    Fish Pics!!

    Maybe I'm blind but couldn't find a just fish thread. SO let's see them everyone.

    Here's mine. New guy, had him about a week now and instantly became my favorite (and costliest) fish. Currently in his temp home (frag tank). Eats like a big and comes right to the top when i come over.

    ACHILLES TANG

    When all else fails, kick it, smack it then throw it out the wndow and start over

    Oh man.. you got one! I'm jealous. I'm anxious to see how he does. He's beautiful. Here are my two favorites.. I'm scared of moving them 'cuz I love them so much. Melvin the fat Sailfin and Wilbur the fat pig trigger.

    Nice names. I'd like a pink tail but after my last 2 triggers decided to go after my clams and my fromia starfish. Prolly not putting another one in this reef lol.

    I've had the achilles for a week now and he's doing great. beautiful blue coloring mixed in his black.

    Tell your mom i said hope she gets better soon

    Those are all some nice looking fish, except for waldo. Couldn't see him on the mobile version, had to go big screen.

    I love that you guys are having luck with the Achilles. Did you both get it from the same supplier? I want one.. but so afraid of getting one that won't eat. But maybe there's a supplier out there with a decent chance it seems. Beautiful fishes.

    I believe they were both from josh (Kalani corals) and at good prices... I have gotten a powder blue and a Mel wrasse from him that also came in eating and happy

    It's not a Moorish ideal she's a Heniochus diphreutes and is reef safe not 2 be confused with a Heniochus acuminate which is not and looks almost exactly a like .

    That's interesting. I wanted but had ruled out a moorish idol, and still have. Maybe that type is the answer. Josh, if you see that kind pop up on your list, let me know for sure.

    Once I get moved and the new tank settled I may have to hit him up.. I've wanted an achilles.. but I've read so much about them not eating and kicking the bucket not long after.. which for the price is too much of a gamble. But if these two do good.. I know I'll be buggin' Bush for updates, then I might give it a go. And that copperband you have, Larry, has got some photo charisma. So cute.

    I definitely would recommend it... I have to attribute a lot of my good stuff, corals and fish alike, to josh at Kalani... He's always been good to do business with and has definitely worked with me a few times schedule-wise. Stand up guy for aure
