    What kind of wrasse is this?

    Saw this wrasse come in at work and is the first time I see this species. Looking at the mouth I'm thinking it's some kind of Anampses or maybe a Halichoeres? Came in as a "œGreen tail wrasse"

    What kind of Tang is this?

    You guys can close this topic now. I’m 99.99% sure it’s a Bariene. It has the same exact markings http://www.reefhotspot.com/store/images/ctaabnggfhgftrh.jpg Based on this image above, it looks exactly the same to me. It has the same orange line by the gills, the orangeish dorsal fins with a...

    What kind of Tang is this?

    After some googling, I really feel like it might be an A. Bariene but my boss says it’s an A. Nigricauda. I’m not entirely sure which it could be, but I have a slight hunch it’s a Bariene.

    What kind of Tang is this?

    Had a Tang come in where I work. It came in as a Chocolate tang but it’s definitely not a Chocolate Tang. Based on its looks I know it’s definitely an Acanthurus of some kind but not entirely sure what species. If possible, along with the ID can someone post some quick stats about them? Such as...

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    He had given them pellets before I arrived. I feel like it is unlikely he choked, but it’s just strange how just randomly died, it’s the only thing I can think of that he may have died. He was literally doing just fine the morning yesterday. Same with the black cap but I can’t say what killed...

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    Doesn’t have to be expensive, as long as it’s something that’s pretty uncommon and not usually seen for sale. I’d prefer not to spend any more than $200 on a fish, especially if it’s one that can be a little challenging to keep. You may suggest other expensive fish, I may be tempted enough just...

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    I know, I would've gotten a small 2" one and then I would've sold it by the time it hit 5". I can't get it now anyway. That ones definitely nice, I've never seen that one. Know of any other suggestions? Doesn't have to be a leopard wrasse, any other small fish works.

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    If I happen to find a healthy potters that's eating well I'll probably get it, but if I see the other first I'll just get that one. Just in case I'll only get one assessor then, if I find one. I really want another tang (specifically a Naso tang), but knowing I already have 4 big fish, I know...

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    I like the look of the M. bipartitus and I really like the Potters wrasse, but if the potters can Be more difficult I think I’d rather start off with the other. I wouldn’t mind paying the money for the potters, just afraid it wouldn’t do too good. I’ll try to order both in at my job, whichever...

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    Yea, I had bought him out of an impulse buy because he was a nice size and was fat, even more so he readily accepted frozen brine so I thought it was a major plus. But now that I see even with that, he's just not active and aggressive enough to swim towards the food first than all the other...

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    Yea, I wanted to add as much fish to my tank is possible without overcrowding or causing much aggression, which is why I didn’t want any more big fish. Depending on the fishes that are out there, I’ll probably just switch out my mandarin and put him in my frag tank.

    Rare, reef safe fish recommendations.

    Hi there, I was wondering what rare or unique fishes are out there that I could add in my current tank. The fish has to be small (4 inches max) but at least 1 inch large or a little bigger. Has to be reefsafe, I don't mind if there's a slight chance if it'll eat shrimp or crabs, as long as it...

    What fish is this?

    Alrighty, what about these? I know ones a goby, it occasionally takes a mouthful of sand. Acts almost like a Bullet goby. The other I'm not entirely convinced if it's a grouper. Has a strange mouth for one but otherwise acts just like a grouper. Sometimes it'll sit down and sometimes it'll...

    What fish is this?

    Is there a general “what *animal name* is this?” Thread here somewhere? There’s more fish I’d like to ask about. A grouper like fish and some sort of goby, I’ll take a picture of them in a moment
