    Oh boy, oh boy, do I have an update for you guys!! :D lol after I got that list of goodies that were coming in, they came in but while they tried to steal the show, as per usual Christian and the guys at Sustainable Reefs made sure that was not the case!! Holy balls was there an overload of goodies!!

    Just check out this bloody sps tank the next morning from the shipment!

    There was just soooo much to choose from but because I was there on fish business I only stole two bits, one is a very interesting piece that has some really delicate growth that I can't wait to see what it does and well.... then there's this bit....

    The real winners for me though was finally getting myself the most gorgeous c. isoceles. I'm just ecstatic about him!

    And I was finally FINALLY able to sort out and pick up my cherry magma wrasse!!

    Both the newbies went in and were eating pellets and live brine with gusto straight away! I have to say I'm over the moon! Here's a quick shotty video of the tank just before a clean and water change so please excuse the mess!


    And lets finish off with an FTS :)

    WOW Dom. When your new wrasse dont disappear into your sandbed for 3 months then you're doing something right.

    They're acting like they've always been in the tank :) It helps that there's absolutely no aggression from the other wrasse so they were in, settled and eating after about 10mins lol

    Hopefully as I increase the range of food I feed, they'll all get better and better!

    hahaha they'd have to be disco goldfish by now? :p

    Yeah it blew my mind, I think Mark was going to make me take it anyway haha but when I saw it and instantly said put it aside he just laughed and said that was happening anyway :p

    Hope it looks as nice as the one you have.

    haha you should be very impatient! If yours is a male as well then you'll be in luck with colours! lol the females are a little less colourful but that's most wrasse and they turn male eventually lol
    I get looked after lol I didn't order it but was sent pictures and hints when it was ordered from the supplier :p

    Good to know, seeing as I had a standing order at Deer Park for a male isosceles. Clearly they don't want my business.

    Please don't think that's the case at all. The guys have known I've wanted one for years now and I speak to them on a regular basis about what we have access too. You're not the only one that has wanted one too , there's about 3 or 4 others I know of that were asking about them. I'm also at Deer Park once a week and probably annoy them ever second day so they really do know exactly what I'm chasing.

    What I'm saying is that while I specifically didn't ask for it, it's been a long standing ask from me for one. You don't have all time favourites without your local store knowing about it :) Please don't feel like I'm queue jumping or getting special treatment or that you're any less valued than anyone else that visits the store.

    Who's going to get upset for me buying another wrasse today? :p this gorgeous Katherine's fairy wrasse is another that I've wanted for a while!
    20170902_132025.jpg

    I was tempted by the flame wrasse that were at Deer Park but same complex as the magma so no go :) gorgeous transitioning sub-male and female :D

    Some very tempting corals though!
