Blondie, I'm not sure I give her enough attention.
She got a neat little mention in the recent "Marine Ornamental Species Aquaculture"
textbook, which was cool to see. She was tiny when I got her, she was bigger than the Gp, around the size of a small yellowtail damsel.

Going for the joc pair and got the gp, the gp are wildly curious and always front and center.


Most people really dislike this fish, and lol, I pretty much agree. Not a really pretty fish and this one is a real pita. I dig the backstory to the fish and the Meneeka/Wolfgang connection. Gem tang hybrid



The cortez and pinktail. Lol, the poor pinktail was caught off guard and cornered by the cortez who took pride in the situation. and really forced the trig into the pvc for more than a few seconds.




Got all 6 flames in this, they are getting big and are still as active as ever. The bandits are content, as is the x trig who was at the other end of the tank.

Love all the pics as usual. Blondie is truly a gorgeous fish.

I'm sad to say I haven't kept up with Karen's breeding lately, is she still having successes?

Thanks Matt. Blondie is really amazing and those pics make me feel guilty for overlooking her probably all too often. Karen is amazing. You saw the Candy she recently churned out?

Hey Derek,

I saw the other post on phone and will reply here as, lol, it is quicker! I think it must be hlle. She came with a lil something under the eye, only on that side. Sometimes I feel it is her physiology but.. It is perplexing, that is for sure.

Hope all is well!

TK

Yeah I was wondering. So it came in with a lil and still hasn't healed up? Strange definitely as I know your food choices and water quality are top notch. Every zebrasoma I've brought in for myself or friends has almost always healed from minimal hlle within a month or so. Especially with good nori feedings

Yes things are great on my end, thank you. My GP is still only about 2.5". She seems to not be growing much especially given the amount I feed. But no worries on my end. It's quite nice how the colors are so strikingly pure at this size.

It might be my fault for not feeding nori constantly all the time, per se, but my rationale is it is in Larry's and Rod's. Lol, having said that, I did get some nori a few weeks back and was surprised at how many fish seemed to crave it and be missing it. The biggest surprise was the lunula, who could not get enough the first few days, the x trig also went crazy for it. My well-water got much harder over the past year, I wonder now what role that may have played? I was stoked to hear that you got a gp, such insanely wonderful fish and so aptly named. Toss up some new pics of her.

Best of luck with all,

Ted

My obsession with Rhinecanthus never dims.



Blondie and a Gp just after going into the dt from the iso boxes. Amazing how tiny the gp were and how big Blondie was!


I wish these came out better, curious what the L16 will do. LOl, It seems I would benefit from a camera that allows me to focus a picture after I have taien it.









Coming or going?

Goodness those GP are fat. What are you feeding these days? Seeing any spawning behavior from them?

Love the shots of the trigger, that blue really stands out.

Is this another Rhinecanthus hybrid? You've got a few now. Very cool!

Lol, they are happy. The go love spir brine, pe mysis, and clams. They also get Larry's and Rod's. The do show some signs but I am pretty sure they need a deeper tank and more room to give me eggs.

Love that lunula too!

Hope all is well!

Ted, what depth tank were the parents in at Karen's?
Also if they did spawn, would you be worried about deformities given the inbreeding?
