    @clonetrooper @Perky Pets You guys should have contacted me to get this on the home page, I've just stumbled across this thread now, 5 days later, lol. I'm going to move it into the normal forum and display it on the home page. This is a nice event and needs to be given a bit more exposure. :)

    OK cool.is the display tank lit by sunlight or do u have aquarium lighting on the tank? Sorry for all the questions,haven't been there since the upgrade and wana see if I can possibly organise frags that will do best in the lighting available in the display tank.I might have a small frag of something nice but it won't colour up well in a sunlit aquarium tho..will turn brown

    I just happen to be in Cape Town at the moment, does anyone have any bright ideas for getting corals from CT to Pretoria? (I'm going back by plane in 2 weeks' time; I don't imagine they're acceptable hand luggage :p ) Maybe there's someone who could hang onto a couple of frags for me and then courier them up when I'm back? And if I can find someone to do that, maybe we could try and arrange some for other unfortunate Gautengers as well? Either way, looking forward to being there!
