It’s been back a few times that I’ve seen. It obviously lives nearby.

I got some Murchison River Hardyheads (Craterocephalus cuniceps) last week... Truth be told I was trying for some Spangled Perch :-/

They can... you can live in your bedroom too but you'd hate it and eventually want to die.

Reef tank or Brackish/marine fish only (FO)?

Depends on type of sub used. Are you planning to use strictly inert materials? I would and you probably do intend to as well. The issue with any sub and more so with deeper subs is the water quality can suffer as a result of decomposing organic matter. Even with inert subs you will get fish crap settling into it affecting water quality over time.

With mudskippers you will likely have a really low bioload given they're small and territorial... This will mitigate the negative effects of a deep sub. There are benefits to deeper subs, particularly if you use an under-gravel filter... Pretty underrated. Perhaps the best (and maybe most successful) fish breeding setup i've seen in Perth uses under-gravel filters in most tanks... Cant  really be used with sand though.

If you plan on overstocking mudskippers, consider using "rocky islands" rather than a single "sandy beach" this greatly helps reduce the territorial squabbles.

Add a bit of heat and some lemon juice.... no problem at all.

This tank reminds me of Millstream between Karratha and Tom Price.
Really well done. The Vallis looks good too... I spent hours snorkling in the Maitland river last month... acres of Val. Was amazing came face to face with a couple of big jacks, barra, scats, salmontails,etc. Fair to say I didn't want to leave... ever.
And yes... get a FW moray... they are terrific!!!

$150 to cover costs
Keep 20 and sell 5 for 20 each.... end up being pretty cheap fish.

Near you.... Pet Magic and Aquotix.
Put it in a bag and stick it in a filter.

The catty should eat anything after a day or two. The nightfish might need to go from live blackworms to frozen foods... my nightfish went onto frozen pretty easily. Can't remember if I tried pellets with them or not.
The nightfish should go nuts for a bit of prawn or fish fillet...
