Keep in mind the only time you will see him in a reef tank is with a flashlight at night and maybe a claw sticking out when feeding.

That's very true. I've kept a lot of freshwater crawfish (I know they're not the same) so I have some experience setting up a tank where I could see him all the time. But it would have to be a reef with just him in it. I think it would be pretty cool. I do have an empty 40 gallon... Lol

It definitely has the potential to be really boring. But if It were him, a cuc, and maybe a couple clowns and smaller fish it would be cool. I'm just planning on investing in some expensive stuff for my 100 gallon and it makes me nervous that something could eat some of it. But I guess that would be the risk that comes with having one.

What do you think it's going to eat? I don't think it's going to bother with corals, and it's not going to catch a healthy fish.

Right now I only have 1 clown fish, a 6-line wrasse, and a blue/green chromis. I don't think it could catch any of those. But couldn't it kill shrimp and things of that sort?

Looks good! I have a lot of hair algae on my glass. But, besides that all is well. I kind of like the way it sways in the flow lol. Eventually a tang that I get hopefully can graze it.

Thanks!! I need a better cuc. I always have algae all over my glass. But I think that's just having a saltwater tank! Btw, I'm still in love with your new lights. I have huge news for the 100 gallon build today!
