Bicolor Pseudochromis

Anyone have one of these? How are they with Corals / inverts? It says they may attack "ornamental shrimp".... I have a candy striped... think I will have problems?

125g with a clown, algae goby, candy shrimp, bubble LPS, Duncan green and frog spawn.

I hear that the pseudos are pretty territorial fish and pretty angry fish too. I don't think they are bad towards coral, but it wouldn't surprise me if they would go for crabs/shrimp etc...

They wont bother corals, but they'll bother your other fish, shrimps, etc.

I would get a gramma. Same colors, bugger, and less aggressive (but still mean, add him last)
