    Have been looking for a while as very few LFS have them and they do look great. I paid £58 for the 3 pieces but the rainbow on it's own would have been £25.

    Done ok.

    The laser lemon has 8 heads and seen on eBay being offered at £20+ for 5 and seems to be a really nice zoa too.

    If you are after acans and have patience to watch them grow from 1 head into a colony you can get them fairly cheap online.

    I bought a couple of single head acans and now have at least 4 to 5 baby heads growing. Always good to see a frag grow.

    Bit of a shock today, my first carpet surfer.

    Walked into the dining room this morning to find my peacock wrasse on the floor in front of the tank, no idea how long he had been there.

    Put him in the tank but was motionless and a couple of cleaner shrimps started on him. So picked him up from bottom of tank and started to move him backwards around the tank to get some water through the gills and popped him into a bag of water so that he wouldn't be bother.

    10 mins later and his gills were moving so put him back in tank and he buried himself into sand.

    Anyway this evening, he was feeding on some mysis so looks like a close escape but will see how it goes over the next day or 2.

    Phew

    Very lucky, thought he was a gonna for sure. He seems ok now and swimming around as usual. Peacock wrasse are one of my favourite fish as their colours are different and bright and they are good tank mates too.
