Going to the beach!

I am going to the beach this weekend, and was wondering if there is anything I can find down there that would be good for sand sifting, or be really nice to have in the tank. The beach I am going to is not at all tropical and there are no ornamental fish there. There are hermit crabs and those sand-fiddlers. The grey things that have orange guts. Dont mean to get all grusome but I dont know how else to describe them.

Youd be surprised the amount of quality fish you can find for your aquarium in the ocean... Heh, perhaps that wasnt the best wording.

Looking back, I dont think I bought one fish for my aquarium, all of them Ive caught out in the wild. And Its not like Im being stuck with 10 puffers each dive either. Ive caught a wide variety, from Flame Angelfish to numerous Butterflyfish.

If I have it my way, Ill likely never buy a fish. However, if (and when) I do, itll likely be tank raised.

And let me say, they are hardly easy to catch

I would like to stress that is very important to know your local laws as far as catching fish for aquairum use. Wurtzless has told me previous to this post that its legal in HI to net catch fish but its hard to say what the laws in NC will say about this.

Not to mention that the costal waters of NC are likly to not hold fish that one would normally assocate with a tropical tank.

You may be able to catch some tropical fish depending on the time of year. On another board, there is a diver who has caught butterfly fish, puffers and lionfish in NY & NJ.
