That's ok - when I re-read my post it sounded pretty sassy and I sure didn't mean it that way AT ALL!!! Please accept my apology as well.

I leave lights off as well when they are "new". I think it helps with the stress of the move.

Some of these darn fish are just so camera shy!!!

Yep Tried 6 times so far, he enters his coconut cave for 5 mins, comes out does a huge flaring display, sees the camera and shoots back in.

Apology accepted no worries at all, Hahah.

How long do you tend to leave the lights off for?

Thanks Will do.

Going to get him some more live plants too but no idea what.

So Far we have Java moss and some Cabomba Caroliniana (Green)(which is growing well without added nutriants so far).

Might get some Java fern and tie it to something (java moss is tied to the coconut cave)
