Why wow? Because we haven't seen it since before last summer! It was only a fleeting glimpse as he darted out from some rock around the back of the tank to grab a bit of food. Considering the amount of time we spend around the tank, I'm surprised we haven't spotted him sooner. We also have a red f/fish which shows his face a bit more often, usually spotted once or twice a week.

I've given up keeping them for that reason. I always pair them and they stay out for a couple of months then 1 dissappears into a hole in the sand under a rock, then the other dissappears in the same hole. Sometimes they turn up a few months later extremely thin then I assume they die.

I always thought they were breeding, but not sure.

Glad yours turned up.
