    This is a picture of my Royal Flasher Wrasse I picked up when we visited Live Aquaria a couple of years ago. He unfortunately did not last long but he was a beauty. Does any one have good luck with long life spans with their Paracheilinus wrasses?

    Our Goldflake angel. Another favorite. Picture doesn't do him justice.

    Thanks, I appreciate it! I know I missed last Friday. I have lost several of my fish lately and I am not happy about it. I think my Kole Tang might be doing it. I have not seen it actually happen but several fish have disappeared. He was a newer addition, a few weeks ago, my first tang and now I wonder what the heck I did. I thought they were supposed to be a fairly decent community fish.

    Sorry to hear youve lost fish. I wouldn't think a like tang would be aggressive to the point of killing other fish as they are pretty docile as a rule. Possibly it introduced disease?

    I saw him attacking the Starry it went first. The other fish were super healthy, a Pylie and a Lubbock disappeared in that order. They ate like pigs and both were not shy about getting their fare share of food. I have seen the Tang be aggressive but not to the point where I thought I would have to pull him out but then the fish started going missing. Eating and swimming normal and then gone.

    First fish are always a favorite of mine! Nice clean new tank and a pair of occelaris is enough to make me happy!

    My wife's favorite. When we went to get our first fish this is what she wanted. I finally convinced her we should start with something cheap and could get it later. It took a year and a half to find another one.

    This week's nominee stays with the angel theme but of the dwarf variety - our potters. Difficult to photograph as he sticks to the shadows as he weaves around the live rock.

    @Maureen@Maureen - Its a beautiful fish, even if its not the one that you ordered. Sorry to hear about your recent fish losses. I hope you have gotten things under control now.

    I think it was the Tang. Nothing else has died. None of the fish that went missing showed any signs of illness. So I guess that is good.
