    Bump and hint, think Blue Fish with Red & White coral ie: Acan or Gorgonian or Blue Tort and Red Planet Acro's with their white tips.... or maybe Blue Tubbs mixed with Magicians Paly's... even a little Fireworks like

    Cheers, Todd

    All I could get was this of my blue tang and candy canes/red shrooms. I kept getting photo-bombed by the Coral Beauty and the blenny...

    Thanks guys for help getting this thread going here, Jozee try feeding your Acan with mysis then I bet you'll get some tighter shots of the two. Thomas great addition with the CBS, even have a large blue chested male in my 125g that I caught in Hawaii. See if you can get a front facing close-up showing off the blue chest. The antennae will also look like Rocket arcs from this point of view.


    Cheers, Todd

    Thank you, he is a charicter and fun to watch. He is extreamly hard to get a picture of but I will try. He loves to challenge anything, but when it dosen't run in terror he bravely runs away and hides in a rock. Since all the fish know this trick and the coral has yet to be afraid he spends most of the day hidden He even trys to challenge the rocks

    All right! I bribed Napoleon (my coral banded shrimp) to come out and play - I actually got a great shot of him cleaning off his whisker.

    Great pic of the coral banded. How did you get him to come out. Mine is such a scardy cat. He will come out and threaten just about anything, but when it dosen't run in terror he does.

    Mine is a shrimp witha 'tude, hence the name... He is absolutely fearless and profiles on anything in the tank if it gets close ~

    I fed the anemones, so I saved a piece of silverside for him and he came right out for it. It took some coaxing but he followed the tongs to the front of the tank.
