Mr. Tay, more commonly known online as Digiman from Singapore, is a rare fish enthusiast that has been featured on ReefBuilders on a few occasions. Enthusiast is an understatement to his passion and Digiman is someone who knows his rare fish very well. It’s very obvious from all his past and current tank set ups that Digiman is not much of a coral person and prefer keeping fish, rather than sclerectinians.
As seen in his old tanks featuring the sanguineus hogfish and the fuscipinnis anthias, corals are more or less absent or devoid in the mostly FOWLR style tanks. Apart from the conspicuous angelfish, gem tang, masudai hogfish and joculators that he’s kept before, Digiman has a knack for oddball fishes like this Sirembo jerdoni. This time he decided that a smaller tank was more manageable and would open up a whole new collection of fish more suited in a community style tank.
His mostly liverock-and-diatom video above showcases a pair of latezonatus clownfish, a marginatus damselfish from the Red Sea, a tiny interruptus angelfish, the very elusive poliourus angelfish, a pair of Red Sea eight line flasher wrasses, a magnificent pair of Johnson’s fairy wrasses, a juvenile borbonius anthias, a Marshall island multibar angelfish, a very rare Liopropoma africanum, the gorgeous snow basslet Serranus chionaraia, Pseudoplesiops rosae, Lubbockichthys multisquamatus, Pseudochromis tapeinosoma, Chrysiptera traceyi and a Gramma linki. Not all of them can be seen in the video but a large majority of them made their appearance. With that many cool fish, it’ll probably be awhile before another upgrade ensues featuring bigger more robust fish again.
