Yeah, I saw the pair of filefish and thought whats better than one filefish? Well two would be the answer. lol I like how they are odd shaped and look a little weird so even if they dont eat aipastia they will be a cool set of fish to have. I always wonder how liveaquaria knows if a pair is mated or not, lol, I mean they dont know hwo they were captured so how could they tell?
Maybe they have seperate tanks where they try and pair up multiple filefish? Theres bound to be a couple who pair up if you stick 20-30 in one tank... Right?

lol I guess....I hope they dont just grab two and say "mated". hehehe

They are out of stock in the regular store of these filefish and only had the pair in the divers den, so I guess it would be safe to say these are the only two they have.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My LFS has two painted filefish...super cool looking fish. Look like cartoons. I think two was the way to go.

These are the bristletail filefish that I ordered, nothing fancy but they have the best rep for eating aipastia. I am however excited about the rabbitfish, its a blue spotted one which I have never seen in any lfs locally. I have always been a little put off by the venomous tines, but I figure i'm a big girl now so maybe its time to try one.

I had a blonde naso tang in my cart too, but decided to wait a bit for that. I still want minimum one more tang and this one is almost a must have unless you guys have any bad stories you want share. lol I may just skip the 2nd tang though and call it good with the rabbitfish being the new large fish to go with the naso.

Blonde Naso (male) is on my list too. They are great looking fish, especially when they get the streamers. I think that the Rabbitfish was an excellent choice too. I want some kind of Rabbitfish (spotted, scribbled) just not sure which and will probably get whatever comes along first.

Moved a few more corals over, now have a mushroom rock and my cinnamon palys in the tank. Had a stupid majano on the palys and I totally nuked him with almost a full syringe of kalkwasser. I also moved a blue clove polyp rock over but I think there are aipastia on it so I went through it and nuked what I could.
I want to bring over some of my big colonies of palys but they have aipastia on them of course.....I was gonna bring the rock in the garage and cleave it in half to get rid of those sob's, I have a sledge hammer which I figure should get the job done! lol
Also gonna swap out the 12 bulb t5 fixture maybe later today and use that until the leds get here on Friday. Yes Friday, they shipped yesterday ups but arent gonna be delivered for a week, not sure what thats all about, a week seems so far away.
Other than that I will probably do some tank maintenance on the other tanks, still have to replace the aqualifter on the 125g, this one is failing AGAIN. CANNOT wait til I have no hang on overflows and just drilled tanks. lol

Aqualifters are funny things. I had one that I thought "failed" and wasn't working with my ATO. I switched it out with the aqualifter on my HOB overflow and it worked like a charm! I agree with you when it comes to the end of HOB overflows...I can't stand mine anymore. Come home from a 16 hour shift to find the significant other on the couch with the dog right beside the aquarium...ready to overflow if there is was anything left in the ATO jug and it sucking air like no one's business. Sick of that game...but rarely happens, only when algae gums up the overflow. Being precautious this doesn't happen nearly as often.

Since I am a hoarder of all things fish, I have accumulated like 10 of those aqualifters. I plan on sending them in with the $5 warranty fee and getting them all fixed. lol I only have one backup and that gotta go in today or tomorrow, I have like no suction at all. :-(

Happy to report my cinnamon palys have opened wide in the new tank! They are about an inch each, I have seen them get to be like 3 inches each, cannot wait for that! This is the one coral I have until recently been unable to obtain. I have wanted them for years and am so stoked that they are doing well. Gonna cement them in soon too, they are currently on a small rock,.
