    i have a pencil urchin and a unidentified(as in i dont know) gorgeous black urchin with white circles around each spine i think it is a rock burrowing urchin. i am also considering moving my green morey to a much bigger aquarium with a blue spotted stingray or a ray of another kind this summer as he has slightly outgrown his tank maybe he will like the 240 i will be buying for him so he will be even more comfortable

    Hi, I just joined today, too, but am having trouble choosing an avatar. I do not see any pics or images to choose from, just the avatar names. I clicked on one and thought I would post a message, just to see if it would show up. At this writing, I have no idea what it actually looks like, though.

    Welcome, Beakmaster!

    TONMO recently upgraded, but some of the pictures - apparently including avatars - have not followed yet. I'm sure Tony, who manages the entire site, will work this out given enough time.

    Hi,
    I too signed in today. This is one of the most interesting sites I have visited. I want to go to the local pet shop and check out the saltwater aquariums. Then to the dive shop and get geared up to go to the coast. :snorkel: - deepsix

    Hello,
    Last fall when I dropped off my son at Cal State University Monterey Bay, Beakmaster and I went fishing at the commercial pier in Monterey. I was sort of fishing for anything that might be lurking around the pier pilings and noticed a small squid approximately a foot long trying to ravage the feathers off my maribu jig! I never did hook the squid but it did clean off most of the feathers.
    I read a very interesting article in National Geographic about the giant squid in Mexico about the same time period. The photographer was was somewhat un-nerved at the aggressiveness of the creatures. The last few weeks the giant squid are being caught on rod and reel from fishing boats in the 800 + foot deep canyon at Moss Landing just north of Monterey, 20 to 40 pound size. This is incredible? yes, no or I am squid crazed. That canyon holds many secrets, the M. Bay Aquarium has a good movie explaining some of the research conducted there. There is a research vessle stationed at Moss Landing with those deep diving rovers. What a dream career to be part of that exploration team.
    Gotta go - deepsix

    Jig Status

    Hello,
    The jig is in my mess of a tackle box, battered and beaten. It is one of my prized possesions. I have told many friends of the beating it took at the snapping beak of the giant squid under the pier. :snorkel:
