Just curious the species, I don't think he even cares but it would probably be good to determine it's tank size requirements. I know he plans on keeping it in a 75 it's in a 29 holding tank for now.





Should be an easy id with clear photos. I could probably figure it out myself but I'm sure one of you knows just by looking at it.

thanks

I'm with CaptFish on the ID (for the same reason) so tank size is a definite concern.
