Bought two today! super excited to see if I can get them to live. There's very little info on them out there and most people are not successful. However, I watched them eat pellets before I bought them so I think I have a shot.

So pretty under the white lights. I need to get a picture tonight..

Theyre white with yellow on the belly

They apparently like montipora digitata :\

oh well, I'm going to take them out and see if I can train them on pellets, then re-introduce them.

Beautiful fish, its a shame. My copperband decided he not only liked the taste of snails which I was fine with, but all lps. Needless to say I had to take him to an LFS last weekend.
