Looking for an organism who believes in “one ocean, one phylum.” I have a small shelf in a nice tidal pool and I enjoy my life, which is straightforward and goal-oriented (goal being to find my shelf again after every tide).
Male bivalve looking for female (no hermaphrodites – I’m not prejudiced, just know what I like). Please be into drawing lots of water containing my sperm through your inhalant siphon. Reproduction not the goal for now.
Recently lost an incredible organism. Need to go slow; proximity is all I’m seeking for now.
Mollusk interested in developing into an invertebrate seeks like-minded community.
Tired of playing games. If your idea of a good week involves mobilizing to another bivalve’s rock crevice and experimenting with inhaling their sperm through your siphon, I doubt we’re a match.
Looking for a mollusk who isn’t put off by hermaphroditism. (No “one ocean, one phylum” types.) I don’t have time for narrow-ligamented bivalves who won’t take in the occasional squid tentacle or lobster antenna. Life’s too short not to use all our openings.
Quiet bivalve seeking same. No roaming; riptides no exception. Mutually agree to bob and float in the same vicinity until one of us excretes something useful.
Tired of tidal pool scene. Looking to be washed outward to near where waves break. It’s taken me a long time to get here so Please be a faith-based bivalve who knows who she is and is goal-oriented. (I believe in “one ocean, one phylum.”)
Bivalve-curious starfish ready to mobilize across tidal pool to penetrate a clam. Obviously prefer a clam willing to open their shell at my approach, and please don’t be one of those jerk-clams who won’t open again to let me out after we’ve slimed it up for a while. Been through that too many times; several arm-tips missing to prove it.
Female bivalve not interested in reproducing. Seek female for journeys to different tidal pools and a new idea of community.
Proud oyster, survivor of several harvesting events, seeks oyster to grow to next season with.
Barnacle fetishist seeks partner in crime who also likes to fasten onto barnacles and suck their grainy, ribbed exteriors until they soften and eventually cease to exist. Have tried meeting barnacles through their own sites but can’t find any into this scenario.
Adventurous mussel looking for a big scallop who will engulf the softest part of me, while still respecting boundaries. I believe in “one ocean, one phylum” but you don’t have to.
