I'll be honest, I get to sit here and be both impressed and jealous of your free several hundred dollar fish. I've never seen one until you said 'hey look at this'. That is just really cool. Hope things turn out well with it, he doesn't look as beat up as he sounded like he could have been.

You can tell his tail was chomped down to a stub, but a lot has grown back. I guess this guy had it in his sump for 5 months and finally decided that feeding the sump wasn't working. The fish is chunky though, not at all starved looking like I guess I assumed it would be. I'm just hoping it made the drive okay, as it was not looking as good as I would have wanted when I put it in the tank.

I've been at work all day, so will see what has happened when I get home.

It is a great looking fish, but not. $250-$300 great. I'm not sure any fish is, IMO. Maybe an adult male Scribbled Angel? I'll take it for free though. I'm glad the wife and I happened to be out in his area last weekend and that nobody grabbed it last weekend.

Update...got home from work and went straight to the tank to see if the Borbonius was out. Didn't see it anywhere...looked in the cave, didn't see anything...looked down the side of the tank that's up against the wall and there is a little opening that I could see through and way in the back, I could see a big blue eye. I moved the mag-float around to clean the side and the eye was gone. Apparently it found a safe spot tucked way in the back. I'm figuring after months of being in a so, this gal is going to take a while to be brave and come out. Still alive after 24 hours works for me, for now.

She was out looking around this morning before lights were on. Still darts for the rocks if I get close, but a big step forward.

Since she is curious, I bet she will be out in no time. Wonderful little fish and very good timing for you to get it! It is a lucky fish.

Just came home and the Blonde Naso is dead. Yellow Tang, Spotted Rabbitfish, Hawk and Lawnmower all look fine. The Blonde never has shown any sign of disease, ate like a pig, seemed totally fine this morning.
