    Notes:
    This little guy was on my dream list of fish to add to my reef from the onset of reefing. I finally got it and was warned about it chomping my soft corals, it however isn't interested in them. As you can see in this pic, it is making a meal of my feather worm which has been in hiding for nearly a week until I coaxed it out tonight just to be picked almost imidiately by this fish and has been picking my open brain to the point where the brain is in a bad shape. It is eating well and in awesome condition.

    Are there any offers to maybe swap for an alternate species or corals? Or simply to buy. Very heart sore to have to remove this fish as it is one of my favorites[​IMG]

    I tell you Chika, it is such a placid and beautiful specimen of this fish - I am gutted, but I can't sacrifice my whole setup for the sakes of 1 fish...

    I can drive down if you want alslam - been wanting a road trip for some time now, I got family down there I don't mind visiting and I wanted to take a trip to the coast - you get the fuel tab for JHB-PMB-JHB and we sorted :thumbup: If you have a bunch of other stuff to come from JHB I will bring it along ;)

    I have never shipped so I have no idea...hence the delivery method was noted as collection.

    Hello Peter,was really interrested in buying the fish.Unfortunately Im not willing to pay complete petrol costs.Rather someone in Gp take it off your hands.At that price,I would rather wait for my LFS to get one.Thank's for the offer.

    If you want it I can look into shipping, I have just never done it, but willing to give it a try if it means he is going to a good home we can make a plan with the details of shipping.
