Stocking advices for FOWLR turning reef...

I am currently thinking of building a FOWLR for my 132g which I will keep several non-reef safe fishes like the angels and butterflies. But the problem is I am not sure if this will be a problem should I change my mind in the future to turn it into a reef tank. Will it be hard to catch the fishes?

All my current livestocks are reef-safe for future options but I am thinking of adding some angels and buttleflies. What would you suggest me to do? Thanks.

a rule of thumb to use : if you add a fish be prepared to never remove it . They all can be difficult to remove if you are thinking reef tank in the future I would suggest sticking with reef safe fish . Or set up a sump that you can see and add the non reef safe ones to it .

They will be difficult to remove and you need to think about if your LFS will take them back. Some will not take back. It `s really up to you.

If you're prepared to capture them in a reasonable safe way, and then get credit from your LFS then go for it... otherwise... don't.
