    lol.... cool, you will dig there mating dance!

    The female doesn't have the long bone at the point of the dorsal fin, that's how i tell them apart. Just be careful the juveniles also don't have them so some LFS may sell you a male which hasn't developed his spine on his dorsal yet and then they will fight and kill each other.

    @Bradwin hey bud, not much done. Last edition was a pistol shrimp and yellow watchman Goby.
    Sold my sailfin as he was getting to big for the tank. Lost my jumping bean angel,. No idea why. Other than that everything else is doing well.

    I do want to add anothrler fish but I haven't found anything I like that will suit my tank.

    Heres a few pics. I don't know what nennie that is. Was sold to me as a gbta. Looks more like a condi. It's awsome nonetheless.

    Tanks looking clean - stunning man. selling off livestock affects me badly. I miss them always. I have to think long and hard before I let me fish or coral go.
