you both have beautiful lobs

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

These are not our lobsters, they are extremely rare ones which people have caught commercially fishing.

There was an article last year about a rare bright orange lobster that was found by commercial fishermen as well. IIRC, it ended up in a shipment of lobster to St. John's, NL., where employees at Sobey's pointed it out to the media. Not sure about what happened to it in the end, though.
