That blue and yellow one is actually an angel fish, a Bicolor angel. He was one of my first fish back when I had a 16G nano. I bought him on impulse to find out later they did not have a high survival rate in captivty. I have also proven that theory wrong as well since he's been with me for almost 2 years and is still healthy and seems to be the "ruler" of my tank. CTX I think having my xenia attatch to the glass like that would be cool. I've yet to see it happen.

It won't be cool when it starting blocking half your tank view.. hehehe..

I want to add a angel fish too, but afraid of them nipping on my sps and lps. They tend to do that, as I hear.

I think you got a really healthy system, thats why everything that people say it won't survive, survives in your tank.

This is true but when it does a clean straight edge razor, a couple of zip lock bags and a trip from me can clear that up right away.

Its true what you say about angelfish but every angel has its own personality. Mine still nips but doesn't do it constantly to bother anything too much. Sometimes it will bother that sea pen but when it does the polyps retract and within 5 minutes there back out and the angel has forgot about it.

Luckily the system has been healthy but it hasnt always been like that. A lot of research and lots of money which we all know are a must in this hobby has put my system where it is today
