    Alright, I've decided that my African flameback angel has gotta go. He's doing too much damage to some of my acroporas for me to be able to overlook. He's ~2" healthy and eating frozen mysis and cyclops and such very well. He eats small NLS pellets too. He hasn't touched my zoas, softies, or LPS at all as far as I can tell. It'll probably take me a couple days to make time to pull the tank apart and catch him.

    While I've got the tank apart, I'm going to pull out my yellow tilefish, about 4.5" long, fat and happy, eats nearly anything. He's a bit of a bully to shy cylindrical fish that spend time on the bottom half of the tank (leopard wrasses, firefish) but any fish that will fight back even a tiny bit, he backs right back down. Beautiful brilliant yellow, very fun to watch. Looks just like this: http://liveaquaria.com/diversden/ItemDisplay.cfm?c=2733+3&ddid=91496

    Also putting out feelers for homes for the following fish, all of them very fat and healthy and eating everything:
    - Pair of pink skunk clownfish, ~2.5" and 2", anemone trained.
    - 3.5" scopas tang
    - 2" tuxedo damsel (NOT a 3-stripe) these guys stay small and not especially agressive. In fact they need a fairly peaceful tank to thrive.

    Flameback (he's african, not brazillian) for $30? Open to trades and offers. Mostly I want to make sure these fish go to good homes.

    That is an incredible shot of a Scopas :)

    Question on the tile, they're billed as a big time jumper, have you had this issue or is this one not so prone to it? I know someone that would probably take it but his tank is an open top with no screen ATM>

    A lot of the "common wisdom" about tilefish or dartfish does not apply to yellow tilefish. Rather than being skittish and prone to wasting away and jumping out, they're bold, tough as nails, eat well, etc. Also they tend to flee DOWN to a hidey hole on the rare occasion that something spooks them.

    Buuut with a rimless open topped tank, eventually you're gonna wind up with tragedy, and we get enough of that even when we're being careful imo :(

    Nice flameback, is he reef safe? Do you have corals or clams in your tank? Does he nip? I'm interested, where are you located, I'm in San Jose.
