Yea ive done a good deal of research when it comes to the stock list. The only thing that is equally diefferent all the time is the foxface... Soo many say yea, soo many say no. I would have no problem rehoming the fox. I do work at a reef store and I would order a 2 inch or so, one-spot foxface.

If you buy it small and don't keep it long, it might be okay. The mistake that a lot of people make in scenarios like this is that they say they will rehome it later, but they wait until the fish is already too large or health issues arise and then decide to rehome. IMO, the damage has already been done and the fish will likely not do well in the new home. If you absolutely have to get one, get rid of it sooner than later.

My LFS had a huge Foxface last week too. Probably close to a foot long and thick body. I'm not sure I've ever seen one that large before.

The other concern for rehoming is sometimes it may be difficult to catch and may require removing most or all of your corals and rock which can be a pain. It's hard enough setting up rock the way you want it the first time as well as placing your corals where you want them and then there is having to adjust powerheads again. Just not worth it.

I agree to that too after just catching two Chromis in a 240g with 275+lbs of rock.

They both get large and swim a ton. This pizza place near me has a 240 gallon and the sailfin makes the tank look small. It is massive and owns all the other fish.
