Just couldn't resist.....

Resistance is Futile!
Excuse the poor pic. I was watching this baby for a while, so I kept a light on over the qt to get some algae growing for the tang and didn't clean the glass.



The fish is about 5 1/2". That's 1 of those plastic fw caves (I bought it about 25 yrs ago so dunno if they still make them) and it barely fits in the opening. It's already eating mysis and devouring nori. I usually qt fish for 2 weeks and if they look good and are eating good I put them in the main tank. This fish looks clean, but it may stay some extra time in qt.

Nice fish, looks like the one I have in QT right now. It may just become my favorite fish.
When I put mine in the QT every once in awhile he was flashing up against stuff. So to be cautious (knowing the reputation of powder browns) I did hypo salinity treatment. Next Tuesday I'm going to start to bring the salinity back up. I can't wait to get it into the main tank. Mine also devours any food I put in there regardless of nori, mysis, pellet, flake. And I thought they were suposed to be finicky eaters.

I do like my Powder Brown....They can become aggressive, mine is the bully of the tank.

Very nice pick up!
