This one was supposed to be 20 metres vis but we only got 7 to 10 metres though that didnt stop us from having a great time getting some tank life for ours and other clubbies tanks.

The main ones needing fish this time were for Kits aquarium and Dannys new set up.

There wasnt a lot of life around due to the time of year and a lot of the commercial collectors hit his spot these days but we still made the best of it.

We did see a couple large sail fin tangs,quite a few butterflies,lots of damsels,chromis,the regular stuff and several semicirculatus though to big for our tanks

This is Danny and Kit doing some hunting for tank life while i sat on the bow in the sun having a cuppa and a boiled egg,lol.

And of course one the many caught of the old faithfull Leandrites cyrtorhynchus,no shrimp works harder in your aquarium at cleaning fish than these little beauties,they literaly swim into the open water and start working on the fish as they swim.

Just a video to show how crowded it was,though no real high quality fish at the time.

Just a quick question, the black and white striped fish in that video with the yellow coloured parts on the top of their head... what sort of fish are they? We got some in a collecting trip a while ago and have still not been able to find what they are.

Thanks in advance

They are called Sergeant Majors. They are just a very common damsel. Can be very aggressive though, although i've had one before and it was alright.

They are sargent majors or from the abudefduf family,they can be a bit agresive as they get bigger,still as an adult quite pretty.

young one,more or less

Yep that's the one... many thanks.

We have two in our tank, one really small, the other larger, about the size of an adult clown fish on average. Since getting bigger he is defiantely becoming more aggressive, but still not a problem at all.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated

This is a big part of the forum,not just to promote the club but to share actual experiences and knowledge.

Those varieties of fish are excelent for starting an aquarium,starting out or an easy maintenance aquarium,oh and except for the fuel to get there,they are free,lol.

see you on the pages Mat & Bec. cheers
