Hi everyone I have not posted here in ages , We live alongside our Indian ocean and we catch local Indian Ocean fish . What I want to know is it possible to say to someone hey.... that LPS coral you have there in your tank is local Or hey ........that goldie you caught it local . Just want to know what you all think if this is nonsense or not . If I buy a racoon butterfly fish from a pet store to me it is not possible to say if he is local or not I would say he is native to the Indian Ocean . We certainly do have some things in one region you will not get in another place . Like in Australia you get the Blue ringed Octopus , but yet you do not get them here but still it is the Indian Ocean . I am not talking about those type of things i am talking about very common things like certain species of LPS and local fish that you can import as well . I have all my invoices for stuff i bought through the years but what if those invoices fade so much you can't read them anymore . This has happened to me , how will you prove then that you bought your sun coral and did not remove it .
