    Hey bud was great to meet you aswell, well want to look for some zoo's and maybee some hermits and snails, I think I I could find a stunning fish or two that would be an added bonus...I know there are permits I kneed to get I was told there are two that I need. The one would be for collecting zoo's inverts for the aquarium use and the othe is for fish.. Am I correct in saying this...

    1 permit you can get from the post office the other you can't.

    So best go and get them from KZN Wildlife. 3 Elton Road.

    Fish is not that easy to catch or I'm doing something very wrong. There is nice zoo's at Chaka's rock. But if you don't have high intensity light they are slow to open up
