Congrats. I'm jealous.  I got a half dozen of these back in January.  Neat little fish. They all died within a month.  I'll need to try again soon.

not really a fan of tang fish but have had many julis and chalinochromis and really liked them and will do them again....

a very neat, somewhat uncommon fish.  Julies are a fish that have caused me more trouble than I care to remember.  Wild ones die very easily.  Tank raised are typically tough as nails.  It wasnt uncommon for me to get 12 wild ones and lose them all within 3 or 4 months.  A researcher wrote an article about this in the ACA magazine which basically said they are wussy fish that get compromised very easily and the thing to do is to dose them with meds the second you get wilds in.  I never liked that approach so i stopped bringing them in.

I am really surprised by how small the free swimming fry are.  I remember breeding some j. marlieri a while back but I didn't see the fry until they ventured outside of their cave.

I've got a group of five transcriptus in with 10 o.boops and 19 a.compressiceps.  They are in an elevated 125g that has a little bit of sand but not too much.  The julies have been hanging near a rock a lot, so I've been looking through the glass from below to see if they've been gaurding eggs.  Last night i noticed a few tiny fry cruising around.  Not sure which two are the parents, the five julies get along reasonably well, which is odd.

Here's a picture of one of the transcriptus
