Im from Maine...originally actually I use to skin dive for lobsters as a kid to earn money in high school. got paid .75$ each to catch them. you could get away with a single one in a reef but in ideal conditions they get large even a two to three pounder would destroy a reef tank in a short time....and if you had any slow fish they would either get pinched and damaged or damaged and eaten. they are rediculous scavangers that eat and crap all the time kinda like the seagull of the crustacean world, although lobster is better eating. You could possibly have one in a fowler style reef tank but the rock would have to be glued or really secure, and your filter sump would have to be about half the volume of the tank. The ones in stores and resturaunts dont last long in the tanks. The fishery we sold our lobsters to was on a ocean dock beside the coast guard station and they pumped fresh seawater into there holding tanks from below the dock.
29g Tetra Tank
100g Planted Angel/Clown Loach
I can't spell...Im an engineer, I do math
I have thought of doing this. In our science dept we have an all-in-one tank system with a chiller. Nobody wants it in their room because its about 3'x3' and just doesn't fit anywhere. I still would like to set it up and go down to the local grocery store and pick out a nice colorful chicken lobster!
