    Some of my new little inhabitants in my Mixed reef tank
    They cruise around nibbiling all the same little things a mandarin fish does!
    Really a great addition if you have awesome live rock and are willing to feed a bit of live food now and then!:thumbup:

    Just an Update, These little upside down swimming suckers are still doing very well!! picking at the rocks and really going crazy when I put live brine shrimpies in:biggrin:
    Other 2 mates that put them in are having the same luck, only one of theirs got caught first day in a pump!! Otherwise all good!
    Who else has tried these guys????:whistling:

    You catch dem wif da net in da sea.. by da vetchies.. especially Limestone!! But has to be right tide think incoming and they stay a bit off the reef so when you dive keep your eyes out over sand bars ok!!??;)
