New fish/bad pics

So...my sixline has been nibbling on my xenia for a while (although not to the point of killing it) and I suspect it has started nibbling on my SPS....he had to go. So when I was at the LFS today, I got a replacement. We'll see how this one does. It is an African Flameback Angel (C. acanthops), I have had a brazillian flameback (C. aurantonotus) with no problems in the past. The difference between the two is the brazillian has a blue/purple tail and the African has an orange/translucent tail.

Here he is still in the bag.


Another in the bag...


About an hour after I released him...


another...


I'm in the process now of trapping the red lipped blenny (although it may not become necessary), as soon as the fish was released...the red lipped blenny started chasing it and harrassing it. If I trap the blenny it's gonna spend a few days in the fuge....

Ugh!! After touting "The Trap" to Michealprater, it failed...first time in 5 years I think it had to do with already trapping the six line today and the lack of space in my tank. Because of the size of my tank and the size of the trap...there wasn't any place to put it where the mouth of the trap was near any of the blennies perches. I think it will be OK, the blenny still chases the angel, but his heart isn't in it....

Thanks for the compliments on the pics Here are a few that I think are better...

I cant wait till I can afford to get my flameback out of layaway. Good looking fish.

P.S. I am still going to try the trap.
