    hey guys! i something somewhat rare (rare in terms that we hardly ever see them imported but they are readily available).

    Midnight Angel or Centropyge Nox. an out standing fish which i have been dreaming about since i saw in last week. it is now eating flake and i will be collecting it later this week!

    i know its not everyones cup of tea.. but for the die hard angel fans, you understand:)

    nox /the midnight angel is a stunning pygmy as it is unusual to get one colour(black) marine fish, very shy and similar to the golden pygmy angel so make sure you have good microfauna life and algae covered rock in your aquarium- rare specimens of this fish have koi colouration breaking up the black. juveniles have a yellow dot on their fins

    If it is eating it is a good buy!

    i dont like it;)

    R300

    See above weirdo :p saw it eat flake. got rather excited for it!

    i have read that some specimens have a bit of yellow, but fortunately he is completely black! i have some caluepra growing in my tank so i do hope he doesn't mind munching them:)

    the LFS also has had a few of them in, but i prefer the nox..

    oh and his name will be Fort:yeahdude:
