I think I'm done now
adding fish. I got a Banggai cardinal for the reef, he'd been at the LFS since 6/17, and a Bi-color angel for the 75g.
The cardinal eats like he's never been fed, but the angel is too busy finding all the caves to notice that I am the "food god" . Hopefully tonight he will be hungry and eat........fish happens

I'd keep an eye on that Bi-colour angel. They have terrible survival rates in captivity, especially for a Centropyge.
Most come from the Indo-Pacific and are collected with various drugs, including cyanide. I think Vanuatu and Australia are the only countries which export these fish and do not use drugs.
If it is eating, that is a good start. Just be prepared to put a lot of effort into it to keep it's health up. 4-5 feedings a day for the first few weeks is what I would do

Bi colors are beautiful fish but are very difficult to keep prolonged in an aquarium.

I do know of one here in NZ which has been kept for about 7 years. It's massive.
Let me try and find a pic of it
