What you have to do now is go to your local Scuba shop get certified then pick up a used drysuit and have some fun. I even use a drysuit down here in the winter. Then you can swim in the worlds biggest fishtank.....

Your dive buddies might get angry at you taking away some critters but fish and game won't care much as long as you don't take too much abalone. I live in NorCal and used to know someone who had a marine tank stcoked from the waters near Dillon Beach. Water, livestock... everything (he lived 2 blocks from the shore). And aside from the chiller and a skimmer he didn't need much else... The tide pools provided him with everything he needed in his tank. And he ran a 50/50 light strip for 8 hours a day. There are alomost no symbiotic anemone's in northern water, there's just not enough sunlight... so they all have to be fed.

He fed them chopped shrimp, a little formula 1 every once in a while and did waterchanges from the ocean which provided LOTS of plankton for food.

BTW, his tank was ugly! Colorless, drab, cold and murky. But healthy! And fascinating as a piece of local landscape.

He said it was easier than a tropical reef, he'd done both for years, so he knew!
