    yeah... Pretoria. That is if my boss do not sent me somewhere on a short notice.

    BTW. It is not always nice... Luckily in January I had the change to meet Crispin. And what a weekend. And what a person. I understand him getting overboard with persons who persist doing it wrong. he cares about the livestock more than other peoples views. That was really a nice weekend, One I will keep in memory.

    This trip to Lisbon, actually I'm outside Lisbon, in Oeiras. With basically nothing around me. So after work, pretty k@k. At least had a nice Saturday night with some other connection I know out is Cascais. (to the west of Lisbon):) -possible new future boss :(. Well Taxi back here was another 19euro. R190 plus. Yikes....

    Anyway, see Pretoria soon.

    They have a central tank 5 000 000 L Now that is a tank. With all the sharks, rays etc. Sun fish most interesting. What I found interesting was that they have Copperbands in there. Small group of 3 swimming together. Feeding time they must really be careful. So even with their bright colours compared to a barracuda the other fish leave them alone.

    Feeding 150KG food per week.... Not using a water from the ocean. Prepare own RO with salt mix.

    Then around they represent 4 oceans. Indian / Northern Atlantic / Antarctic and Pacific

    But in their Indian they have the standard Nemo setup, and a very nice size softy and LPS tanks. Sorry, no proper SPS setup.

    Very interesting colours, blue and green yellow etc cold water anemones.

    They do not have a lot of smaller species specific setups. But they have one enormous Indo/Caribean setup. Photo posted above. Even taking my time, I was done in 2 hours.

    I've been to the oceanarium in Genoa Italy. I think the Italy one is better. Then U-Shaka.
