And coffeetwitch would like me to ask if anyone has any ideas for active swimmers in our tank? Keep in mind we'll eventually have corals and stuff in there and currently we have the 2 clowns, Mus, a pajama cardinal, a peppermint shrimp and some hermits. I would like some sort of star fish, but if none are reef safe I understand. I think I'd also like an emerald crab, maybe one of those pretty blue hermits. Ok I've ran on long enough. Any ideas?

We looked at a fox face last night. I'm kind of in love. Will he get along with the blue tang? Also sorry to hear about your beauty!

The owner of the fish store said no coral beauty. I can't remember why

They tend to nip at corals however many tell me not to worry about it. It is hit and miss. I am debating getting one right now.

My friend mark (the guy I got my tank from) had a coral beauty for 2.5 years, then one night it went on a coral rampage. It died when it tried to eat some button polyps/zoas and ingested the palytoxin or something. It's what made him give up the hobby. Luckily for me...

May be doing the same. May pick up some $5.00 frags this weekend. One LFS has what would be $20.00 frags anywhere else. I am still waffling back and forth between the Kole Yellow Eye Tang (tank is a bit small) or the Coral Beauty (will it prevent me from keep corals). Most likely going with the Coral Beauty.
