Okey dokey! I haven't updated this thread in a while and believe me, I have some updates.

Bad news first; I am going to have to return the Checkerboard Wrasse. While I am a big fan of the little guy, I didn't realize how much of a terror he may become on crustaceans down the road when I bought him. I did do research prior to buying the fish, but obviously not enough...(hides under chair ) He will probably be going back within the next week. It's sad, but for the better.

The good news; I picked up a Foxface Rabbitfish a little over a week ago and he is doing great! The fish is actually really small, in fact, the fish shop owner said he usually doesn't order them this small but his dealer convinced him to since it was a good batch that was healthy and doing well. He seems pretty happy, other than changing into his "stress colors" every now and then. Interestingly, he doesn't really care at all for any frozen food that I feed the other fish (mysis, brine). But he does really dig flakes. I'll be honest, I never imagined I would own a fish that would gladly accept marine flakes but turn down mysis and brine, but hey, that's okay! He also picks at the seaweed I attach to the clip. Maybe the reason he doesn't care much for the shrimp stems from their preference for vegetable matter, but herbivorous fish I have had in the past all enjoyed frozen shrimp too.

I also ordered my official lights! They are two 32 inch SBreeflights.

Thank you so much for following and reading this update. I am going to post some pictures of the Foxface in a second.

Oops, this post was for uploading pictures, which I am having trouble doing.



P.S. sorry for the salt creep and algae, this pictures are a few days old and all that has been cleaned up by now.
