    Additional Information & Description

    I can't say enough about PAL! We got Pal when he was a baby, he had two huge eyes...and just a head.
    He was just so cute, and he immediately became Stephen and I's favorite fish. He gets excited when sung to, he starts spinning his fins when we tell him to "Spin Out" and he gives kisses.
    If you put your hand in the tank, he comes and sits in it....our Bursa Trigger "Trig" treats him like a son. Trig was the first addition, and then Pal. He's still doing great, and finally has gotten bigger! He's in the 75G FOWLR.
    Now, now, now...a Diva is a female version of a HUSTLA.

    Thats awesome. A reef tank is really nice but the fish you cant have kinda stinks at times. So many cool fish like triggers, puffers and many wrasses.

    Glad he is doing well.
