    Got a tiny Anampses caeruleopunctatus, Chaetodon blackburnii and a Chaetodon dolosus (my first) today. Saw a few very small goldies and a few Acanthurus blochii, didn't bother to catch.

    Yeah, lot of leaf wrasse around. Saw 5-6.

    Blackburnii is getting QT'd with every medication known to man and going into a disease free tank. If it wants to die that badly at least it won't take everything else with it! :p

    North Pier...wasn't much on VP last week. Still early days though...the common butterflies and angels haven't arrived yet. Few tiny surgeons about, but just dussumieris and blochiis at this stage.

    I caught a pair of coral shrimps this morning, for my garage tank.
