    1st pic in post no 12 is called a coral damoiselle (Neopomacentrus nemurus)- they beautiful and much better looking in a shoal- I originally got them from @viper357 and had them for a long time

    2nd pic looks more like the anthias species, not sure

    Horrible little things. Will kill shrimp the same size as themselves and shred most new fish added to the tank.
