Thanks Lefty!

I have both good and bad news though. :-( I found the goatifsh on the sandbed this morning, looks like he's been dead for at least 24hrs. The good news is, I found the yellow wrasse!! I was beyond shocked when he swam out this morning, looked at me, got chased by the blue wrasse and then dove back into the sand. I was certain he was a goner, it's been like 3 weeks at least since he went MIA. So found a fish, lost a fish.........

I know, right? That seems to be my luck though...

I'm also going to check out a white tail bristletooth tang this week!!! One of my LFS emailed me and said they got one in by mistake. I find it hard to believe that someone local has been able to get one while I've been on the liveaquria waiting list since before Christmas for the same fish. But if he has it I'm getting it. He;s had it in qt for 2 weeks so far so it should be good to go. That would almost finish stocking this tank. I really want another goatfish and I think I want to add a lawnmower blenny as well. THEN I will be fully stocked and I can just enjoy the tank.

Can't believe it's been so long to get this tank stocked, but it's probably a good thing. lol

I know! No one can actually get one, they ALL say they can but they never do. lol

This guy says it was mis shipped as an orange shoulder tang but he said no way no how was it actually that fish. I get to go check it out either wednesday or thursday, I get paid on wednesday so I wanna get him asap if it's the right fish.

I'm going tomorrow to check out the tang. Very excited to see if it looks like it does online. lol

Not sure if I mentioned it yet, but the goatfish didn't make it. :-( Took 2 days to find his body. I really really want another one so I am on the lookout for one. Not a single fish even messed with goatie once so it wasn't aggression that got him, probably should have bought from a more reputable store is my guess.

Hiya Carey, did you get round to having a look at that whitetailed tang? I've asked my Lfs to try order me one in, they said they've never had one before but will try and get me one. I won't be holding my breath tho and will probably settle for a tomini or a kole instead.

The tang i went to look at was not the one I wanted. :-( It was a bristletooth just not red. :-(

It's going on 8 months or more that i have been waiting for this fish, I wonder if anyone can get one. lol
