    LOL thats the tailspot blenny that came swooping in....the yellow watchman and the pistol arent a pair persay but the watchman never leaves that area and is always "protective" twards anything that goes over there.

    nice pistol. Mine's yellow. All I ever see of him are his antennae, or if I shine a light under the tank to see him from below :D

    Damn, sorry Dana!! :frustrat: But I could've been a bigger b*tch and posted my video of my pistol scurrying around under my tank :D But YOUR pistol is waaaaay prettier than mine. Mine doesn't even come out for food, let alone have nice bright colors :D


    Originally I was supposed to put one under my tank. But by the time I got the stuff, we were all just tired of lifting the tank, and just never put it under.
