    I now own my pièce de résistance! A fish I have been waiting a very long time to get my hands on! Something I have dreamed of and drooled over. I absolutely adore the Roaps family of butterflies and while Tinkers and Mitratus are a little out of my budget range, this gorgeous guy was not! @Deerpark Aquarium is the bestest of the best!

    May I introduce to you, Burger, the chaetodon burgessi or Burgess Butterflyfish :inlove:

    Me too!!!! I'm seriously considering them and to house them in the sump :)

    haha he's got great personality and isn't shy at all! Like a hoover when the mysis goes in too :D Still doesn't quite have the hang of pellets though lol I'm just totally in love!
