This day mark from the club wanted to get four thousand litres of water for his massive systems as a water change.

Some of the members tagged along to help a little and collect while there and this was the day.

There were one or two sharks that were a bit of a hassle,but it was okay this time.

Upon arriving there got, Mark threw the end of the hose for the pump into the water and a 5 or 6 foot wobby darted up from the deeper water straight at it, lucky no one was there at the time, or it may have been interesting.

When they got into the water it was a problem and wouldn’t leave them alone, which was good as they went else where and found some nice tank species.

The water was quite cold and a little green, so it wasn’t the best of conditions, but still fun.

Mark said he spent an hour and a half pumping all that water up to the truck, so he didn’t get in until right on high tide, they were already shivering by then.
It was so cold by near the end; it was hard to keep the camera still,lol!

Some nice little green coral gobies, yellow assessors and heaps of dragonets were seen, all in two to four foot of water, easy as.

It was great as usual, eat some lunch than get in,get out have a hot drink, get back in, another great day, just a bit cool in the water.


This is the truck all went over in which is Mark's from betta car hire at cleveland,they hire out most vehicles and trailers.

Geez did it fit a lot of gear in.
