Thanks for the warning BillyZ, I'll have to check into that. Its good to know that I'm not the only one who has gone out searching for my own critters.

Your definately not alone. Me and my family are going out this weekend to get some livesand I live on the gulf side of florida. We are setting up a 75gal. reef tank so we will get our own sand and during the cycling it will kill off any bad stuff. We are getting off siesta key beach you probably havn't heard of that but it has one of floridas best beachs and the sand is pure white. We will get it in about 20-30ft. of water so it will be pretty clean!

We got our own dive gear. My mom and my brother are the ones that will be going down so it will save me a head ache. I have know Idea what there gonna put it in because you can't drill holes in a bucket because the sand will just pour out. But maybe it will sink without holes in it. Who knows?

A new trash can would work, assuming you can fit it on the boat... (if your using a boat) Then just bring it up in 5 gal buckets. If you drill holes on the buckets bottom it will allow for water drainage and the sand will stay in. Some will come out but not enough to matter. Then just get your amount then remove it in buckets from the trash can, into ur tank. Ive done it with sand and water.

Our boat is 22 ft. so there should be enough room. Thanks for the tip!

JG - hello, neighbor!

I've collected some things from the NH seacoast (macro mostly), but it has never seemed to fare well in my tank/refugium/sump. I always thought that it was because of the extreme temperature difference. I've never dared to try actual live 'critters', though.
