    I had a mated pair in my main tank... they were my prize possession... Unfortunately I lost both of them during a tank crash. :bawling:

    Beautiful fish but rare...especially a pair...if you can get one or two I would...people would knock down your dorr for one...(if they have the bucks...they are pricey)

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    Thanks Sunray.. I do plan on getting another pair if I ever get the chance.

    The pair were in my main tank with all the other fish... my plan was to wait until they decided to mate and then take them out and have them in their own tank... unfortunately they never made it that far ... these guys were awesome.. always in the open unlike the less expensive firefish (Nemateleotris magnifica) who seem to like to hide.

    How hard is it to get them to spawn? Has anyone ever reported to have done it before?
