    I think that's the second goldenback I've seen photos of?

    They have a real openwater speedster look to them, don't they?

    Rhinecanthus assasi
    Not terribly flashy or colorful and similar to the much more common Rhinecanthus aculeatus, but still a perennial favorite for me.

    I've had a bursa, somewhat underrated; if you really look the intricate colorful lines in red and yellow are quite beautiful. Slow growing and are mostly laid back, will eat your cuc.

    I loved my Blue throat...till he killed all my anthias and then went carpet surfing 3 days later.

    No more for me.
