I have never seen a healthy fish run into a stinging coral, or any coral for that matter, but I suppose it's possible.

Actually that's what my son said. I've had him for months really heathy. I've recently added a few new corals. Chili coral, a hammer and a lobophyllia. I also have a bubble tip anemone. When I got in the room the fish was tensed a white blotch on its side. And lying in the sand. He just passed away.

The chili coral will most likely die along with the naso. They aren't a coral that should be in closed systems. I'm sorry about your tang.

O ok thx. Chili was a good deal. I do realize some fish and coral should remain in the ocean. Hopefully I have some luck. Thx for the advice

Yes, they look nice but they are filter feeders. You need some real nutrient filled water to keep one alive, which makes it really difficult to keep a nice looking reef.
