Ummm majority of the livestock is taken from the ocean...not too much of a choice there other than a slim selection of captive-raised fish and propagated corals. Did you thoroughly clean the sand (doubt it)? Ultimately the animal died of a bacterial infection (ime).

Score #10000 for Innovator.

The method was wrong from the start. The list of captively raised fish and corals is growing fortunately. Regardless, catching something from the local body of water and trying to transfer it to a tank is the wrong approach. Doesn't matter if it's a flounder from a beach or a crayfish from the backyard creek. Chances are that it was also illegal, but I won't go there just yet.

thats what i was thinking hn1. a 4" flounder is illegal to keep.even if you put it in a tank you can not keep any gamefish under the legal size limit.
