    After QTing this fish for 4 weeks and meticulously training it to eat frozen food, it got into my display last week

    He only lightly pics on SPS, but doesn't do damage. He's going to town on the acans though. URG! I stepped up feeding three times a day, and that seems to help. Hopefully I can get him off attacking Acans, but this is such a beautiful fish.

    Love these guys. Got to see some in the wild when I was diving in okinawa awhile back. Scott Chase had one in his 400g for quite awhile too. Just picked at the acro colonies but never really bothered them

    Well I can't get him to stop picking at ACANS. Doesn't bother other LPS, or even SPS for that matter but sure loves to attack acans. He's in my QT setup until I figure out what to do with him.

    I wanted one of these pretty fish so badly but don't want to take the gamble on one. I've seen them at murmans reef a few times. Such pretty colors.
