colouring is fantastic--are you adding anything for colouration
Nothing special really.

I alternate between a garlic additive and Reef Plus from Seachem. Furtunatelly all of my fish have been healthy and their coloring is fantastic.

You should see my Pinstripe Wrasse!

ah pinstripe--In the great white north it is called a elegant wrassse--but what do we know
I had one as beautiful as that and bigger--for one year--one day it was absent at the dinner table and I never saw it again.
It didn't jump--I am sure it buried itself under the substrated like it prefered to do and got caught
funny I rescued a cardinal like that a month ago and just introduced it back from qt--it is a male also

I guess if you want to call it a trick was when it was very small I put it where it is and let it lean back slightly against the rocks behind it. As a result it is attached to 4 different rocks and has grown pretty much straight up.

Ugly Tang

I have a 29g
Yellow Tang-Sunny
Had for about 4 years
I'm not posting a photo because it is very ugly. The spaz likes to go through swim throughs and has mangled his dorsal fin which is now all knarly. His antics have also caused him to wear away some of the scales above his gills. He started this shortly after we bought him. At first I thought it was Lateral Line Disease, but I understand that a fish would succumb to that disease rather quickly and he has been like this for 4 years. Never-the-less he is our mangles spaz!

Not to be the tang police again but i would defiitely move that tang to a larger tank. He may have worn away scales due to scratching on rocks etc because of ich or something. JMO
