I envy you on the diving. Tokyo doesn't have much to offer. I've been to Izu
and they get a lot tropical fish coming on the Kuroshio current from the
Philippines. The selection is quite large and I did some collecting there
years ago. Currently, I'm more or less restricted to collecting in streams,
rivers and ricepaddies. Lots of aliens are turning these days and once
common species such as medaka, dojo or M opercularis and chinensis are
becoming scarce.
