Pink Tail Trigger - OIAB Score

Recommended Posts

Picked up this beautiful pink tail trigger from Ocean in a box this weekend!

 

Such a cool fish, we call him the juggernaut as he is such a beast.

Peaceful so far, gets along with the Sargassum Trigger well besides a skirmish the first night over sleeping quarters.

 

Also picked up an arc-eye hawkfish, also very cool. He looks allot like this:

Awesome, I was just looking at him the other day, very cool fish! Love the see through fins with black outlines. Nice snag

 

That is really cool you noticed that.  The fins are so clear, reminds me of a glass cat in freshwater.

That hawk fish is pretty sick!

 

Thanks Mike, my son spotted him and convinced me to give it a try.  He sits on a giant montipora spongodes and stares me down most of the day.  I call that 'personality' haha

I keep forgetting I have store credit there. Gotta get in there and use it one of these days. Nice looking fish!

 

Thanks Jesse, glad you still have a tank going!

Great looking new fish!  I don't think I have seen either one of them before.

 

Thanks Steve, this is my first time seeing the arc eye hawk also.  Been wanting a pink tail for a long time so this worked out good.

I'm a tad jealous. On another note. What's the chance of me getting a piece of my old lobo?

Ah well, nothing to be jealous of but I do appreciate the compliment.  

 

Your beautiful orange lobo is doing good.  I had a not so good period a while back and lost a few heads but it is recovering nicely.  First frag has your name on it as promised!

Nice! I just picked up a sargassum last week. Been wanting one again since I lost my first about 4 years ago. Are you going to add more triggers? How about the crosshatch? A pair would look sweet.

All I'm wondering is how that fish is in your DT when you just acquired it this last weekend..... :nono: :nono:

 

Looks great though!

Congrats on the sargassum, a cool trigger.  I like their eyes, the top where they are blue.  A crosshatch would be cool, but I am going to lay low on acquisitions for a while.  OIAB did have a beautiful blue cheek also that just came in.

Nice scores!  always wanted a hawk fish!

Thanks PeteRock!  Some guys are having luck with hawkfish that don't have shrimp.  So far so good here...

Regarding the Hawk....well...yeah, glad he's in your tank and not mine! I am an invert hugger.

Wow, apparently triggers can pick up relatively large pieces of live rock, swim them to the top of the tank and drop them on other coral  :doh:  :doh:

 

And once they get it on their mind, they cannot stop thinking about it.
