Nice! I see liveaquaria lists them as venomous?
Yes, Meiacanthus are known as fang blennies, they all have fangs that can apparently cause a painful bite, but think they only bite when threatened, so they won't randomly sink their teeth into your arm while working in the tank. I'm more concerned about my foxface's poisonous spine during feeding as he brushes against my fingers when I feed. :m27:

Seems I already have more fish than I intended to have after the crash. :y13: Now need to focus on water quality and corals rather and leave most new fish for now:

Well if you've got to many you can always give some to me

Some more random pics from the weekend. Seems the Kamohara has a bent spine, not sure if I got it like this or it happened in qt, but doesn’t seem to bother him. Got a super nice marginatus from @ascheff that is in qt:

Dude this tank is fantastic

What is your current stock list
Basically what was posted earlier. Trying to stay away from any big tangs or other fish that produces a lot of bioload. Still quite a lot of fish, but it is manageable at the moment.

Had to take out one female black leopard wrasse (Macropharyngodon negrosensis) as the male and other female was bullying it. It is in quarantine with the marginatus wrasse, but if anyone wants one, it is free. It is quite skinny from hiding a few days, so needs a tank with healthy pod population to get its strength up again. It was eating pellets and prawn in display before it started being bullied.

I wouldn't mind the leopard wrasse if you don't mind. Willing to pay for it. Been looking for one recently.

Cool, it is yours. Don't have to pay for it, see if you can get it healthy. I'll QT it for another few days until Wednesday.

Perfect, thanks bud. Will whatsapp you to make arrangements for collection later in the week. Its actually just an excuse to come see your tank again only this time slightly more stocked.
