Where did you order him from?Well, it looks like I may have ordered my favorite fish yesterday
Wow, great list's and stories! I’ve had good luck over the years with Live Aquaria, even with all of the horror stories around. However, a lot of my fish were ora, or divers den so not as bad lol. As for the anthias, i also just ordered a trio of Sri Lankan lyretails that i will be using an auto feeder for in time. I’m home all day and already feed multiple times per day but will definitely enjoy and require something automatic for certain foods. Keep the list's comingWhere did you order him from?
So here's the thing, some of my favorite fish have long moved on to blue oceans. I'm not much of a photographer so I rarely take pictures.
I'd probably not try these again for various reasons:
Sargassum fish (Histrio histrio) - Kept him in a sargassum tank that I replenished the seaweed every few weeks. Ambush predator, prehensile pectoral fins, Best camo I've ever seen. You could be staring directly at the fish and not see it. Below is a wiki picture since I have none.
Queen angel: My brother caught me a juvi. So beautiful. Then it decided to go carpet surfing I still want a angel of sorts, anyone know of one for a 125 G that won't tear my lps and sps to shreds?
Fish that I'm chasing:
Anthias - I haven't gotten one yet, I hear they require frequent feeding. Would love to get one, but still doing a little more research on the best way to feed through the day. Anyone use an automatic feeder for these guys?
Purple tang - Pricey fish, agressive. Will likely be one of the last I add.
Also note that some of my favorite fish are not tied to the species but the individual fish. For example, my first midas blenny was awesome. He'd come up to the glass when I was near, follow my finger for food. Absolute gem. My current midas is a chicken who bullies my clowns as if 125 gallons wasn't big enough. For whatever reason those 3 fish hang out in roughly the same 10 gallons of the entire tank! Ugh.
