    Hi Guys I'm hoping you can help ID this little Guy. Caught him Yesterday at port edward, sitting in Quarantine at the moment. I've been looking at thousands of pics online but can't seem to find a match. thank you.

    They do fine if you quarantine well.

    Thanks for all the quick replies. Good to know what he is so I can care for him properly. I will make sure he is healthy in the Quarantine tank before adding to my setup so all should go well... with a bit of luck of course.

    You will probably keep him in the quarantine for a few weeks?

    Yes I will be keeping him in the quarantine for a while still, I don't want to take any chances.
