Thanks for the info. I was told that if I had a starfish or even coral and my fish got sick I could not medicate cause it would probably kill the starfish and coral. Is this true or is there away around that? Perhaps a QT tank for the sickly. I plan on maintaining a healthy tank so I'm guessing this shouldn't be an issue.

Yeah we all planon keeping a healthy tank, but much like humans, fish get sick out of nowhere. Medicating a coral tank for a fish illness is extremely hit and miss, depends on what medication against what coral. Imo you are much better off going the route of a qt. All you need for it is water, filter, and some sort of pvc hiding tube... No rocks due to they soak up meds. That way if a fish gets sick, you can not only isolate it, but also rest knowing that your medication is getting to him only.

Sometimes you'll get lucky with puffers though. Mine nipped at corals once, and never again. I got really lucky. I still keep him well fed and an extra eye on him though
