My problem with the butterfly is not so much it being fragile but it nipping on featherdusters/anemones/etc depending on what you want in your reef tank.

Everywhere has said that the BHT needs atleast a 100g. And it has to be long. Which I have. But why would it need a bugger tank? Too many other fish already? And I looked up about longnose B nipping, I don't think I want one anymore, thanks.

How long is the tank? I believe the recommendation is for at least a 6' long tank. Unless skinny and shallow I didn't think they made a 100g tank that was 6' long, more like 4 or possibly 5.

Also, I don't know where you read that they are OK in 100g. Most places I've seen said at least 125 or 150, which are 6' long tanks.
