    hi barbs:)
    might be best to keep all photos in one thread else one gets lots with too many threads:)

    tank looks great, any idea which Tang you have just above the orange shoulder tang?

    looking at those mushrooms on the right, i thought at first glance you have lots, but looking again i think you might have blue sponge which can be a problem if left un mannaged. can you get a better pic for us? I am talking about the stuff between the pincushion corrals

    Yip its a Siganus tetrazonus, also known as an Indo Coral Rabbitfish. I had one in the Pearls tank for about a year before it was viciously attacked and killed by a large bristletooth tang.

    so its fine to keep different rabbit fish together, that foxface and the Indo will conhabit fine together it would seem?

    Mmmm - I am a little confused... yep, have quite a bit of that 'blue stuff' but it covers the rocks, which there are lots of.. a little of it died off recently (turned skeletal), which suited me fine coz like u say, it does spread a bit. Just got to keep making a bit more space for those pincushion thingies :)
