It's the whatever that catches your eye that will get ya in the end. LOL

I've been caught up in that before and usually I get the wrong fish. Like the scooter, caught my eye but was a bad idea. Or the sand perch that I loved so much looks wise. I would say start researching your head off so you can be prepared when you see a super cool fish you want. You know the LFS isnt gonna be a wealth of good information. hehe I was gonna pull the trigger on a yellow anthias today but was uncertain so i didn't get it. Just in case. I forgot my fish book so I couldn't look it up either. :-(

Yep, a knobby star, very un reef safe but a beautiful starfish. I plan on adding one to my fowlr 90g too.

I like both the flame hawk and the longnose! I plan on a flame hawk in the 90g. As far as clowns, I;d wait for the ones you REALLY want as you can only have one pair per tank don't forget.

As far as the scooter dragonet, I can't really say I would encourage anyone to get one. I got mine by mistake and was lucky enough that I could switch him to prepared foods as all he ate initially were pods.

I would get a Black Ice Clown. They are so awesome looking! Scooters and Mandarins are awesome, but I wish they weren't so difficult to care for .

i was naming everything that was at the store i wanted...

i was also informed about the scooter blenny from the local fish store so thats a plus. the owner is a good guy and it seems he is very patient with returning customers, understands costumer loyalty. he did mention a product to feed the manderins and the scooters.

he had a flame hawk that i almost walked out with but he said the hawk wasnt looking too good. he did not push the sale. i took that cue and left him in the store.

there is another one in town that looks great though. i may have to go get him. i suppose i will wait for the black ice. although the picassos i saw where pretty close. they also had the aussy black clowns. still young and just a touch of orange on the nose but that should go away with time.

what do you guys think about getting the bw now and then the black ice when i can?

hold on ill get the name of the food too so if anyone knows about it they can share... nutramar ova


what else did i want to mention??? idk it will come to me latter,
