    The Umlazi river. Here is pipe fish and seahorses. I used the swimming pool net to catch the mysis and somtimes a few pipe fish with them, i put the pipe fish back. It help slot with food sours. My seahorses all they know is fresh mysis every day.

    I also stay in the city for many years, the live is so different from city live. Afternoons on beech, sometimes take away super on the beech, weekends like spending 90min to try to catch a pistol shrimp and the shrimp still laughs.

    Can you post a pic of live mysis i'd love to see if i can catch some here in durbs but have no idea what to look for any ideas where a good place to try for them here in durbs maybe umgeni estuary, we use to catch tons of freshwater ones from the river back in the days. Im assuming the mysis doesnt grow as big as the freshwater ones which are usually around 3cm. Triggers look lovely
