Question ???stupid purchase??? HELP!!

Went to my LPS an bought a couple frags and a Koran Angle fish which Ron the owner told me the Koran would be fine in a reef tank. Well after a little research I have read several articles that say that is a no no. Do I need to remove the Koran? The Koran is a juvenile.

How big is your tank? I believe it says you need a 250g tank for that fish.

Hers the link from liveaquaria

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Welcome to the LFS and their lies or lack of knowledge. Either way he got you. I bought a small reference book now that I carry with me in my car just in case i see an impulse buy fish. i got hosed too, was told a scooter blenny was just another blenny. LIE. It's like a mandarin and eats pods. Silly lfs's

I would return it especially if youre thinking of a reef tank, as he is not reef safe, not even marked with caution, lol, just say NO.

Good luck!

You really have to research every thing yourself The one think i like about my LFS is that have a com set up so they or the customer can look things up on the spot that and the fact the owner has had SW tanks for the past 40 yrs. even if he's not 100% he will take the time to check things out

You may have to drane some water or make trap out of 2 liter bottle put some food in it and pull it when inters one way to makei the trap is to cut the top off and put it back up side down thus making a funnel he will swim in and have harder time getting out
