    @Ravs,

    Just curious, What happened to the other Flagtail, was that the one you sold?

    Did they start fighting?

    Hahha these fish are just like naughty kids!

    You have been very lucky that your two have gotten along for so long as usually you can only keep one or they land up killing each other

    Just as a matter of interest, maybe you know already, they have a spike if i remember correctly, at the top of their mouth
    Something like the spikes of a clown loach which they use in a serious fight

    Yes, I love their personality. They even steal food from the Ray's. I haven't noticed the spike before. I was also lucky that mine never bothered about the slimecoat, Hendrik had a problem with his one sucking on the Ripsaw.

    Yes.. its strange that some do and some dont

    4 of ours are fine but one is being a bugger
    I caught him sucking on my P14, looks like its just the black rays so i have moved him but if he carries on I will have to find a home for him

    Waiting for breakfast, If I'm late then Milo the male Ray throws a tantrum and moves the sand all over.

    Looking good.

    How many times a day do you feed your Rays?

    Suppose I'm lucky with these 2. They seem to enjoy pellets more than frozen,

    Then again, I had a Silver Aro that loved pellets and an Albino Aro that only ate frozen.
