    Please could someone help me identify this fish. I was collecting specimens in Ballito when one of nephews brought this 4cm fish to me and insisted that I take it home to put in my tank. I realize that it's not an aquarium fish but thought I'd keep it a while. It has a voracious appetite and finishes all the leftover food.

    Yeah, definitely a snapper. Not something you want in your tank.
