Problem is while there are soem things most of us agree on you dotn want there are others that are much debated. For example some folks think you acutally dont want bristleworms in your tank where as others desire them. Same with cukes and mantis (belive it or not)

I think it could be useful to have a page of common pests for a typical reef tank. It wouldn't apply to everyone but it would give newbies a heads up.

And it would make it a lot easier for people to help others if they could just post a link to that page instead of writing out the same information everytime.

Sounds like work though.. nevermind

I understand some people like to keep mantis and such but alot of people new to this hobby dont know what they are, I mean I didnt. If we had some type of page where it would say not recommended for these reasons and let people make up there own mind. I didnt know cucumbers where bad and could kill my whole tank till I read a post last night, makes me wonder what other things I would like to have that are bad ideas

hmmm, like damsels, CC starfish and unidentified crabs? All 3 are on my personal no-no list. LIke Freek said, what might be right for you might not be right for some. It takes different strokes, it takes different strokes, it takes different strokes to run the world...

I think it would be helpful, even if some desire certain critters and others don't. Just put in the description as why someone would or wouldn't want the certain critter and/or fish.

I dont know that cucumbers are bad, but should probably be left to experts. I have a small cucumber that hitchiked on my LR and I have no intention of getting rid of him.

I really wanted a sea apple till i did some research and got some feedback on AA, I'm glad I didnt make that purchase, so a sticky with things that could be considered bad would be a great idea. Wouldnt take more tha a couple hundred hours to put together, but think of all the help it would be !!!
