    I like the colour mate, it's a bit different. I never had to feed any of my bubble tips and they grew like mad. Only split once mind which is odd for one from the [MENTION=20021]penzo[/MENTION] linage!

    I had a read up and it is not completely normal for them to split. Usually a shock will cause this or electricity in the water apparently.
    I am happy with it anyways. My tank is looking very bare now :-( but ready for zoa now. Wrasse is still gone so not looking good. Have my eye on a nice fairy wrasse and it is on hold in LFS. Have 100 pound credit in store from coral and frags i brought in :)
    Also got 120 give or take with conversion for my flame angel. Not taking any chances with the new zoa. Does nozzer sell zoa ? i heard he has some nice stock :) I dont mind paying if its rare and looks good :)

    Noel [MENTION=13014]nozzer[/MENTION] had the best collection of zoas I've ever seen. It's ridiculous. Wouldn't like to guess at how many different ones he has. It's pretty much exclusively where all mine have come from. He doesn't take the ***** with pricing either which is rare.

    Don't know if he would send to Norway though. If you come to an arrangement with him I don't mind collecting and posting them for you pal. If needed obvs.

    If I remember rightly Des, when I got my timini wrasse it went straight under the sand for 3 weeks.
    Eventually I was advised to wake it from its slumber, I gave the sand a good raking and out it popped no probs.

    Flashers don't usually go in the sand from what I know. They hide in rock. I have aragonite substrate In my tank so not likely it is under that. Hopes not high

    They are very nice but can be shy from what I found.
