    The 2nd link on recreation fishing has the lists on what you may not catch for an aquarium and it also lists all protected areas.

    According to that list, apart from Sea Fans and Sea Pens, it would appear that, as long as you have the relevant permit, you may collect any soft corals from our waters, but not SPS or LPS as these are (in my opinion) both in the Hard Coral (Scleractinia) category. It also seems like you may collect invertebrates as well, excluding clams.

    "(b) keep a log-book indicating all additions to the aquarium (including those bred or hatched in the aquarium) and losses, indicating the species, origin, and cause of loss."

    Doubt anyone adheres to this :whistling:

    It refers to Act No. 18 of 1998, so you will have to read that as well.
