I know exactly what you mean! I've caught blue crabs with a fishing line (no joke) and it's a pain to get a hold of.

Stone crabs are hard as rock. I couldn't Pierce its shell with a hunting knife. Had to flip it over on its belly.

Haha this is kind of getting off topic

So I did some research. Lobsters at the store are actually being prepped to be eaten. They are kept at a temp of 40 to 70 F. So no your fish cant survive this. The tanks are actually slowing them down so they dont "fight" and are slow when pulled out. They live in different temp all over the world and are brought down to the temp for commercial sales. So basically you would have to catch one from ocean to keep in your tank. The ones from the store are already being basically stored like meat in the meat dept. But google it. There is actually many universitys that are studying lobsters and how to make them live longer in those storage tanks.

While I do get a chuckle out of this thread, I just have to ask one thing......

Why would you want a regular lobster?
