You guys must let me know next time you go diving at Umhlanga! Will be a nice change from Bluff and Isipingo areas.

I'd have swapped it an ice cream for the fish! I'm lank generous like that.
You and about half of Durban will be heading to that "location". It'll look like Grey Street on Saturday morning.

I dived two weeks ago, saw millions of painted crays, and one boxer, millions of chocolate dips, then this past weekend I saw one chocolate dip, one painted cray, but millions of boxers all in pairs, on the same reefs, how can they be abundant one week, and nothing the next,

Nope. . . Only Bagman! But he's ok! It struggles to catch sea cucumbers, so it's all good.

lol, you making enimies to the north of you now?

I did get a semi, about 2-3cms, chucked in the dt as I have a few aipitasia, and it whacked all the apataisia in a day, picked on a few favities, but otherwise all the shrooms, star polyps and xenia is fine, a real tough and cheecky little one though, the next day it was eating flake and frozen, and now 4 days later it is almost eating out the cup, I still think angels are the best fish.

Yup, you must see my semis shred majano anems from my fellow collectors, and aptasia that comes in on my LR from the sea.
