And a couple of the younger N. brichardi fry;
Like your brichardi looks like n. Pulcher from your picks, princess of the lake lovely fish I have one any more and I would have trouble in my tank, would love a colony though fry look cool great job!

1 taiwan reef hap
1 red peacock (he's not red yet)
Nice tank! But just for the record... You have a rainbow shark... Not a red tail. Red tails only have red tails rainbows have the red fins along with red tails.
