    Please list your guesses with the corresponding numbers. The first correct guess wins! We know sling guessing games are hard so if no one guesses BOTH species correctly the first person to guess at least ONE species correctly will be the winner. And I'll give you guys a hint, both species are pretty common in the US hobby... so, no, #2 is not a Monocentropus balfouri, although it looks like it.

    Yes! Congrats Erin! Of course she has to win the week she stops having a phone/internet connection. :( Can't get a hold of her right now!

    We won't be doing these hard guessing games in the future, haha.
