Mostly in rock pools, did snorkel for 1 or 2 frags, but was shallow. Fish depends on exact location and time of year, the only real guarantee for a rock pool is a blenny.The local zoas that you collected a few pages back. Were they in rock pools or did you have to snorkel to get them. Also what fish will one be able to catch in rock pools?
Most of them are reef safe, but brown and drab unfortunately. Mostly Istiblennius species I think. There are also a lot of damsels in rock pools, but rather stay away from them as they are really aggressive. Oh, and you should be able to easily find convict tangs in rock pools, good algae eaters. Around January to March is your best time to find something interesting, as that is when the new juveniles come in to settle after their larval phase.What kind of blennys can one find that are reef safe?
Is there any chance of catching anything i Jeffreys Bay?Just to pique your interest, in May 2009 someone found a baby emperor angel in a rock pool on the wild coast, and there was a rumor that some kid catching random rock pool fish caught a gem tang in the rock pools by Umhlanga a few years ago.
I have tried collecting extensively at St Francis Bay, but the best I could manage were marleyi butterflies, so don’t think it will be worth it at Jeffrey’s bay. However, in PE there are a few collecting spots, guys have caught lots of moorishes at Cape Recife and in Swartkops river quite a few nice fish have come out the last few years, including a few jumping beans. It is the wrong time of year for that part of SA to collect at the moment, as cold upwellings in winter normally kills all the remaining tropicals, normally January to May is collecting time there.Is there any chance of catching anything i Jeffreys Bay?
had one before....was a nasty bugger....killed a yellow tang....and i couldnt add anything to the tank after the jumping bean. he would just go nuts.Why do you think so? I've had jumping beans that weren't aggressive at all, I'd say in my experience a yellow tang has way more attitude than any jumping bean I've had.
Eish, guess it depends on individual fish, I had a bangaii cardinal kill a bigger pajama cardinal too, some fish are just psychopaths.had one before....was a nasty bugger....killed a yellow tang....and i couldnt add anything to the tank after the jumping bean. he would just go nuts.
