 None  of  the  above  are  sgt  majors.  
 
 The  volitans  looks  very  young.  Once  the  wimple  begins  eating  well,  no  surprise,  WILL  nip  its  fins.  Take  care.

 Man!  your  Lion's  are  a  treat!  great  pix  too!  (PS:  what  camera  do  u  use?)
 
 i  have  often  been  confused  between  the  whimple  and  the  moorish  idol...  can  da  experts  throw  some  light  on  this  please?
 
 count  me  in  on  the  Trigger  Fanatic  Club  Very Happy  i  had  read  that  they  should  be  kept  alone  with  no  other  fisn  nor  snails,  crabs  or  even  anaemones  and  then  later  was  told  by  Shankar  too!  must  be  right  then,  just  to  keep  them  in  a  large  specimen  tank.  I  keep  Puffers  (Ceylon  Puffers)  in  a  brackish  specimen  setup)
 
 My  favourite  trigger  is  the  clown  trigger!  I  havent  added  any  fish  yet  in  my  4'  marine  yet,  except  for  the  cycling  mollies.  my  time,  though  is  soming  close,  another  couple  of  weeks,  and  i  shall  have  my  desired  fish,  I'm  still  unable  to  decide  whether  to  keep  just  a  single  clown  trigger  in  the  whole  tank  or  a  community  minus  my  desired  trigger  Sad
 
 All  said  and  done  Lance,  your  tank  looks  great!  just  just  get  greedy  and  rush  things,  because  it  would  then  make  your  already  thin  wallet,    umm,  disappear  Wink
 
 keep  those  pics  coming!

 hi
 
 moorish  idol(Zanclus  cornutus)  is  a  fish  related  to  the  tangs...it  is  a  fish  that  should  only  be  tried  by  advanced  hobbyists  as  it  is  very  difficult  to  feed  in  captivity..a  moorish  idol  has  a  gorgeous  look  about  it  and  is  associated  with  royalty...i  might  be  making  this  up  but  i  remember  some  telling  me!
 
 a  wimple  (Heniochus  sp)  is  related  to  the  butterflyfishes  and  is  the  exact  opposite  of  the  moorish  idol..though  they  look  similar  the  wimple  is  easier  and  hardier..feeding  is  also  not  a  problem..however  i  think  it  does  not  have  the  royal  look  of  the  MI
 
 check  out  fishindex  or  wwm  for  the  pics
 
 hope  this  helps
 
 regards

 shankar,
 
 can  you  identify  the  two  "sergeants"  that  i  have  with  me?
 
 I'm  trying  to  maintain  a  list  of  scientifc  names  for  all  my  marines,  so  any  and  all  help  will  be  appreciated.
 
 The  "wibbler"  is  actually  a  schooling  bannerfish,  a.k.a.  wimple  fish.

 Lance,
 I  think  you  should  give  us  a  better  shot  for  the  fish  below  to  positively  id  the  fish
 
 
 as  for  the  other  fish  I  think  it  is  a  'Black  spot  sergeant'

 aqua,
 
 You  identified  the  second  one  correctly.    I  believe  the  first  one  is  listed  in  this  website:
 
 http://www.fish-thailand.com/fishbook/damsel.htm
 
 near  the  bottom  part,  scientific  name  is:  Pomacentrus  sp.
 
 or
 
 Pomacentrus  aquilus
 
 what  do  you  think?

 @  Pironya
 
 That's  a  volitans  for  sure.
 
 @  Aquascapes
 
 That's  a  Bull's  Eye  on  the  latter's  ID.
 
 @  Lance
 
 Have  myself  sold  the  former  Damsel  (above)  quite  a  few  times.  Don't  have  a  proper  Sci  ID    Thumb Down  ,  as  what  confuses  me  is  that  the  babies  in  the  wild  that  are  still  taken  care  of  by  the  adults,  are  very  red  with  a  prominent  blue  dorsal  spot.  And  am  not  sure  that  an  aggressive  fish  like  the  so  called  Cocoa  Damsel  in  the  trade,  can  ever  do  a  baby  sitting  job  for  other's  sins.
 
 Anyway  will  post  infos  if  i  come  across  any.

 I  saw  some  nice  "cichlid"  behavior  from  the  unidentified  fish.    He  was  digging  out  a  place  under  a  live  rock,  making  shelter  for  himself...  that  was  so  cool...

 niranjan  (from  ASK)  and  his  friend  Kiran  came  by  my  place  today.    I'm  sure  they  were  dissappointed  by  me  tank...  but  they  pointed  out  a  lot  of  problems  with  it,  which  I  have  started  to  rectify.    
 
 They  noticed  that  there  was  not  enough  disturbance  (for  aeration),  so  took  care  of  that.    For  lighting,  I  was  suggested  a  marine  spectrim,  and  two  others.    I'm  working  on  that  right  now...  
 
 hopefully,  everything  will  work  out  fine.
