I've got a possible rescue lined up, so we will see how this plays out, but I've got my fingers crossed. The owner bought two, one beat the other up, so it had no tail . Five months later, in his sump, the tail is growing back but he needs to get rid of it. This pic is from the Internet, as he can't get a good shot of his...

If I get it , it will finish recovering in my 60g reef cube and then probably go in my 240g.

That is a beautiful anthias. I'm not familiar with that guy.

Todd's 240g Build

Its a Blotched Anthias (Borbonius). They are a deepwater Anthias and apparently not easy to come by. They start at $299 on LiveAquaria. Price aside, it is a stunning fish.

They're a very nice looking fish. Quite jealous you may be getting one

I heard back from this guy and he is going to hold it for me to pick up on Sunday. I will see how it is looking then and try post pics.

They certainly are. Mine has now decided it is a fish at times and tries to swims around with the Rabbitfish and Tangs.

My Lawnmower Blenny rarely makes appearances, which is unlike any I have had before. I still have not figured out where it hides. Just when I think it is dead because I have not seen it for days, it appears.

Got it this morning! Much larger and chunkier than I expected. Kinda stressed, but looks great. Not in the tank yet...

Thanks.

I got him in yesterday, but he was looking pretty stressed...hanging out kinda sideways towards the top of the bag. He immediately went into the center cave in my rocks and I have not seen it since. Lights have been out though, so hard to see much of anything. I'm crossing my fingers on this fish. Looks incredible.
