    Dean - are you talking of "Flame Angels"? Or "African Flameback Angels?

    Can you post a pic of which one you mean?

    You guys with english names for the fish. No wonder.
    Loriculus or loricula, that´s the name. Nothing else.
    If you talk about a sandgoby, which one do you mean? Understand what I´m saying?
    Corals, same thing. Get used to the latin name and things like that won´t happen.

    sorry - meant flame angel. - the bright red one. I see overseas you can pick them up for under $40. (retail).
    So that's quite a markup....
