Mmm, honestly I'm liking it so far. Just a tad slow, since reef-a-plooza takes forever to come by (this coming Saturday). I have like $400 saved up for it. Going to get my 2nd/3rd scolys there along with my bml 20k light.

accurate color of the lighting, not so much some of the corals though.

Holy ####, man. I would NOT have just put something that expensive without QT, especially with other fish that you just added.

i live dangerously.

nah, the LFS has its own QT system in the back and before each fish is put on display it goes through 6 weeks of QT. (i know, i've seen the system) besides, i'll let you in on a little secret.... it was only $107

 

(and i'm debating on taking the tang back, he's a bit of a d***)

$107.... then that's not a candy basslet, it's a Swales Swissguard basslet, Liopropoma swalesi.

you're right. its also known as an "indonesian candy basslet"

http://www.marinehabitat.co.uk/indonesian-candy-basslet-liopropoma-swalesi/

 

but mine looks nothing like that. there's no orange, its pink and red with blue fins.

 

looks like this:

The Petco picture is nothing like any Swissguard I've seen lol, but yeah, I've seen a lot of places before get 'candy' basslets that are just swalesi. The cheapest I've ever seen L. carmabi (the real candy) go for is around $600.
