    I am trying to find out what the prices are on these fish.

    And i think that the juveniles are the neon "ravers" of the ocean...hehe

    Common Name
    Semicircle angelfish
    Scientific Name
    Pomacanthus semicirculatus
    Distribution
    Indo-West Pacific: Red Sea and East Africa to Samoa, north to southern Japan, south to Western Australia and New South Wales, including Lord Howe Island
    Max Size
    40.0 cm SL (male/unsexed)

    Juveniles inhabit shallow protected areas, while adults prefer coastal reefs with heavy coral growth providing ample hiding places. Generally solitary or in pairs. Feeds on sponges, tunicates, and algae. The young are excellent aquarium fish and suitable for a community tank.

    Just be careful of the difference between the Semi Circle and the "Old Woman". Here is a couple of pics of the 02 different ones, the latter very common in our waters. I had one in the tank, but they tend to be aggressive towards other fish.

    DeeJayCee - TinusB was yanking your chain - making a joke. It is indeed a lawnmower blennie. Not a XLS blennie ;)

    And you SHOULD be able to keep the fish 100% fine in a new container - ie. those that you get from Plastics 4 Africa or Plastic World. A plastic container that is deep enough to hold enough water - preferably black, that the fish do not get a fright (they will be lulled in a black container - less stress).....Just put an air-pump with an air-stone into the container....

    This should not be for longer than a few hours, right?
    As long as the water temp does not drop (if you scared of the water dropping/increasing - please place a heater in, and a fan over the container for this time)....
