    he would be if he's new. what other fish do you have? Nobody stressing him? You shouldnt really buy something without actually knowing what it is:whistling: What did they LFS say about it? What it is etc?

    ok, so you bought it anyway? i'm not upbraiding you. Would just like to instill a 'know what your getting into' thing. Too many fish and corals are bought without knowing what they are. If there is doubt you should always check first. Its better you and your potential buys..:thumbup:
