Schooling Bannerfish

Has anyone ever had a heniochus diphreutes (schooling bannerfish) or the Longfin Bannerfish ( heniochus acuminatus). What can you tell me about them?

They grow to about 10 inches, they are not reef safe. Minimum recommended tank size is 80 gallons..as with any schooling fish, they need room to swim.

Is it possible to have one in a tank or must they be in a group?
