    Hey everyone!!

    Just a quick question? Was in the post office this weekend and saw that the one stamp has the coral beauty on it. Here is a link to how it looks by viper.

    South African Postal Stamps - Marine Aquariums of South Africa

    Now I just want to know why do the have the coral beauty on our postage as most of the internet and the debates on MASA state that they don't naturally live in our waters. Could most of the info we have been reading be wrong on the location of the species or has the post office made a big mistake? Any opinions?

    Also a extremely difficult fish to keep unless it has been very well trained to accept prepared food which is a very very difficult task and after that they then have a serious diet requirement. But IMO opinion this fish has a beauty like no other and no pictures do them justice they also are very confident and interact well with you. I rem the first one I brought in, I wasnt expecting what I got but when I opened that bag I was shocked at how amazing the fish is and it is def in the top 5 fish on a beauty scale has an amazing eye. But not easy to find and healthy ones are pritty expensive.
