The Flame Cometh

I took the girls to the LFS to give the wife a break and picked up a fish on the bosses list (I've never seen one at this store this why we went there), Her beloved Flame. Here are a few shots of the new member of the family. Some Pics

I will, I think I see the problem he is pecking at every rock looking for algae, probably does the same thing to the coral looking for it as well. He's already been through all the rock work 20 times, busy boy he is.

Okay, I was just wondering, not criticizing. Great looking fish, I can't wait to do salt.

We shall see. It's not like I had a choice, my life would be shear misery if I didn't get the boss her prized fish.

As the little boss says, Close your eyes "1! 2! 3! OK, OPEN DEM SURPRISE!"
My wife was even impressed with him, I do have to say that is one stunning fish. Leave it to the boss for finding him and constantly brow beating me into submission. LOL
