Can Sashigane Fillomino contain number clues that are not in circles? Or is the only rule that differs from normal Sashigane the "regions containing the same number of cells may not share an edge" one?

The competition puzzles will not contain uncircled numbers, so you are correct that the only rule difference from standard Sashigane is that rule.

Yes, I struggled in puzzle #2 as well. I tried now again and found many solutions (even more than 2).
Another comment: The Aquarium rules differ from the usual rules used for that type. Usually all cells of a region within a row are filled or unfilled, independent if there are other fields in between. I should have read the rules better or especially also looked at the example. But common puzzles I normally skip in the instructions. I lost at least half of the time with the sheep and wolves and the aquarium..

Re Ropeko's comment: I've always thought that the version presented here was the usual, and that full rows is the variant.

As a first-timer who's never done most of these puzzle types before, I'm quite happy with 287. (Except for the typo I made when entering an answer for the second Anglers)
It was a fun ride!

I am using a Mac with Safari version 14. This apparently does not have flash player. They say other browsers will drop flash player as well. Anyway, I no longer have any way of participating, all I see is a blank screen below the download buttons.
