The red ones... awesomeness.

Do you know what salinity where they are collected?

Best glass cleaners, hands down.

I'm very sorry I do not have a kit to measure water chemistry where they live. All I know is that they could only be seen where fresh spring is not very far the sea or river near the sea.
