I got plenty of fish for you


Perfect photo of perfect fish. Well done


And this answered what I asked on riches thread. I have the same thought about a group of scopes vs yellow tangs.

Thanks, small change this morning, the s scopas is still glass surfing and when the rescue came in to the display earlier it was the yellow that squared up, the s scopas ignored it!

Looking good Simon. Love that Scopas. My Tomini is becoming less shy, still hides if I pull out the camera or my phone, but will come hang out at the front of the tank if I go sit in front of it...pic from across the room

It will settle, gorgeous fish and it looks like a nice coral haul you had.

I ended up with a baby purple instead of a Tomini for the time being. I love that mushroom @Scratch08

Thats some pretty crazy lateral line erosion. How long have you had it?

That is the scar that is left, it came into my lfs in March with hlle as an inch plus fish that had been in a very small tank with a very poor diet and would not eat, I went in every day for a week and managed to get it eating, hand fed macro by day 4 and then it would basically eat anything.
I gave it a couple of weeks and once it was recovering I paid for it but the shop kept it for 6 months as I wasn't sure where to put it.
It has at least trebled in size already over that time frame and with hindsight I should have brought it home when it was smaller.
Early doors at my lfs. :)

I was watching the tank as the lights started to ramp up and thought how nice the ricordia was looking.
... but something was wrong!
No green background, the rock with the bounce shrooms on was missing!
Emergency arm in, where the rock had landed it was squashing one of them against the scape, watch them both let go now.
The only thing that could have moved them is a mithrax, ho hum! :rolleyes:

Due to the above issue I took some pics.
This explains the the second pic, that is the biggest of the shrooms and is really expanding trying to reach out of the shade.

This one seems ok.

DSC_0005 (1024x700).jpg


I think this is the one that got squished.

Fluffy shroom.

I went to my lfs yesterday, sneak preview, it's very sulky as you can see. ;)

I did take a few pics yesterday but didn't post them because I was annoyed about the cloudy water = engineer goby.
Spongodes from the front, the tips have gone an amber colour so I need to check if that is right, good pe. :)

Tried to get the pavona in, there is more bottom left.
You have to trust me that the black blob is the bcg, it owns the pavona and very rarely strays. :)

The back shelf, the remains of the stylo are now gone and the cabbage has been moved back a touch, the shroom is on that other skeleton. ;)

The blasto frag.
Just moved, that is exactly where I want it but I need to get it on the rock.
It is on a plug (glue?) on putty and there are 5 or 6 babies, obviously I would like to pop it off the plug but I don't know if any of the babies are attached to the plug, I will take it out and have a good look when I do it. ;)

Every time I decide on getting an engineer goby I read a post of yours and have second thoughts.
Decisions

They are great fish but you need to be aware that they will dig deep dark places and release crud, my tank hovers near a mini cycle all the time now and I have given up on acros, I knew what I was potentially taking on, you do clean clean sand back though! ;)

It will be going in a new tank if I get one. Figured between all the leopard wrasse and an engineer goby storing up sandI wouldn’t need to clean. Love the eel like movement without having an eel
