    Hi Guys my trip to the LFS ended as a huge temptation! I saw two things I immediately fell in love with, the first a Two Barred Rabbitfish (Siganus Virgatus) and the second was a Acanthastrea Echinata, they are similar to the ones in this pics:

    And then they had blue Xenia as well! Decisions, decisions...

    Will try to take pics of the actual lifestock when I go again, or better yet, once when they are in the tank!

    JP, 'll see if I can find my UW housing for my camera. Then you can take nice macro shots of the corals. I'm no good at taking pics.

    Nah, fortunately she's very useful around the tank:razz: I got the Rabbitfish, a Firegoby and asked Wikus to keep the Acanthastrea for me! Will take pics once they are settled in.:thumbup:

    Hi Al what kind of wrasses did they get in? Over here they got two 6 line wrasses in on Friday but both was on order, would've liked one of those! Maybe will order one of those with the next shipment.
