Whew, those are nice looking fish. Not sure if it would be too much yellow for my tank though.

I would love some female mccoskers. It's really hard to find them reliably though I've looked for a little bit and every place was out of stock. My LFS guy can't really tell the difference after the males have been alone for a while or get them in reliably as one gender or another

it's those females are hard to find, out was when I was looking. Most LFS get the males. They sell better because of color. I would ALWAYS keep my eyes open for them though just in case. It would really liven up the tank with the make showing off and coloring up. A buddy of mine has a selection of tile fish in his tank. He started off with an adult purple and now has a variety. They are super cool fish. I hear the difficult part with these is acclimation.

Here's is a photo before he got all the other tile fish of his tank with the purple up front. They are always out in the open when I go over there.

But due to the fact that i couldnt keep houdini out of my sump and i had no covering for my pump he got caught in the impeller and died.

So at this point i am over the semi aggressive setup now since the trigger and eel were the primary focus for my tank; Im going to return the trigger and go with something more peaceful in its place.

Ill give the snowflake another shot in a year or two when I upgrade my tank. Ill probably set up a lionfish tank that he would go good in.
I am so sorry about the loss, Mebbid.

Finger leather / Devil's hand leather

Here's an old pic of my finger leather. It looks the same, just a little bigger now.
