A large copperband (Chelmon rostratus) I scooped up. let this fella go since the tank I have at the moment is much to small for him.

Yeh mate it's a tail spot wrasse-Halichoeres melanurus and that damsel,chrysiptera,i would say is a starkii as far as i can see and the two are very similar as juveniles,the starkii is the best natured of all damsels and remains colourful all through its life,well done!!!!!

that leopard blenny looks like a great fish. well done to catch one off them
it will look great in your tank with the other fish you have
blennys blend in well with other fish that are all ready in your tank..
well done .

Thanks guys. I need to get myself a good reference book. Are there any you would recommend? I've just been using websites and the old wild guide to Morton bay to identify stuff or get the scientific names. I had a feeling I was off with that damsel as the yellow didn't extend around on the lower fins. You're right about the colour liquidg the yellow is bright is like a Fluro texta. Gotta say it's my favorite along with the leopard blenny.
