    Depends on the individual personality. Some powder blues could care less about non tangs, some hate anything that swims, most fall somewhere in between.

    Yeah, the guy that dives for them upped his prices once he realized how much he was missing out on...
    At least most of that money provides a livelihood for a guy and his family in Kwajalein, where otherwise there would be no means to provide.
    The us govt has subjugated these people and relegated their lives to be moved around like cattle, disregarded their land (atomic/ballistic testing) and provided no respectable social services for them; and they all live on a stretch of land about as big as the mag mile in Chicago!
    :eek:

    My C. exquisitus has this white on his nose. Could I be from jumping and hitting the lid?
    Also I was told it is from Africa but it doesn't look like it to me. Could someone clear that up?
    Thanks guys

    As long as the nose isn't getting worse I wouldn't worry about it.

    It looks like a Kenyan variant to me.

    Does anyone have experience with C. roseafascia? I've read they are on the aggressive side but are we talking Scotts aggressive. I have a 315 with several fairies.

    I have experience with a few. From what I have seen, they get bigger than most fairy wrasses, so are usually at the top of the hierarchy, but they aren't as bad as Scott's or whipfins.

    There is simply no way I can spend that kind of dough on livestock. About 9-10yrs ago a pr cost that much. I can't bring myself to get a female for that.

    And of the Anampses the lennardi seems to be especially sensitive to temp.

    Way too much even if the survival chances were better!

    The Bell's is a little tempting but I'm not sure flasher's live long enough to justify that kind of money!

    TJ, I'm assuming a C. johnsoni and C. isoscoles would not do well together?
