    Hi Guys,

    I can get the following fish from a reefer that is closing his tank.

    4x Clarkii Clowns.
    1x Scopa Tang.
    1 x Bangai Cardinal.
    2x Fire Goby's
    4x Yellowtail Damsels.
    1x Midas Blenny.
    1x Hawkfish.

    His price for all fish R1300.

    Fish are healthy and eating.

    Is the price reasonable, or am I paying to much?

    I have never transported so many fish at once.

    What would be the best way of transporting the fish, the guy I am purchasing it from is in JHB, only his dad to assist, he will not be able to bag each fish individually, can I transport them all in a sealed polystyrene container, for about 60 min? will add some ammonia neutralizer for the trip?

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    60 min no problem. These red sea salt drums work great as well. I travelled 7hours with a naso tang in a 3L bucket without any problems. Just open lid now and then for new oxygen and your good.
