    LOL Crispin. I don't have vid's or pics - BUT, have personally experienced this 1st hand! Red fang or niger triggers are EXTREMELY aggresive when one swims over their "nests" in the sea, when SCUBA diving.

    I have many of them already come and "attack" my fins while I swam over their nests ;)

    Chika - nah - don't worry about "your baby". I have only experienced in the "big blue sea"..... I too had one of these "babies" - previously - before my cuke decided to go and ride a "pump"......

    I LOVED my little blue baby! It was an AWESOME amazing fish!

    It was the ONLY fish that actually ate out of my hand!

If you know someone plz let Frans know - Maybe Frans's boet going to help us get him - not sure as yet...

    Sorry bud, was hectic today (having nightmares about a tank I am re doing...the one with the nennie mandarinman is keeping). My boet can only get leave 21 - 29 MAY, he has booked tickets already and will help.

    But if we can make a plan earlier cool ! Let me know.

    BTW ...it bites the hand that feeds it :p

    I'm in no hurry mate - I just feel lousy that you have to take care of him for so long - In any case spoke to Lanzo over the weekend - heard he's moving shop so would be best not to send trigger before end of April in any case - will see what plan we can make ...
