Thanks GBP! I really want to get up there and see that tank. When I do, I'll try and find someone to talk to it about. If not, I'll write them. I have seen some stuff on the web about it.

My inspiration came from the tank that they have at the Calvert Marine Museum.

I don't want to keep any blue crabs simply because they get too big and will eat the fish that I prefer. As far as a stocking list goes, this is what I had in mind:

Fish

Must haves:
several Striped Blennies
several Naked Gobies
1 Hogchoker
Killifish (some, but not many, maybe a few of each species)
several Skilletfish

Maybe (if I can catch them, or if they survive)
Silversides
Bay Anchovies
Feather Blenny
Seahorses (won't collect until the tank is established, and will go in my fuge)
Pipefish (won't collect until the tank is established, and will go in my fuge, plus might only do one, they typically don't do well, so I may not keep any)
Sticklebacks - if I can find them
compatible Exotics that I catch, if I can find them (like a Spotfin Butterfly)
maybe small spot...or two.

Inverts

Must Haves:
Snails
Limpets or slippers (if I can find them)
a few hermit crabs
maybe a decorator crab

Maybe
Red Beard Sponge (once tank is established)
Anemones
Gorgonians (if I go full salt)
A few Sea Squirts (once tank is established)
one or two Oysters or other bivalves (once tank is established, but probably not)

Plants
Ulva
Maybe some red macros

I may try several that I collect and see what survives.
