    Hey everyone,

    I got this fish about a week ago. The Lfs had it labeled as a coral beauty but it could also be a black bean, so which one is it now?

    Thats what I thought and I argued with the lfs. He showed me the order form and it said coral beauty. What price should these go for (It is a small one, about 5cm)?

    These fish are about the same price as the Coral Beauty. But my choice is still the Multispinus. I had four in my 1.5ft tank before until the tank burst :(
    Use to catch them on every dive when North Pier was open.

    When I went to the shop today, they had just got moorish idols in, they were only R199. I wouldn't get one because they don't do well in our tanks (or so I have heard) but it is a really cool fish...

    Guys what happened to that place called I think "Shareworld" It had the imitation beach with waves and every now and then one big tidal wave like Scuba's wavebox size and cool monster waterslide tube rides? I was there many many moons ago!

    Sorry was referring to this post - Some bright spark with tons of Moola built this place up in JHB for those inland land lubbers that couldnt get to the sea - it was a very very cool place! Just a huge water world - but like the real ocean - no tanks though! Even had fake penguins and all! There was pool part of this "ocean" that had huge wave every 10 to 15 mins tearing down the pool - one could even surf it - will try to google it and find it!

    I can't say they not a sponsor and I don't think it is fare to promote a shop that doesn't sponsor this site...

    Something close to what Sun City has but if I remember correctly it was near Nasrec - I'm pretty sure it was called Shareworld - was a long time though - all the tubes were enclosed see through tubes with water flowing inside like Ushaka but one had to super fit to climb up to the very top of the rides - ultra cool place!

    pm the name to him - thats not against the rules but would be nice to support our sponsors - try to see if you can get them to bring it in at that price for all of us to benefit! Competetive prices are what we all looking for and if the sponsors can match or beat them then it's a win win situation!

    True. Or maybe I should convince this shop to become a sponsor. How much does it cost to become a sponsor?
