PJ cardinals! Need to keep at least 3 in odd numbered groups. Look at gobys and blennys. Looks kind of like a duck-fish to me (sarcasm).

Actually, i would agree with the cardinals. Thoms been trying to spread them onto people lol, and i totally agree. Those fish are awesome. And if i had room i would get them. But definitely go for a blenny or goby. Those things are sweeeet.

Being that they are carnivores LA says they are reef safe with caution. It will be hit or miss.

It says With Caution for the hawkfish.. for reefs. So i would say no.. if you want to sleep peacefully at night.
