    Most of them are jumpers Mekaeel, but obviously every fish is an individual, so maybe you can be lucky and not get a bungee hawk.

    They do sometimes eat shrimps, so just keep an eye on that Tom.

    The flame`s eye is still slightly swollen I think there might be scar tissue behind it and it will never come down, anyway it is as round as a ball :) .Can someone please help identify the coral I think it is a singularia maar ek wietie! so lekker nie.

    I think the common name is a Colt Coral, a type of sinularia leather

    It is a skinny Sinularia, some people call them Finger leathers.

    Its not a Colt. Colt is the common name for Cladiella and sometimes Alcyonium, they're both much fluffier.

    Oh Tom I just saw now, I sorry your little chap dissappeared.
