The shop I worked for kept them in the fish only system so I don't have any experience with them in a reef. I do think that the most commonly available Heniochus will grow too large for the tank.
Okay thank you, i will ask some more people about them!
haha i saw them at the lfs
and we really want to get one. Should it be the last fish we add? I want 1 bigger fish that will be my centerpiece and im looking for other fish like a bannerfish..
