    It`s the Blue Ring Angel.I did some research first and it seems they are one of the easy angels to keep.I am always trying to avoid problems by only choosing livestock which have a good track record.

    Not to worried as I have mostly SPS corals now.It`s most welcome to nip at the polyps and other things they all seem quite boring now.

    Cavin the little guy is so small I there is not much that he is able to bite off at the moment.Hopefully he will behave himself in the future.

    Hi Zookeeper! Congrats with your new addition! All the best for it's survival and with the little fish growing up! I also hope that it does not eat all your coral polyps ;-)

    If things do not work out it`s always a good reason to setup a fish only system.

    You guys can see from the above pic that the polyps only open half way because the angel is always picking on them.
