The rubros do change colour when they grow larger and the adults are downright ugly. Very cute as juveniles though.

Here's a local to you that caught some real young ones... http://www.masa.asn.au/phpBB2/viewto...t=rubrocinctus

Next year when the tides are good again. I'll go to our other collection place and take some more.

Completely different with large pools of large acro table. Very cool. It is only really accessable during certain tides as you have to cross a channel to get to it.

Went out again today.

Have a look closely at the rock that was totally covered with anemones. There are four on top that were closed up due to being out of the water.

awesome pics, i live in aus too. even though you are allowed to collect some stuff from the wild i personally wouldnt take anything from that reef. every thing there is part of an eco system and all fits into a hierarchy where everything depends on each other for the ecosystem to survive. taking out things is just going to damage the ecosystem, and we underestimate our impact on reefs so much its not funny. better to buy things at a shop, its not going back if it lands in a shop, whether tank bred or not.

Awsem !

Lewy : Thanx a lot for sharing your real life experience. I wish i had such places around. But with such pollution around my area i dont think any life would survive in the waters.

Keep us updated

Regards

Glad to share my little part of the world.

When the tides are right we are going out to another place at night.

Heaps of fun.

A teaser....

Man I wish there were local places like these in the states. I really love walking around tidepools and such, but obviously never able to see corals/anemones that we're so used to having in our private tanks. It must be really exciting to see clownfishes and anemones in their natural habitat up close and personal like that....and to be able to pick a juv clown up with the palms of your hands...amazing.

Yes more pics please. No more teasers.

This area is about an hours drive out from where me and lewy live, but it's a bit out of the way though, as you can see from the photos, the actual reef looks pretty boring when you look at it from the top of the bridge, but you have to walk out to really appreciate whats out there in rock pools. Plus depending on when you go day/night you'll find different things. I'm sure Lewy will post some more photos up in the near future as the low tides are going to be at night for the next 6 months or so.

By the way, love the pics...it is so interesting to see a tide pool up close. The only ocean I have had the opportunity to see up close is the texas coast and all I can say about that is dead jelly fish on what I guess you could call a beach.

Yes we did. They get trapped when the tides go out.

You can also catch them using a small hook and prawn as bait off a local wharf as well.

Incredible!

It's so .... educational to see pics of the critters in their actual environments. I had no idea that nems would experience that environment.

THANKS!
