So I went today for a nice walk down to the reef to get some snails and a few shells with my 4 and 5 year olds. I was more going out there because the kids were driving me batty inside the house and they love going for a walk down onto the reef at low tide and checking out all the crabs and the fish fry that are in the small tidal pools. I normally take a bucket along to collect some snails to add to my cleanup crew that normally go and either crawl out of my tank or they just seem to disappear.

I guess I will finally make my first post here on Reef Addicts as I have been lurking around for a week or so. I am currently living in Okinawa Japan where we have some of the best diving in the world with all the prized fish and corals. After diving for the last 2 years here, I finally decided to get back into reefing after a 3 year hiatus. While I was in California I had a 125 gallon reef and a 60 gallon reef.
