    Here are some pictures of TT, a Balistoides iridescens. I'll be documenting the changes that it goes through towards adulthood.
    It's not for the average home aquarium, as it requires a 2500l tank min. This fish will be donated to the local aquarium when it becomes too large, unless I've built a big enough one myself by then.

    The day after capture:

    A couple of days after:

    10 days later, and feeding well on hake and calamari.

    Haha... yup, but his tank mates have eyes at the back of their heads. He's a foul tempered individual, but at least he's not very agile, so his torpedo charges are about as accurate as the weather forecast at this time of the year.
    Definitely!

    You can see his moustache starting to develop in the last pic.
