I hope the mystery killer is gone too, by the looks of it, I think he is!

Can you have a mandarin in the same tank as a nem, I was wanting to get one later, but I read somewhere my nem would eat him.

Cool maybe I'll try one someday, what are you supposed to wait like a year for your tank to be established?

They will eat dead or injured, but not a healthy fish. My RBT is at least 7" in diameter and has never tried to eat my hawkfish. My hawkfish literally will run through it and perch right next to with no issues. I did have a Condy that ate my clown and 6 line wrasse. Never heard of any other nem eating fish...
