It's a Conspicillatus angel and most impressive the fact that it's eating well congrats looks like a very healthy specimen :exclaim:

It's eating Brine, Prime Reef and Flake(Believe it or not) now. It's only been in the tank a a few days so I am still treating it with kid gloves, but it is not getting chased by any tank mates and is eating well so I can't complain too much. It is also picking at the rock and one small LPS. It just nips the LPS and moves on like my Imp does from time to time with no real apparent damage done. All three of these fish were added a few days ago and they all ate the same night.

The next thing I would like to see the Conspic eating (already saw the two tangs doing it) is the dried sheet algae.

The Conspic is kind of funny in that it will hide when you walk up, but when you start looking at the tank for a while it will pretty much come right up to the glass, very easy to take pics of.

Nice sarcasm. Just so happens that some people wanted to see pics of these as they are looking into acquiring them themselves and wanted to see the quality from this vendor.

If you are that satisfied with your calendar, I will send you a couple with some nice reef pics and you can send me your corals. Just so happens I'll get the calendar made with pics from my reef.

If you are implying that they are canned shots, and not from my tank, check out my gallery and you will notice that the corals in the background just happen to be the same. If you think I am that adept at photoshop, thanks for the credit, but I am not that technically talented. I'm not sure I even own photoshop. I am, however, flattered by what you may think are my photo skills.

If you really need proof......well forget it, I'll just sit here and watch them myself, I don't need to convince you that badly.

If you are implying that I am nuts to spend this much on a fish, then, yes, I am nuts, but I am glad to have the means to do this for myself as a Christmas gift and not worry about it.

BUT, if you want one for yourself, you can see them the same place I got them (except the Clown Tang, that was local) at www.marineaquatics.net. :)

I just don't know what you are trying to get at with your comments.

Now, is that Auburn, Alabama or Auburn, GA. I spent 23 years of my life in Atlanta and went to GA Tech.

I didnt even notice, LOL. They look like real fish to me. I think the clown tang is just stinking awesome. I would love to have tank big enough for one. I hope you all have a great day. Steve

Well, then, I apologize. I just read too much into the post. I tend to do that sometimes.

I am glad to hear about the 7-11 calendar becuase I am looking for one as well, will have to stop by the 7-11 on the way home. I got a free calander from Chris at Rm, but it got soaked when the Abrotenoides (sp?) poked a hole in the bag.

Sorry again. ;) Open mouth, insert foot.

Little bit of a flashback, needed some more coffee, the 1 year old decided to stay up half the night screaming.

Ed, it is in my reef and I have not seen it nip at anything besides one small SPS. It was a single nip and moved on just like my Imperator does. The fish has only been in the tank a few days so it's too early to tell how it's going to be, but it hasn't even looked at the clams or nipped at SPS at all.

Hi Mike,
Nice fish and pictures. Love the blonde Naso! Mine is one of my favorite fish. They are so peaceful and well behaved. Mine is starting to get some nice streamers after 3 years. I also noticed the Harlequin wrasse in the background. How's it behaving? Do you have cleaner shrimp with it? Any problems with other inverts?

Regards,
Kevin

The Tusk is about three inches long and very shy. I have had it a few months and so far I haven'y really seen it go after anythinf but flake and prime reef/brine. Don't have any shrimp so that wasn't a problem.

Hey Mike,

You happy with dealing with that marine aquatics joint? I am thinking of getting some stuff from them for my own tank - they seem to have some pretty cool stuff but have never dealt with them before.
