I'm back in the game. New location

Hey all. Some of you may remember me. I sold my 120g set up when I got orders to Japan. Well we finally made it and I picked up a 125g set up over here yesterday. It's good to get my hands wet again.

Your system is looking great!

I was stationed there for 18 months (then extended there to stay longer) back in the mid 70's. Lived just down from Torri Station at Sobe #58 about 30 yards away from the seawall. Collected much of my livestock and ocean water while scuba diving.

I hear there is a huge coral farm there which has some nice stuff. Hope you can locate it.

Keep us updated, please.

We actually stayed at a lodge off 58 by the seawall when we first got here. Went to torri beach two weeks ago.

I think I know the one you are talking about. It's down 58 towards Naha. It's like a ocean research center that also does coralfarming .

I've been to 3 stores here and the prices are amazing. One had 3 large beautiful gigs for $60 each. Huge elegance corals for $30. Some things are high though. Small emerald crab for $20. Lol

They are very similar except I can't read the tags and the selections are slightly different. Tons of small Angel's for sale here . Like quarter sized. Not as many tangs. Prices are also different. Some things are way cheaper (coral and anemones) but some things are way more expensive (some inverts). I'll take more pics next time I go to one.
