do the triggers behave themselves? How are they with the other fish?
I only have the crosshatch at the moment, sent the goldenback to a bigger tank, as it didn't really fit and looked out of place, will get a female crosshatch soon to pair up with the male. They both behaved themselves, although 2 fire gobies went missing over December holiday, suspect it might have been the porcupine puffer or snake eel, but could also have been the goldenback as it is huge. Before these I had a pair of blue throats (that are now in @ScubaLover22 's tank) for about 3 years without any issues, the female just had a squabble with the regal tang every now and then for some reason.
i love your fish selection, brilliant!
Some more random shots from today:
So difficult to get a pic of this guy:
My inferno nenny that turned green and purple on the left next to a few RBTA’s:
What did you do to the poor puffer to upset him so much. Did you insult his mother or something?
I have no idea, it just blew up like that and deflated a minute later for no apparent reason.
Must be your morning face he saw...
Caught both my mitratus nipping the magnifica. Took mitratus out for now, need to think of a plan on how to get them to leave nenny alone, maybe some clowns hosting might keep them away. A few hours after mitratus were out, the magnifica expanded a lot, like 40cm across, so think their nipping stopped it from expanding completely:
Both skimmers pulling out serious muck, the carbon dosing makes the smell almost unbearable:
Then some new additions, 5 Maldives clowns (Amphiprion nigripes) and a tiny mustard tang (Acanthurus guttatus), excuse the slight cyano in background. The clowns instantaneously started hosting in the magnifica when I put them in:
Thats awesome. People struggle on a daily basis to get clowns to host and these guys go straight in. Well i guess with such a big nennie they cant resist.
I also think these might be wild caught clowns, so might have stronger instincts than captive bred.
This is a stunning pic:
Thanks, need to get nicer ones today, need to try and get all 5 in one pic.
That is worse than herding cats.
I tried taking pics with my three tangs in the same shot and it just doesn't work for me
Hope you have better luck!
Tank and fish look amazing as usual...such an awesome pic of the puffer and the clowns in the anemone!!
No fair, you had help from the nennie
