2 of us went for a low tide exploring trip, mainly to find out if there's any sites worth visiting for the members living on the north side of Brisbane.

Rabucazz brought his refractometer to check the water's salinity and it reads 1.020, a little better than his last reading of 1.015 at another site a little south from this spot, not great water, but still usable if there's a sudden need to make water changes and have no reef salt on hand.

In terms of wild life, it's the usual suspect, but not as abundant or varied as the usual sites we go for clean up crew.

Nothing was collected and all specimens caught were released after photos were taken.

I was surprised with the wildlife we saw there. Nothing exciting for a marine tank, but heaps of different species. Even a school of squid swam between us. I found a boat ramp further north with good quality water to be collected, pretty easy and convenient too. Interesting spot, I will be there from time to time to check it out.

That's right Ignobolis. I've already spotted two places to be checked out on the low tide. I will keep searching for new collecting spots. I'll let you guys know.
