Mekaeel, if you happen to catch a bay when diving, please give me a shout - as i am desperate!!!
regarding the one that you bought, i have a few questions:
Where did you get him and for how much?
Was he good Quality?
And is he in your reef tank?

The reason i ask these questions is because it is so difficult to find a good quality specimen at a good price in CT, they are normally very badly shipped and often die soon after!!!probably from cyanide, and come at a hefty price!
so local would be lekker!

In finny's last shipment they got an emporer in that was about 6 or 7 cm long, still had the blue and white colouring with the spots on the back fin, so maybe they'll get more of the same in this week

I have one of the most stunning specimans.
He has been with me for Eight years,about 30cm long and full adult colour.
I purchased him as a full juv and watched the colour change....awesome fish!
