    Meet Chloe

    Anyone who knows me knows how fond I was of Zeke, the big copperband butterfly I lost to huricane Juan. I've been really trying hard to find another one and finally did on Saturday. Chloe is an Australian copperband from SeaCare. She's about 2.5" maybe a little more but under 3". She's not long from the ocean and had a hard time understanding the concept of glass on her first day (lots of nose bumping). She's still very shy but has settled down nicely today. I'm keeping her in the 20g quarantine tank for now. She's small but she's a real beauty, much more coppery than Zeke was with more distinct markings.

    Awsome looking fish! I just picked up a MULTICOLORED WRASSE my self and seen the most gorgeous POWDERBLUE!
    can't wait to finish my big tank as I love shopping for fish. I love corals but have a addiction to fish.

    She was just terrified of me when I first got her. She would hide any time I was near the tank so I couldn't really tell for sure if she was eating or not. She's getting more and more brave now and about a half an hour ago I actually saw her eat at least one piece of mysis.

    I put some more live rocks from my refugiums in her tank and she's really having a lot of fun examining them. I'm hoping that if she doesn't eat from the water column she will eat the food off the rocks at least.

    I also noticed a little bit of white stuff on her tail. Too soon to panic but I'm glad she's in quarantine now. I'm not moving her to the reef until she's really well settled and eating eagerly. She's so small, she doesn't need to deal with being the new fish in the tank for a while yet. Heck, I have aiptasia bigger than her!

    It was a power outage after the hurricane that was the end of Zeke as well as most of my other fish. It was devastating but the tank is bouncing back well and I've restocked. I have a big new generator on it's way from NB, should be in by the end of the week. I am NOT going through that again.

    Here's a pic of Zeke. He was the most wonderful fish. I guess he was about 6" when he died.


    This is Zeke giving Lillith (also RIP ) the spikes after she came up behind him and spooked him.
