Scuba and Fish

This summer I'm getting my Scuba license and a fishing permit so I can scuba and catch some cool fish for my future salt water tank.

Is this possible to do, I mean would wild fish adjust to life in a tank?

I have a 20 gallon tank with Guppies, swordtails, platys, a snail, Otos, Corys, and an Birchir.

Kool to do it your self, good luck.
In Queensland Australia we can take 90% of stuff as long as Its for your own specimen tank with out a fishing license. We are not to take Giant Clams,Corals, some certain fish and not to take from Green Zones.
95% of my fish I collect and after a few years I take them back to swap for smaller stuff. Will take a pic of what we use to catch fish, its great!
