    Looking good, you have some really nice healthy looking fish.

    Are you going to populate the reef with corals or is this a FO system with LR ?

    I think its a cream angel, the singapore is sometimes called a cream angel, but the Cream angel is also called the Cream angel where its maing name is cream. They vary slightly visually though.

    Awesome fish you have there toppdogg, precious little non-reefer you have there, have propagated well:thumbup:
