3)friend of mine fragged me a piece donno what it was he said his is worth 300 dollars. umm forget the name. anyways so i glued it to a rock and placed it in the center of the tank closest to the light . my hermits keep picking it off ( ive caught them twice doing it) only at night though. and no its nowhere to be found they picked at it so much that i only found i tiny piece that prob. wont make it.
1) I would go with one or the other.
2) This is not a fish for your size tank nor is it one that should be added to a tank that is less then a year old or one that does not have a refugium. Madarins feed almost entirely on live food. Copepods. Your tank will not have enough of a food source to support this fish.
3)Hermits are good at cleaning and they are also good at causing issues. Depending on what the coral was it may or may not survive from the small piece that is left.
