yeah I been to hawwaii and was very tempted to take some. But I heard alot of stories and meet a few people that had bad luck from it.

So I didn't want to take any chances. I hope u have good luck with it though!

You should just buy some black sand. I'm pretty sure home depot sometimes has it for sale.

The black beaches are protected by law and its illegal to take the sand. Unless you can find an exemption (saw it on the travel channel lol)

Then there is that whole bad luck thing, a teacher of mine at school was there with her boyfriend of a few years and she took some sand, they broke up just after the trip.

True, but I'm sure inter-island travel is listed somewhere in that book of phobias

p.s. watch out...your teacher might break up with her boyfriend!

Well, neocaridina(rcs sp) are a super super super common things in our streams, and we can also buy them as feeders, 15 for $10. Maybe we should start our own strain

But CRS and all the other sp on the other hand
