    Went to get some water from at the Broadwater with @somethingfishy76 during the week and decided to drop into Neilsen's on the way back just for a look. Minus a few dollars later we ended up with me getting a Lipstick Tang I've been wanting for a while and Gerhard getting an absolutely amazing Purple Tang. We both also picked up a small Cleaner Wrasse each, which we both agree ended up being a brilliant decision. The Wrasses immediately went around cleaning and calming each fish and tucked into the nori.
    After a decent acclimation (yeah I know, no quarantine time) the Lipstick seemed pretty happy in her new quarters. The Yellow Tang wasn't all that impressed and gave her a bit of a hard time, but nothing serious at all, plus the Lipstick couldn't give a shit.
    Within 24hrs everyone was happy and cruising around beautifully.
    Both our fish were in excellent condition, fat and healthy. I got my Yellow Tang and Flame Hawkfish from Neilsens also and they have been great healthy additions.

    They really are a beautiful fish - so gentle and peaceful
