    and there I was thinking you had lipstick on your tank.

    i am not sure of prices as i am not in SA anymore, but is it a blond nasso or a black, the blond nasso which has a golden dorsal fin in slightly more expensive as I recall. what size is the fish in cm?

    I bought one for R499 form an LFS 3 days ago (not a sponsor). He's about 180mm. I have him in qt with some issues as per this thread.

    Naso & Pajama surgeon - Fish

    Gonna try to post some pics if he (i.e. the naso) will let me take one, since he is extremely nervous :( .

    I think you should ask if you tank is big enough for a lipstick or naso tang - they grow to a very large size - upto 500mm so a tank over 2m is the bare minimum.

    I think it is directed at Fleur, as it looks like he has a 1,2m tank ;)
