Yay! Finally my first SW fish

I found an amazing store today and have finally added my first fish after almost 2 months of waiting. Just picked up a lawnmower blenny, he is too cute! I also got a Bali sea hare, not as cute to you guys maybe, but he looks so neat.

Now to get my black clown fish and I'll be set. they are supposed to be ordering me a set for thursday.

I'm sooo excited. The blenny just perches on a rock and stares at me.

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

Very cute! Make sure to feed the sea hare dried algae if he runs out of algae in the tank. Is the lawnmower blenny eating? I heard they are hard to get eating frozen foods. I had one years ago in our first saltwater tank and if i remember correctly he ate just fine and lived pretty long (until the tank crashed from disease)

The blenny has already been eating algae and I even tried some flake food and he loved it. I have enough hair algae for the sea hare for quite some time. And I got the seaweed sheets

He immediately went to work on the back side of a rock. I love posting photos so as soon as I can get him.... he is so ugly he is cute. he is only about 2 inches long.

Aww they are so cute! I liked the blue one. Too bad about his life span. :-(
