    Thought TASA would be interested in this.
    I saw it this morning, battery operated fish. They mimic the movement of real fish quite well IMHO.

    Eish.. But Why? Plastic plants I can understand, but having fake fish is like only having to choose from the Wimpy breakfast menu at night..:blink: Not for me thanks.

    Thanks for sharing though. Good to see what the world is up to.

    Yeah Im not a fan of it either. I just thought the idea was cool.
    Even the way those fish grouped together in the corner like they were all eating something - Gotta love technology

    @ryanj252 please PM me where you found these. Would love some for my pool.

    Please note that I prefer real plants and fish but for the pool, this will be cool

    Incase anyone else also wants to order some:

    The manufacturer is Takara Tomy Arts
    The toy is called "Robofish"

    The company is based in Tokyo, and the toy has been released this year only.

    You can order them from Zuru
    Zuru Robo Fish - Orange Clown Fish - Buy it at Mighty Ape NZ

    Im not sure what the shipping specs are for SA though..

    Best fishing lure ever... You could sit on the boat having a cold beer while fishing for game-fish, way more fun than carp fishing IMO :)
