Ocean Tidepool Life

The Subject:
     As everyone knows, the oceans are full of life, both animal and plant. But what about on the beach? And in the tidepools located there? They, I believe, are like a miniature ocean, albeit without the deep sea animal. For example, you can find animals like Australia's venomous blue ringed octopus, or more common and less local ones such as starfish and crabs.

The Details:
     In this set I have made a model of a tidepool. This highly detailed 1,999 piece set is very accurate (except for the lack of water, which I excluded for ease of viewing.

The life:
     The life in the tidepool in this set is both plant and animal, although I excluded ones less likely to be found in your generic tidepool (such as the blue ringed octopus). The animal life is as follows: 2 starfish, 1 crab, 2 sea anemones (1 large and 1 small), 3 brain corals, and 16 fish. For plants, there's 2 types of seaweed (yellow and brown).

The Why: 
     I built this set as part of  my aspiration towards becoming a marine biologist (more specifically, an ichthyologist), and I believe this would make a great set because it is an accurate model based on something familiar.
