Off to a good start

Well i picked up a set of true percs today from my LFS. i call them a set as they had them kept singly in side by side tanks, so they arn't a true pair yet. They are both still small and young (the black around their stripes almost touches the black on the other stripe) after freaking me out with a playing dead routine, they got in my tank after acclimation and sorta just let the current float them all around at an almost sideways angle they are now happily netted together and swimming normally (i put them in the net because i was so scared they were not going to make it and about 5 seconds after playing dead and laying on the sides of the net they just got up and acting normal)

Pics will come later when i turn lights on for tomorrow.

~also picked up 2 nice green and purple pieces of tunga live rock that i've got in a bucket waiting to be scrubbed and cured
