When you have an engineer goby and a cave goby you get used to random piles of sand.
I was looking at the tank but not this spot and out of the corner of my eye I saw a bright yellow *flash* shoot behind the sand pile.
The only thing that yellow in the tank is the ycg and it doesn't do sand.
I'm sure it was a ywg I added with a pistol a couple of years ago, never seen after day one!
I don't hear the pistol if it is still alive, I will observe! ;)

What’s this Tang called Simon (I’ve forgot!) is it a scopas or something?

And the tanks looking ‘sweet’

It is called a xanthic scopas, a yellow scopas, it shows a lot of blue subtly, I am rubbish at fish pics, corals sit stiller! ;)
Do you have any plastic bags, well 2 for double bagging, and maybe a UPS express drop off point near you in Bristol?

I think hes looking a little cramped and needs to stretch his fins! Lol

I need to figure out how to get good pics of these two, because I don't turn my flow off just to take pics it is hard work trying to freeze them. ;)

Simon, you're using a Nikon for your pics, correct? What lens and settings are you using? I've been playing with mine (no laughing ;Hilarious), and getting way better pics than with my phone...but still not great.

Yours, as always, are beautiful. ;Woot

Thanks, this is a high ISO of 1000, F 6.3 and 1/400, to get proper coral pics I knock the ISO down to more like 2 - 300.
Have the tip of the lens touching the glass and the camera horizontal or you will get distortion, it limits your angle of view of the subject but any angle or being not horizonal kills pictures.
Try it and see what happens and give me a shout, don't pick something too close as there is a minimum distance they will focus at.
Those were with a Nikon 40 mm macro lens.

Do you have a frag tank, frag rack or some other place for coral frags currently?
