my pink spot did same thing when i put it in my spare tank whilst waiting for new tank. I came down in the morning it was on the carpet jet black in color. I got the net to pick him off the floor to dispose of him/her... it moved so i left it in the net it slowly started to breathe it came round and now its in my new tank carrying on as nothing had happened to it. Its the boss of the tank and defends its home against any fish whether its a tang or my blue thorat trigger.

I have a mandarinefish ever since I started my aquarium, and it is one of my favorite fishes. The mandarine fish is really easy to keep, is quiet and fast and you can find it one day in one place and the next day in the opposite place. It is great.
If you have any doubt, do not think twice and contact me at

Lion fish are the coolest fish you will ever own. The small ones are not as active and do not move very much.

Pink spot goby is superb easy to keep fish. Watch out mine unfortunately jumped out of the tank overnight through a very narrow slot in tank and killed itself.

Very pleased to say that i captured a specimen of this butterfly.
location : Durban, North Pier, South Africa.
Date of capture : 31st August 2003.
Size : approx 6cm in length.
Method of capture : Snorkel,mask and hand held net. Regulations here do not allow for capture of fish with scuba gear. ( licence is required to capture and keep local marine specimens )

comment : Local name as per Smiths Fishes is a Gorgeous Gussy. I put the fish into my main display tank shortly after arriving home from the dive, within two hours the fish was pecking at the Tetra-bits i had put in the tank.
The following morning the fish was eating a bit of the Tetra-bits, six days later he has made his presence in the tank well known to the other occupants and fights vigorously
for food.

My blue face angel does very well. the secret to keeping
one is to watch it at the pet store for a week or two.
If it keeps its color after 2 weeks, its usually ok. I
keep a emperor, blue face, and yellow bar together, and
the blue face is my favorite.

I had intended my blue damsel just as a starter fish , but as time progressed I became fond of the little starter fish. I do not have a large tank , so adding another fish is not an option. I am not sure whether to keep the damsel or the get another fish. Any advise would be helpful.

I am just getting back into saltwater fishkeeping after about 12 years. I now live in Guam and have been able to see many of the fish I used to own in their natural environment, including this guy! The flamehawk was my favorite fish when fishkeeping. Like any fish, pay a lot of attention to the individual when purchasing. My flame hawk had a great personality and was not shy at all. He would track your movements as you walked around the room, and if you tapped your finger in a corner of the tank, he would come down to investigate. This outwardness was noticeable at the store, so choose carefully!
