Is that your display tank he's in? For a fish that expensive, or any fish for that matter, I would have qt'ed it to make sure it's healthy and eating.
Good luck with it.

Some new pics today, he's darkened up. The fish was quarantined for 3 weeks,
Tough to get pics of a black fish with a black backround. Regards, Tim

Well the fish was quarantined by my friend in Hawaii. I know its not exactly how its suppossed to be done but I've been doing this for 20 years and I know the quarantine process my friend goes through with all of his fish from Crosshatches and Bandits to Damsels, they all get a full the full service. I've never had a problem.
Susie Q The fish I think your talking about is holoanthias Borbonius "Jap. Deepwater Blotchy Anthias" They have become available more and more lately.



Here a couple of other pics of the black tang.



The Black is in a 180 right now but i think it will be moved to a 300. Thanks for all the kind words. Regards, Tim
