    I was at the coast this weekend and tried to catch me a convict, easier said than done! Any reefers in Dbn willing to lend me a hand catching one, or prepared to catch one for me.. I'm back in Dbn on Thursday, until Sunday.. Pretty please :)

    We have plenty of Convict tangs here in Amanzimtoti. They like to hide but they are still easy to catch.

    I've wanted a convict for ages, haven't seen one for sale in a pet shop. Any one wanna catch one for me, pretty please. I would give you some pulsing Xenia and zoa frags but I think that is illegal.

    How about we meet at Chakas Pool, just south of Salt Rock Beach at 7h00, Friday. (low is at 8h00)
    Erratic why dont you join us. Zak, perhaps you could take a convict or 2 back for Manic?

    Yup... you're right. So is swapping and donating fish according to the new permits. Just pointing it out as this is a public forum.

    I know but it is kinda difficult to ask someone to catch a fish for you if you can't give him anything for his efforts.

    The frags are for the petrol to drop it off not for the fish :)

    All you need is a 5 liter/10 liter container and an air pump. I'll give you my battery operated air pump to keep the water from going stagnant. I will PM you my details. Oh and If you have any xenia frags, can I swop you?

    Damn, that is small. You can give him away when adult, as tank-raised!

    Looks good. Is he eating? Any possibility of catching a few more? If you can, will take one up for @Manic

    Bit early for the strong drinks but I'll bring the coffee.
