    Hi all

    I'm new to marine tanks. I used to breed koi fish & was extensively involved with all aspects koi keeping which included medications, consulting, importing etc.

    I'm fascinated with the marine life & tank setups. I currently have 2 small tanks, 1 about 60cm & the other about 1m. I get all the pumps etc extremely cheap as a dealer through the company that import the equipment. I only have 4 clown fish at fhe moment to see how long I can keep them before going bigger & more fish.

    Can anyone tell me where in PE is the best place to snorkel if I want to try catch some colourful marine fish for my tanks? I know they need to be quarantined an so on. Keeping saltwater marines is different from koi but the basics & filters setups stay mostly the same.

    Is that by the N2 bridge in the river itself or where exactly is this?

    Never thought of snorkelling in Swartkops to find colourful fish & corals, interesting.

    Hello and Welcome chrismaritz

    Just ensure that whatever you catch can life in that size aquariums and will not outgrow them quickly. You need then to upgrade. Cannot just put fish back in the ocean if they came into contact with fishes from other parts of the world
