Hi all, It still hurts looking at the empty tank. I've convinced myself and my wife that the best thing we can do to get over Thomas is to get another little guy/girl into our living room as soon as we get back from vacation towards the end of May. Does anyone know what the collection laws are for California? Obviously if it's an ecological reserve, you can't take anything, even the rocks. But what about just a normal rocky beach or tidepool area that's not a reserve? Is it legal to go get one that way?
