Just pull it out slowly (obviously turn off pump, skimmer, etc). I was nervous the first time too, but I've had to do it a few times and it makes life a lot easier.

I googled it. That fish is awesome! I hope that it doesn't eat your inverts or munch on your coral. Hopefully you can get a picture of him!

So far he seems to be doing okay. I havent noticed any damaged corals or missing parts Lol I hope he never eats them bc he's such an awesome fish and id hate to lose him. He's only about an inch right now. Soo tiny! Lol

Ok well the puffer does pick st some of my corals. Mainly my 2 acans. :/ I think one of em is in jeopardy of dying soon. Also my giant purple cap colony is starting to get white specs all over. I think I noticed him pecking at it one day. Anyone have any ideas on how to get him to stop or is he always gonna do this?

Once puffers get the taste for corals it is very hard to stop them from eating them. You can try feeding more, little and often to try and keep him full. They say that fish only pick at corals when they are hungry how true that is I don't know.

How is the yellow tang getting on Dan?
