I think I'm gonna stick with my plan and get the pair. And I'll look into the starfish, I do have a baby starfish in my tank. Saw it on my snails shell yesterday but is almost invisible cos it's so small. I am assuming a free hitch hiker on my rock. Hope it's safe in there!!

Also anyone else got any idea on the kole tang and there experience? Or maybe other ideas for my show fish? And how reef safe is a coral beauty? I hear mixed reports in them.

Also here's a better fts. The other was a week or so old
You're welcome!! I like how in the pic the circle right around the conch is clean. Haha!! I like to watch my conch, how they stick those stalk eyes out in different directions, and they'll stick their tongues waaaaayyyy out. And they can take really big steps. They're interesting to watch.

Yeah he's so cool! Great idea on him! Heres an after shot of the job he's done. And I'm assuming he's fine in the reef, I'm not even sure he can climb rocks lol.

Yeah, conchs are reef safe. It's just a big snail kinda. Stays on the sandbed. It can "walk" over other shells and stuff, but can't crawl up side of rocks or on the glass.

I think it would be OK, but I've read reviews on LA that it picks on inverts and bullies fish and I've seen a youtube vid of him for some reason eating LPS corals so the guy took it out.

Oh ok, this I had not heard thank you. I'll be sure to add him last then to try and lower the chance of aggression.

And the conch is awesome! I'd recommend them for sure now I've seen them in action. Sand is a lot cleaner now
