    Hi reefers

    I received this as "SPECIAL SPECIES FOR YOUR ATTENTION" It is not a bi-color, no "antennae"
    They act like them though, but are more active and colorful. Their fin's form a full circle around their tail when they swim. Gorgeous:w00t:

    Help me ID please!!

    Thanks Sean

    This is the closest I could see. It should be this fish:thumbup: I am 99.9999% convinced, my fish only have more yellow:p

    What would I have done if you did not find it? Perhaps keep them all for myself.;)
