    Okay, I get it. I just backed out of the thread and saw the title. I didn't change the title to that! I swear!

    I'm not sure about the leaf thread reference though.

    On the last page of the Leaf fish thread, you described how the leaf fish looses it's coloration and you provided pictures.

    Cause unknown, but there must be some theories ie: diet ( what specifically ).

    Ohhhhh..... camouflage. Unless your tank is bright red, he's not stayin' that colour. Their default colour is a variation of cream/yellow. I would (now) never pay big bucks for a bright coloured one... because they simply won't stay that colour from my experience. I look for patterns/markings and those little filaments when looking for an interesting specimen.

    I changed the title
    and moved it to fish of the month

    Ill change it again to January

    IMHO the write up , the detail, the videos should be enough to achieve the 3 reef contributor badge for you

    not just for this article , but for a number of your recent contributions, which have been informative and very interesting
