    HI, added an abalone to the tank today and the copperband spent nearly all day checking him out, he wasn't quite sure about this new creature invading his tank. lol
    He has been out and about lots today, very pretty really. 002.JPG 003.JPG

    Where did you get a abalone? I thought they were protected and highly illegal to sell.

    From what i've heard people are hoarding them for pearl farming and it caused this. I may be wrong though.

    That is terrible if its true. I know we can eat them in most restaurants here. they might be hoarding them but I dont think its for oysters, dont pearls come from oysters ?
