    Hi Guys.

    My house has finally sold and now the time is coming close for the BEEG move the Port Edward.:thumbup:

    I do not know the area there that well yet, so I am unsure of where to find the best pet shops on the hibuscus coast.

    Can any of you guys offer some advice / guidance?

    Don't know of any good shops in the port Edward area, been there a few times on vacation. The rock pools have great life, seen cleaner wrasse,chromis,lionfish,butterflies,tangs,etc etc. You can get a permit and try to catch a few fish in the pools, also some great xenias ant zoa's. The best shops would still be near Durban.

    Yup, When we went down there to go house hunting, I had a look at the pools in Glenmore and saw hundreds of fish and zoa's in the pools.

    Lots of lawnmower blennies, one or two tangs, some silver and black triped fish that I couldnt identify off hand, etc...

    Is was spectacular :D

    My main concern is getting food for the fish and inverts and replacement lights as and when needed. Cant drive to durban every month. :(

    I live a 2 hours drive from the nearest marine shop. I always buy in bulk when needed, having a light or two extra if something happens and a lot of extras. You can make your own food from stuff you get from the local grocer or even the rock pools. Also there will always be someone that will have to go to Durban for business, make friends with them as they can pick up some stuff at the pet shop if you need it.

    Thank you for the reply

    That is basically what I was thinking.

    I'll be running another branch of my web business from Port edward so will probably have to drive to durbs every now and then.

    What is the best shop in durbs or surrounds for marine?
