    So are the new guys in my 55G... Angler is about a baseball size.

    Scopas Tang: (Sorry for the blurry picture it was a reflection off of the front glass)

    Angler: Look real hard for it!

    I also had a True Percula but he died after they were delivered to my house.

    I love the scopas tang.....I tend to like the fish that most people find a little bland. They aren't the brightest colored but what they lack in color, you will find in personality. They do a pretty good job of keeping any macro algae down too=)

    Gexx: I bought it from LiveAquaria.com under "Assorted Angler".

    Thanks to everyone else for the nice comments.

    Daniel072: I LOVE my Scopas, it's personality is very unique and I love the Bi-Color fishes. It's movement is unusual compared to other fishes (except clowns). Very twitchy and darting like.

    I think I will start feeding my Angler with some FW Ghost Shrimp tomorrow.

    Sick looking fish. Good luck!

    Mine wasn't expensive... He has been hiding behind a rock since yesterday, not concerned yet though.
