not much to collect for a tropical tank if it is permitted that you may collect (not sure) i know a few fish that wash down there with the season but that is dependant on the ocean currents etc etc.. lovley specimins down there for a cold water tank though..

You kidding right?
you sometimes get tropical fish caught in warm bubbles of water down that coast. Ive never seen clowns and angels that far south, but have often seen damsels and surgeons as far south as knysna. Its rather sad to see, cause once the water cools down they die.
