    Better photos of the shrimp, and a spot where a native Fissidens is found growing submersed in abundance. There's also Potamogeton but not much else.

    Unsure. Collection from sea etc may have different rules.

    I'm in the same location as yourself. I caught heaps of smelt at menangle. Cool little fish. If you want more info let me know. I help at a local aquarium shop as well.

    O BTW use Vegemite on day old bread in bait traps. I tested this using 2 traps. One with fish food and plain bread, the other with Vegemite on bread. No contest, Vegemite won hands down

    I know Menangle has some interesting stuff, haven't been looking out for much other than shrimp due to only having a net.
    Trying to find more moss that may grow submerged, or more interesting shrimp. I dearly wish there were Caridina spp. found around Sydney..

    Menangle was the first place I went with the NSW Aquarium Society when I was a kid. There was a weir that had a simple waterfall and I spent many days there collecting things that would live in my tanks.

    That same spot was where I first found smelt, but didn't know what they were at the time. There are many, many gudgeons getting about at night.
