Just wondering how the fish and corals do in the aquariums you guys get
Do you loose many are they better than shop bought fish and corals
Itís not just because I would be too scared of the ocean and do what you guys do
I have had some failures and the success rate you guys may have is what I am curious about
cheers

Definitely better than store bought fish. I have found that i've had almost probably a 95% success rate with local fish. I've only had a couple die on me, out of however many i've had in my time so far.

They simply do better because there is hardly any stress for them due to not being shipped around for days at a time, being swapped from tank to tank to tank, and the fact that once we get them from the water into a bucket its usually under an hour before they are in our tanks.

These two tanks both have collected species in them.

This one is 100 percent locally collected fish and inverts.

Deadsled has some collected fish and inverts in his journal tanks as well as far as I know.

Two of the guys have been trying different ideas and lost lots of life over the last two years as many hobbyists do and shops as well.

As deadsled indicated, we get them home in very good condition and than itís up to who ever gets them as to how well they survive, just like when you buy a fish from the shop, but fresh from the ocean is easier if no mistakes are made with the aquarium.
