Plating Montipora. This is the first coral I ever bought. It has had its ups and downs (vermitid snail) but is doing very well now. The sea cucumber I had for a very long time but unfortunately went downhill and had to be removed from the tank this month.

Pretty sure this is Id hanging out over the button coral.  I ended up having to trade this for a beautiful accropora as it was getting unmanageably large.

**From LiveAquaria**: http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=15+18+1424&pcatid=1424 The Goldflake Angelfish, also known as the Gold-spangled Angelfish, displays beautiful gold spots throughout the body. The mouth region of this angel is brightly colored in blue and the fins, which are black in color, are bordered by a striking blue. A single Goldflake Angelfish will do well in a tank of at least 125 gallons with plenty of hiding places. Once established, the Goldflake Angelfish may become territorial. This Angelfish is one of the safer choices of the large Angels for the reef aquarium, and has proven not to pick on sessile invertebrates. This was once a very rare Angelfish to the hobby and has recently become available. Little is known about the reproductive behaviors of this fish. A varied diet of angelfish preparations, marine algae, live rock for grazing, and vitamin-fortified shrimp should be provided.

**Aquarium Care:** Species with thick, widely spaced pinules, visible tube feet, and small or no anchoring ceri have proven to do best in aquaria. These animals should only be attempted by the most knowledgeable of aquarists. **From Wikipedia:** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crinoid _Crinoids are marine animals that make up the class Crinoidea of the echinoderms (phylum Echinodermata). Crinoidea comes from the Greek word krinon, "a lily", and eidos, "form". They live both in shallow water and in depths as great as 6,000 metres. Sea lilies refer to the crinoids which, in their adult form, are attached to the sea bottom by a stalk. Feather stars or comatulids refer to the unstalked forms._ _Crinoids are characterised by a mouth on the top surface that is surrounded by feeding arms. They have a U-shaped gut, and their anus is located next to the mouth. Although the basic echinoderm pattern of fivefold symmetry can be recognised, most crinoids have many more than five arms. Crinoids usually have a stem used to attach themselves to a substrate, but many live attached only as juveniles and become free-swimming as adults.

**Bumblebee fish** (Brachygobius xanthozonus) is a small (around 4 cm long) fresh and brackish water goby from Indonesia. Taxonomy _Brachygobius xanthozona_ is distinct from many of the other species in the genus _Brachygobius_ and has been placed by some ichthyologists in the genus _Hypogymnogobius_. It is very rare in the wild, and has not been imported as an aquarium fish, despite the widespread use of the name in the aquarium literature. Synonyms Brachygobius xanthozona (Bleeker, 1849)
