    Thanks man. Yeah it has come to the point where i can really enjoy the tank.

    Its a standard 4 foot. Corner overflow. TS3 skimmer, smallish DSB - (this would be a upgrade if i ever do)
    Lighting 1 x 10 000k white and 2 x Blue T5's

    Yeah i was pretty scared they would fight quite bad as i had heard the purples can be pretty bad, but he came in as the smallest so they sorted each other out pretty quick. also i work from home so i always make sure they have enough Nori to graze on and that seems to help.

    yes, in my book they call it a yellow tail spotted wrasse. very cool little guy - very hard to get a decent picture of.

    Thanks for the great feedback guys - much appreciated!!!
