    Yeah dude, you get a permit and you can just go collect Zoo's yourself. What a pleasure! Wish I lived by the warm ocean :)

    You should be able to get from the post office. Think it should be under R100.

    I wouldn't make it know on a public forum, as giving or selling wild caught corals is against the law.

    Hi guys - zoanthids do not count under corals under the permit. It not NOT allowed to collect any hard corals (LPS or SPS) at all under the permit. Zoanthids are considered invertebrates.

    Warr - I do agree with you that it should not be "advertised" that corals that are collected, are shared in any way. Even though there's no clarity on whether the life stock are or are not allowed to be given away....

    BTW: this is the exact same permit that you get for fishing, SCUBA diving, collecting bait, and for collecting marine fish for your own aquarium use. Each one of these categories cost R75...

    Wow, that's weird, not classified as corals. So would you need the same permit you require for fish collecting ?

    Will the "reef police" know Zoanthids fall under invertebrates? I don't wanna get into @$*?+!! because of uninformed people. I doubt they'll even know what a zoa is...:whistling:

    Thanks for info guys :thumbup:
