Coral beauty

Does anyone have any tips about coral beauties? Just got a very small one and want some tips. The store owner said it was from Bali so it is a better looking fish. I don't know if that's true but that's what he said.

This is a some what aggressive species and wouldn't be the best option for a reef tank

Hasn't chased the clowns and acts like the corals don't even exists... I guess I got lucky but I just got done trapping both my peppermint shrimp because I saw both of them ripping the inside of my frogspawn out and eating it!!!!! So muck for reef safe!!!!!

Every fish and invertebrate is different so it's not that strange. The coral beauty will probably establish a territory and not be overly aggressive

You need at least a 75 for a tomini. And was the frogspawn flesh dead? They usually don't do that.

I'm getting a baby tomini and I'm upgrading very soon. Yah I'm positive it was eating the frogspawn! I thought I was seeing things but I guess not! I took the shrimp back and got some aqua man zoas and some hermits.
