Great photos! Love the variety of the surgeonfish, gobies, wrasses and angels.

Keep 'em coming! :-)

Hey, those pictures are very nice. What type of aquarium setup was this? Was it one big one, or several smaller ones? Anyways, thanks for sharing because you take good pictures.

wow, a unicorn tang.

Hello everybody!
Thanks for all your kind words!
Concerning the aquarium settings, it's mostly medium sized tanks (medium sized for public aquarium which means already a lot bigger than most of us could afford to have). Many species cohabitating together, setting mostly made of rocks (sometimes living, sometimes false), sometimes corals.
Some species like Coris aygula and the very small goby live in very small tanks but setting always remains quite nice.
There's also a bigger tank with sharks (blacktip, whitetip, nurse), guitarfish (Rhinobatos rhinobatos), snappers, grunts, groupers and some trevallies.
Hope this helps!

I will try to post one more set of pics before the end of december as I'll be leaving in less than two weeks for about a month in Asia (Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia)... that means huge amount of pictures to show you when i'll be back! ;)
