    Hey everyone,

    Came across this thread on reef central. It is really interesting to see the corals they get in Australia and the ones they get to take home. Really interesting with a lot of pictures:

    that is really unfair

    or i hope the permit is not easily attainable as they could do serious damage to the oceans reef if they can take such huge chunks out of it

    You don't need a permit if it is for private collection.

    If you read through the whole thread you will see that these guys only take frags and never the whole coral.

    The only reason I read it was because I saw that you were the last person to post on the thread.

    Why would it get out of hand if a hobbiest takes home just as many frags as he can keep, as opposed a collector collecting as much as he can to make as much money as possible?

    Also look through the whole thread and you will see that most of the corals collected have been damaged by storms and lie out the water on piles of sea weed at low tide.

    The aussies are really admirable with what they can collect. Did you know that it was the aussies who invented the first condoms from a sheeps bladder, it was the South Africans though that developed the condom further by taking the bladder out the sheep first.

    Can make nice tanks like that here too, just got to know where and what you can take.
