Nice pics...look like ocellaris to me.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I second the Ocellaris.. True Perculas tend to have thicker black bands and usually command a higher price..

I have a 46 bow reef set up running myself with the same 36" Coralife Lunar Aqualight that your talking about.. My suggestion to you, would be drop all of the Cromis and your stock list will be fine.. My stock list is as follows:

2 TR Saddleback Clowns
1 Solar Fairy Wrasse
1 Bi-Color Blenny
1 Orange Spotted Watchman

Plenty of snails, with minimal hermits.. Got tired of the hermits lynching my snails, and snails do a better job of cleaning anyway.. Cleaner Shrimp and Cucumber..

This is my stocking list in my 50 FOWLR:

(1) Pink Spotted Watchman Goby
(1) Flame Angel


(3) blue/green chromis

Some might say that I'm overstocked, but this arrangement has been stable for months. I did add stock slowly and let the bio-filtration keep up with things, but I have no problems with water quality, aggression, or anything at all really. It's a nice, peaceful community tank. You might not have to scrap the chromis, at least not all of them. Just go slow and everything from your original list plus a few chromis would probably be fine.

Hi! for the Macro setting try angeling your camera down a little - not straight on.. of course be very still and my camera, not sure about all, has a push the button 1/2 way to get the picture focused perfectly... then snap.. maybe yours has that as well.

What kind of camera?... we have a few ... I could look for you.

Congrats on the new clowns BTW, very pretty

My Camera is a Sony DSC-P150 - 7.2mp, and I was taking the pics using the "P" Program Mode, and tired both ISO 400 and AUTO, and of course Macro Mode.

I have a small tripod that I was using it, and my Sony has the same 1/2 Button push for AutoFocus. The rest of the pics I took (that I didn't) post didn't capture the fish well at all as they were moving and blurry. I also tried one of the High Speed Shutter Scene Setting, and don't think there was enough light (even in the lighted tank) without the flash to get the pic to turn out well.
