Moorish Idol

I thought I'd start a thread for people that have had success with the Hawaiian/Moorish Idol in a reef environment. I also welcome people with fowlr setups that have had success too.

I hear that more that one together can prolong their life.

I've also heard about some sort of supplement for their sponge diet however cannot recall the name of such a product.

Which tank mates have been friendly and which have not?

Size tank you had?

How long have you been keeping marine fish? I don't own a moorish idol but I know that keeping one would not be easy even if it is from Hawaii.

I've been keeping marine for a couple of years now and I'm hoping next year to go 6 foot at around 800 litres.

A friend of mine has a pair of idols and so far has had great success with them. They were both quarantined correctly and his display tank is fallow.
