    Hi All

    Thought I'd share this, I've had the powder blue for 4 months now. He's eating pellets and nori and has fattened up nicely....

    It's been a while since I've done anything with my tank, I got a little distracted and next thing a few months have flown past :) Also, I had the PB settling in since Dec last year, so I've tried not to mess around in the fish room to avoid stressing him out.

    I finally got around to doing some diving in Sodwana, I was very impressed with the life down there. Hopefully my PB will get as big as some of the ones I saw there :)

    Probably from all the food these beasts eat... I'm going to be adding chaeto to my sump this weekend hopefully. I've also got to be more strict with my water changes, there just isn't enough time for everything, sigh.

    Awesome:yeahdude: - Your the man:yeahdude:

    After more than a decade in the hobby and six failed attempts at keeping a PB I envy you. This is my deam fish, but I just cannot get myself to risk my entire reef with one of these guys again.

    Everyone has an "Archilles Heel", the PB is mine.

    Keep him healthy and best of luck, in a small way you are wining the battle for me

    Hey, I dissapeared off the planet for a while, only saw these now.

    I've got 4 angels, annularis, emporer, chrysurus and nevarchus. I would love to add more, but I think my tank is at capacity now.
