    Keeping Orange Spotted Filefish (Oxymonacanthus longirostris)

    No issues with just keeping 1. I would keep them in pairs, so you could do 2 or 4 in 450L. I wouldn’t go over 4, and if you get more than 2, make sure there are lots of hiding spots, caves, arches, etc. because they will chase each other.

    Keeping Orange Spotted Filefish (Oxymonacanthus longirostris)

    Yeah, they will definitely go after the acros. If they are small they could definitely damage or even kill them. Best case would be they stop extending polyps and the osff leave them mostly alone.

    Micromussa or Scolymia…..or?

    Thanks! I’m thinking looks more like bowerbanki than lordhowensis

    Micromussa or Scolymia…..or?

    Anyone able to ID? I got a small rock with 2 similar shaped corals, but different color combos. The red/orange one is superbright and a single head. The purplish one has 5 heads….so likely not scolymia….. Each one is about 1.5”, with the purple a bit larger given the 5 polyps. Do you think...

    MISSION Leopard Blenny

    I’d try some flake food….sometimes they go for something you would never expect. I’d put a sheet of nori in too, maybe some algae wafers if you have them. I would expect they aren’t going to readily eat from the water column….maybe use the Masstick as a method for introducing other foods by...

    MISSION Leopard Blenny

    Good idea. These guys don’t look like they have a specialized mouth or anything like the filefish…so I would try everything. Some brine shrimp cause most fish like it, fish eggs, reef plankton, even pellets and flake. Live black worms and fresh hatched bbs might get them in the mood too. I...

    MISSION Leopard Blenny

    Yeah, it’s no longer available in the US. Maybe not anywhere if it’s truly discontinued. Masstick is a good option.

    Hitchhiker Coral ID

    Hmmm…..could be. My main impression for thinking maybe not, is the corallites seem like maybe too close together. They don’t really have space between them…

    Hitchhiker Coral ID

    Thanks, but I don’t think so, corallites are too small.
