In Reply to: Keeping lobsters in an aquarium? posted by Jason on October 17, 2004 at 13:10:28:

I would kill them and freeze'em much less hassle.

I also own a 135, two 70, two 55 and two 20 gallon aquariums. I no longer run saltwater tanks, but still have the equipment. I have a really big problem. With how sea life is collected in places like the Philippines. So I retired my salt water hobby for awhile. I would like to breed saltwater fish someday. Now there is a real challenge.

I see lobster tanks in grocery stores and Red Lobster. I suspect their tanks are chilled? Besides temperature and salt water, short term storage should not be a problem. I would run a cheap protein skinner to help keep waste down and add some time. I would use a acrylic tank and some cheap method to keep the water chilled for the short term.

Long term storage would be much more difficult. There is very much to know about keeping invertebrates in a aquarium long term. I have pondered keeping California invertebrates in a home aquarium. The price of a reefer unit for my aquarium shot down the ideal. I can buy a Atomic regulator for about the same price.
