Looks like a Planehead, but definitely is a Filefish. I just saw some for sale in Sacramento the other day.

Oh yeah it's a Acreichthys tomentosus (I think).
Sullivan, do you have any problems with nipping?

Thanks!!!

The fish is Acreichthys tomentosus, and yes, he nips only on one acropora.

Felicidades! Congrats!
Do you do anything to the water you pick up off the island?
Was just thinking about the introduction of pathogens that could potentially wreck havoc in a closed system.

Hi jsdancer,

No, I don't. Maybe a risk, but up to now with no problems.

Great tank, congratulations on TOTM. I was also curious about the file fish and it's interesting it only nips at one coral. Does it do much damage?
The additional pix are spectacular, thanks for adding them.

No, if feed 3 times/day, then he doesn't nip on corals.

Amazing tank! What type of gas springs do you use with your hood? I want to do the same thing with the hood I'm designing. Thanks!
