any of you ever kept an angler?

i was looking and ive been curious i have two clown fish now and a small clean up crew in a 55G i was wondering would the angler eat all my live stock? lol not saying i have any plans of getting one at the moment ive been curious if any of you ever had success keeping one without it eating all your other fish and inverts.

I've only ever seen them kept in species-only tanks, so I'm not sure how well that would work.

I'm sure if it got the opportunity it would try to eat whatever is in your tank.

I'd love to keep one though!

If it can fit in its mouth, it'll be considered food. If it can't fit in its mouth, it'll still try They need to be kept with much larger fish than clownfish and ones that tend to constantly be in motion (fast movers).

small fish and inverts will be yummy treats for an angler.
