    Little chocolate dip damsels, even if you want a pair of clowns the local ones we get in Natal are called Allardi's

    Quite a few of those dragonets around but they're very tricky to spot. Synchiropus stellatus if you want to google what it looks like.

    Nah you won't usually see clowns in shallow water. They're at Aliwal and some of the other offshore areas.

    Jumping bean or a dusky angel would be fine in that size setup as well. Gotta have a dwarf angel! ;)
