    Great pics there sir...love the fuzzy, but then i'm biased as have grown one on from 2cm over the last few months here.
    Keep an eye on him as he grows though as the cleaner shrimp and any smaller tank mates may soon be on his menu,lol...
    Stunning tang there too... :))) :)))

    I made sure it was eating before I took it home. :)

    My Tang is so greedy that I have had to feed it Tetra Prima in advance of the frozen or he'd eat all the frozen. Now, all the fish love the Tetra Prima as well, even the Fuzzy and the Cleaner Wrasse....................

    :)

    Looking good Rick :))) Are you going to keep any corals in there in the future or just keep a fish only system ?

    I'd like to keep some corals but am unsure of where to start................ perhaps I need some frags to get going. But the Majarna anenomes will present a problem, or so I'm led to believe.........................

    Mo's do pose a problem and they will get alot worse if they are not tackled sooner rather than later . I would keep a eye on the toby with corals too as I'm sure he would love to munch on some sps or nice polyps :-:eek:

    There are two of them at the top of the tank half in and half out of the water!

    I took the particularly bad photo with my camera phone.

    I don't have access to photobucket or equivalent ATM.

    Try this link perhaps?
