Just a short afternoon to cure my collecting cravings. Pretty poor visibility but i enjoyed myself as always. Unfortunately i couldn't find any scopaz tangs or coral beauties which is what i was hoping for but i picked up these two instead.

Mimic Filefish (Paraluteres prionurus) These guys obviously try to imitate the valentini or saddled puffer. To add to the illusion they even make the sound that puffers do and pretend to blow themselves up!!

Yeah mate no need to ever ask if you wanna use my pics. Are you redoing it at the moment? I noticed a few sections are currently missing that were there before. When I first came to the forum I liked that section the best. There are so many fish that we see and catch that are not found in books such as the wildlife guide to Morton bay and websites such as diving the goldcoast are really hard to navigate and identify species found in the south east.

Yeh mate its getting there.

Just fixing the bad pics,labeling all with our web site name and resizing them all.

I put the other fish section back,last night i think it was.

The amount of work in it is a great deal,but give me a couple of weeks more.

cheers

Yeh it is a little. The clown tang and that wrasse are way too big but everyone seems to be getting along okay. Ive got a month and a half holidays soon so getting a 5x2x2 is on the agenda!! hows your new one coming along? looks like you have some cool ideas cant wait to see it complete. love the fresh water aquascaping by the way always been a fan of it!!! from the very beginning when i got interested in this ive always imagined a similar concept for a marine. cant wait to see what you pull off!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce

Ooo a 5 footer, nice Very Happy , you gonna start keeping corals this time?

Yup, been doing planted tanks for a long time, since I'm not gonna be able to work on the stand this week, I'll be working on the rockworks instead, I'll try to update the journal as I go along, hopefully it'll come out close to what I had in mind.
