    Hi Guys

    im thinking of opening a petshop in the durban area which mainly deals in marine, i have many suppliers of livestock and equipment already, just want to know if anybody with knowledge or experiance in this game could tell me a little more about trading livestock, im well aware of care for livestock so that shouldnt be a problem.

    Thanks
    solly

    You know it's illegal to export livestock, Ismail.

    Would that be exporting local caught fish?

    Do you have a collection and export permit?

    Do you have experience in keeping marines?
    Clients will very fast stop buying if they find your livestock to be of bad quality!

    Hi @Solly, welcome.

    Please excuse me for asking, but your very first post said that you have "developed a passion for marines" , then later on you said that you have kept many reefs before, which I found a bit weird ?

    But now I see that the post is edited and those comments removed ?

    Also when a user edits a post you normally see this in the bottom corner but its not there ? You will see my edit in the bottom right and also the time of edit ?
