Is that at Amwell Aquatics?

Ahhh gutted such an interesting looking fish, I just read up on them but not for my reef tank with the fish, corals, and inverts.

Had mine for a month, no Aiptasia in the tank and my Corals and CuC seem mostly untouched (I do have a mysterious tunnel and missing Cerith snails but think that is another issue) he's not small, perhaps 1.5"-2" got him from Maidenhead Aquatics (i know, i know)

Really interesting fish to observe as well, likes to hide in amongst gorgonians and macro algae

No issues at all, small squabbles with the Blenny over Nori sheets, but that tailspot is a "Richard" anyway
He has a really cool display (I know its a he from the frills on his horn ;)
Thinking of picking up another and trying to pair them off

Asian Supermarkets, so much cheaper than LFS or online usually get 25 or so sheets for £1.50. Look for ROASTED or DRIED and UNFLAVOURED Sushi Nori (check ingrediants for added oils) I prefer to feed "Wakame" a type of sea lettuce, holds together in the tank better than Nori and my fish love it

Thanks:
