, zoa's or what have you.
    Especially all the nice ones to have.
    Can also list those that is better of in the ocean, specialist eaters, predators or just a nuisance out of your experience.

    Will post my list later.

    Cushion Stars :)
    Hermits
    Snails

    I'll try get some pictures for you.

    My cushion stars have doubled in size and they are one of my best inmates. Never causing problems just moving FAST around the tank.

    Would also be interesting if the location where they've been collected from is mentioned. Perhaps in brackets?
