As some of you know, we were lucky enough to come across some tank-raised black ocellaris while at MACNA. Even though they were pricy (by my cheap standards), they were still a steal, compared to what they go for regularly.

The pics don't do them justice, as they were too wriggly to really capture. The are in a 29 that we've had set up for a year and a half as a Banggai tank. Tankmates include a pair of Banggais, a cleaner and a peppermint, some assorted snails and a few hermits.

These guys are about 9 months old, and about an inch long. They were a cinnamon-brown color at birth, and will completely blacken over time. Their little orange noses are just adorable.

I don't usually buy reef inhabitants for their "cute-factor."

This was an exception.

They are so cute!!! I'm jealous....almost bought a pair when I got my orange percs, but didn't want to pay the asking price... (I can be pretty cheap too...)

I am so jealous.

These guys won't leave each other's sides, so I'm thinking that they're on the way to being a mated pair. :) I'm thinking about trying to raise the fry, should the inevitable happen once they grow up. ;)

Really beautiful, so glad to see you were able to get them (seller) to give up a pair!

Really beautiful, I would definitely be interested in some of the brood!
