Has anyone experienced this little guy?

No, the aren't interested in corals. They do best in small harems, 5+, and tend to hover just above the substrate.

Yes, a harem is a group of fish that shoal together and usually of the same species (think anthias). Chalk bass can be shy, which is why 5 or more is optimal.

You wouldn't be even close to overstocking the tank, if that's what you mean? 5 chalk bass would be just fine.
