Why even keep a tank where the diving is so good?

you still can have crappy weather. With a tank, he can pretend to be diving every time he looks at it.

Passed through Guam a few times when I was stationed in Okinawa. There will be a few stores there. Talk to the locals and field officers because there are several places you can collect in tide pools, etc. Also get natural sea water

Diving is also good. I didn't dive while stationed in Japan but wish I did.

We deploy to guam every year. The first time I went I was amazed on how cheap it is to get dive certed there.

What are some of the native fish to Guam? I've always been curious!

Always thought it would be cool to have an aquarium on Guam or someplace tropical like that... so many cool and colourful fish.
