He's still about the size of a golf ball. Well it's really like a golf-ball with fins and a tail. He wouldn't fit in a golf ball - it looks like he swallowed one.

Get a fish trap from your LFS, you will have them out of that tank quick.

When I first heard of the angler / frogfish, I found a great YouTube video about a white frogfish. The thing I liked most was watching him perched on what appears to be a big tonga branch. I tried to duplicate the same feel in my tank, and just as I hoped, he does use it often.

Also got some new additions: a Pom Pom crab (pictured) and two porcelain crabs that are incredibly cool, though timid.

Added the tanks only other "official" inhabitant: A long-nosed hawk.

Also purchased an awesome bushy acro, but to my dismay, I placed it on the sandbed for last night to start acclimating to my lights, and when I got up this morning it's already half bleached. Here are the pics, and as you can see the before and after of acro after <24 hours.

I read that long-nose hawks like to hang out in red seafans to use as camo. I know they are hard to keep, so for now I added a fake one. Here we go:
