    Thanks, Feeding them a mic variety of foods, Including some cut up prawns once sometimes twice a week.

    Thanks, Patiently observing as they are growing. Still struggling to get hold of the other Tangs I want, but LFS said should come again in 2 weeks might have a surprise for me if they come through.

    Thanks! Got hold of 3x juvenile Leleupi, very small still and super quick and luckily still doing alright among all of these. Got them for a really good price as well because of their size as well.

    Hahaha, the clown loaches also have a story of their own, I always had an excuse in the past due to my tank sizes being way to small to keep them and that is what I told her every time she asked. When I got this tank every time we visit the lfs in our area kept on asking why do you not get some of these now, you've got the space for them. Over time they started growing on me and could see how she lit up looking at them when we went back to the lfs store so I gave in and got 3 of them in the end. :D

    The fish she wants other than these is a bit beyond my league, she loves marine setups as well as Freshwater Stingray setups, large oscar setups, planted angel/discuss setups as well.

    Trying to get a small breeding project up and running on the side to help sustain the hobby a bit better and that I can save up towards something I can surprise her with as well. As of late she has shown more interest in the hobby than in the past and would like to keep it that way.
