    Juvenile Golden trevally.
    they get huge and are predators. definitely not suited for the home aquarium.

    Yeeeeeeah this is more like something uShaka would have...most certainly not for your average home tank.

    Rather peeved off about them. I askedfor a fish that would school together and this is what he suggested. They do school, but he said they wouldnt get any bigger than this. Last time he will see me. Bloody asshole

    about 3 years ago I did see some at a LFS in Pretoria east (not a sponsor)
    Small, about 3cm. Nice looking. Went home and used Google.

    thats close to reality....but not quite there....

    once youve had a marine tank a while you will stop taking wife and kids so they dont see how much you actually spend on this hoby. believe you me, its best to keep the cost of that Achilies tang to youself, esle you gonna be matching you marine hobby costs R for R for high heeled shoes and computer games:p
