Not populate, but I have scooped up a few grass shrimp to feed, but that has been a while. I had a 200 gallon back then. Once I set my reef up years later, I got concerned about unintentionally introducing something bad. So I quit doing that.Awesome. Do you ever populate or feed your tank from the GOM. I fished for years in Hackberry with and without the Rod and Gun Club Guide - JY Constance. Seems the waters are teaming with life there.
