Well when the Bassmasters measure their fish, they count the tail

That's one very pretty pet you have there.

I put the fish in the tank this weekend. The other tang and angel stayed away...lol. The size difference is pretty obvious.





And most of my fish are in this pic except the watchman, male clown (he's in the anemone guarding the eggs) and 2 dispars.

He looks really good. I am very happy with my recent addition of a powder brown. Mine is still eating really good after being added to the main. I am sure yours is too. They are awesome looking fish. Especially when they flare their fins up with that nice orange stripe and flourescent blue outline.

Great pics. I see you have 'finger football' nor fold down perfectly. How do you keep the clip in place? My tang and foxface pull mine of the glass sometimes as they rip a piece off.

It looks like it's tied to a rock in that pic.

Thanks all.

The football works nice The clip is zip tied to a small piece of lr. I use a long piece of rigid airline with a plastic hook on the end to put it in the tank and pull out the empty clip. I just hook the zip tie. It works great. I don't even get my hands wet. The fish know the airline means food and they go wild as soon as I put it in to pull out the empty clip.

I have been doing that football trick to after seeing a thread about it on here. It has been working great for my two tangs. Are you suposed to put the Nori towards the bottom of the tank? I typically see it down there, but I just put the suction cup right at the surface. Does it make any difference whatsoever?

I don't think it matters.
