I managed to get a small shipment of these fish this week - named after my friend and exporter Pat Yap :)

 

Here are just a couple of initial pics of the fish and I can see a sneaky fish in beside them.... very similar at first glance but has a much larger eye and slightly different shape...

usual crappy first day pics LOL more to follow...

Very nice Colin! Big-eyed one maybe a young R. cephalotaenia?

Cake or death?

yeah they are a very nice fish and seem to have settled in well - bit skittish perhaps but have put them in with some other fish to see if they settle down a bit better - no problem with their feeding though! 

 

R. cephalotaenia is a very close match - will give it a week or two then more pics :)
