Please let me know, I'm diving nearly every weekend and I know a few cheap charters if you want out in the gulf and I dive Fort Pickebs often and have a night owl pass so I can get into the park 24/7

I scuba dive. I have an advance scuba cert and nitrox and own all my own equipment but a tank. Im not from around here but now live in the area (Pensacola) and have most my recorded dives as cavern. But I would love to go on a collectig dive. Im also a newbie for the reef tanks. But feel free to hit me up.

I wish I had learned to dive back in the day. Now I think I'd have to strap on a small hatchback to keep my big arse down.

Lol, sounds like me. I dive with a ton of wait. Used to trying to noose lobster in current and I want to be stuck to bottom so my hands are steady and I am not tearing up the reef moving around.

Well I haven't been diving but went to Big Lagoon State Park awhile back. Got some really small white leg hermits, 5 little "watchman" type gobies, 3 pipefish, untold number of glass/grass shrimp, 6 tiger shrimp and 1 brown shrimp, and 1 little shrimp I'm gonna have to do some searching on. It's clear/white with the body shape of a camel shrimp with 1 really unusual pincer, but not much bigger than the grass shrimp. Been watching it very carefully, thought it might go after my corals but not sofar, seams happy to stick that pincer into rock. The tiger and brown shrimp cought them when they were 1/2 inch long didn't know what they were at the time. They will stay in the tank unless they mess with something then they will make a nice shrimp cocktail. The biggest is about 2 inches now. The pipefish I'm down to 1, about 2 weeks ago had a a/c problem nano got up to 85. Hated that they were cool to watch, luckly the one that is buddy buddy with the clowns is still alive. The gobies were a pleasant suprise, really wasn't expecting to catch them. They have a body and fin shape like Randalls Shrimp Goby Fish with out the nice colors, mainly just white with alot of small brown spots. They are cool to sit and watch. Been thinking about getting a pistol shrimp and see if one of them pair up with it, if they don't I'll get a yellow watchman or something like it.

My most recent catch was a jackknife and a slipper lobster. I did find out that we have Peterson shrimp out here and that was awesome! But sadly they were too small to collect at the time. There was also a beautiful blue pistol shrimp that was guarding the anemone as well. Also I found out that we have a unique jawfish that is local to here as well as a unique dartfish neither of which I can catch even though I've tried.
