Sweet!!!! That fires me up looking at your tank. Beautiful greens:)
well we didn't know what kind of tools to bring. we used someones tool to take the green surf anemones off the rock. i couldn't believe how hard they are to get them to pop off the rock. got a green kelp crab. a red kelp crap. hermit crabs. sand dollar. i did only find one bright orange snail. some white snails. a few sea slugs. they are pretty cool. it was a fun trip. sorry we didn't meet up today. next trip i will be more prepared with the tools that i need. can't wait to go again. we will have to plan another trip. we all can carpool together.

The anemones test the patience, don't they? Mini sledge hammers and cold chisels are my friends but I forgot mine on this trip so I had to peel everyone of them. We are going to Newport again this summer. And there is lots of great places down there to hit also. The orange and white snails eat barnacles and other small critters. And the sea slugs may key in on your nems so I would watch them around the feet of you nems.
