    pic one looks like a perch family, and the blue strip with black looks like a neon goby

    2nd pic is a surgeon, maybe a
    Thompson's Surgeonfish (Acanthurus thompsoni)
    or bristletooth variant
    hard to tell from pic

    thanks man, but i sit in cape town, also known as the land of the permanent winter.
    I actually miss the collecting more than actually having the fish.
    Keep posting what you find.

    I would say either that or it could be a Acanthurus dussumieri
    because it has a yellow tail as a juvenile, not white like A. blockii...

    But A. dussumieri also has a light blue stripe on it's keel, unlike this specimen.
