Schooling Bannerfish

Anyone have any 1st hand experiences with these guys? Tank, food, tankmate requirments and such would be helpful. There isnt alot of info on these guys out there really, and i trust experience more anyways. Would one work in a 38x21x27 66 gallon reef tank?

Do you mean long fin bannerfish like a heniochus? I had one for a week before I returned mine. He ate great but he was a big bully for me.

Are these fish very hard to keep alive? Are they fragile?

Very cool! So, would a banner eat Nori? Ill be feeding that to an angelfish every day. Are they agressive so they should be added last?
