You’re just trying to share the joy aren’t you. I make my husband watch reef videos.
My TV doesn't actually work on any of those shows, No reality shows actually except "American Pickers" which is very cool and I get Steam Punk Ideas from it.Anyway, one of the shows she's into ATM is "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette".
You'll be back and we can do this. I can show you a few we've done locally too! Big tank cool fish then we can concentrate on the reef!Going to the beach
My wife loves going to the beach, and since we live in Navarre we are only 2 miles from beautiful Navarre Beach. She likes to lay out, get a tan, listen to the waves crashing, and play in the water. She could probably do this all day, every day. My idea of "going to the beach" is a little different. I prefer snorkeling around bridge pillars or near a jetty, looking for fish and other critters. I never take them from the water, I just like to observe them in their natural habitat.
Now, 30 years ago it was a different story. I was living in New Orleans at the time and had a "Florida tank". EVERYTHING in this aquarium was collected somewhere in-between Panama City and Pensacola, Florida. My dad & I would make multiple trips over every summer to collect specimens. I was definitely @Paul B'ing it back in the day.
I sorta wish I had setup another "Florida tank" when we moved here. Of course, you have to be a lot more careful (legal requirements) taking anything out of Florida waters nowadays. Maybe if I had met @Aaronhome27 a little sooner we could have taken field trips all over the area to catch fish, crabs and other aquatic creatures. But the business has taken so much of my time the past 2+ years that I don't know if I would have even had time to do it. And now we are close to leaving, so no time left to setup a "Florida tank". Oh well...
Most places still do. Its mostly the grocery stores that no longer do it. I dont think Haydel's does it anymore, but that because theirs have become valued collectibles.I remember when they use to put the baby in - sad when they change things. It was fun seeing who would get it.
