    I took these pics in the aquarium in Copenhagen. The old one before it got torn down

    And I just cannot remember these 2 names. They are very similar, just the colour differ. And yes, they are big. Pity I do not have a picture with something for scale to be able to show their size.

    What is their correct name. And I do assume they are not reef safe :(
