They're home :-P

So, I've had to take them home a bit earlier than expected; my tank isn't quite cycled yet but the system where they were housed is being taken over for a cod experiment so I didn't really have a choice in the matter. Watching nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia levels constantly though!

Tons of pics, though!

Pics above are are of my fancy-dancy acclimation tank aka a 5 gallon Lowes bucket. The big guy isn't actually a blue lobster though... as you can see he grew fast than the others on the same diet during the experiment, so it's a result of less of the nutrients he needs


La gata was very useful in babysitting the lobsters while they acclimated on the floor...

Well, I probably won't keep them for more than a year or two, but by that time they should be a couple inches long. In the wild, though, they can get huge (I think the biggest one caught was ~42 inches long and was 40-50 pounds).
