Yes, a Latezonatus clownfish. Unfortunately, the male jumped when my display leaked and I moved them to a stock tank. I’m back on the search for a juvenile again.

Tassel Filefish. Like my Pug so ugly it’s cute. Swims like a helicopter pivoting in all axis. Never bothers other fish or softies but gets quite large and nobody bothers him. Always picking at rocks with a bang. Eats any food. Only advice is never mix with a cleaner wrasse. They think all the tassels are food. Not nice.

My favourite fish happens to the then best I ever kept and luckily still keep in my tank.
They're not easy to find in this region and so tricky to introduce and get to settle notnto mention how prone to disease they are. I luckily scored a good specimen after around 10 years of trying and he's still in the tank. I'm lucky he's not aggressive to the other tangs.

My all time favourite fish. Mandarine. Just bought a captive bred one and praying it stays alive. Close second and third are my yasha and blue spotted Jawfish
