releasing any species not native to the country you live in is illegal and often carries a hefty fine

Even releasing native species which are from somewhere else is a big no no. You can't even import officinalis from western mainland europe to the UK because of the risk of disease transfer so you do have to be very very careful about it all.

Hello again everyone, sorry i've been away for ages, im sure you all missed my good looks, charm and wit! Yay im back and a happy new year to you all!

Little bits and bobs at work, got a few nuce aculetus in and some mysterious cuttle eggs but not got any myself at the moment no. I'm cycling a 10G tank for a pair of Metasepia though so fingers crossed on that front!
