    I found the best time of night to photograph the male, is dusk.

    This is around the time he starts strutting and displaying to the female.

    If you cannot get piccies, how about a video, I sit on the floor in front of the tank and wait for them to appear. Although mine are on view most of the time.

    I dont think i have anything to take a video with tbh tina,

    This little guy is giving me a proper headache (juv,clown wrasse)
    as soon as i have fed my scolys he takes the food straight away
    i had 1 once before which was 6-7" long and was a model citezen
    never touched a thing,and i had the stupid notion that this guy would be the same,but wouldnt you know it turned out to be a right pita
    still only got myself to blame should know better tbh
    heres a pic

    The symphyllia is a beauty,under leds its blue and green
    which really stands out,its my centrepiece and will need something special to come along to make me change that.

    Hi scott these goby's are great,i would recommended them to anyone
    they get on with every other fish no probs at all
    and look stunning to boot,i've had these in with rainfords before there almost identical twin, without
    any trouble they have a slightly different colour pattern but stunning all the same

    That is really nice.

    Been looking at them for a while now.

    Would get lynched if I spent that on one coral atm.

    Will put that on a list for things to get later, But I WANT one :-(
