Hi, thanks for the great reply!
The green brittle star will likely go, he has grown huge and although he is yet to attack anything, it's an risk I don't want. Currently I'm keeping him full with raw shrimp! I have literally hundreds of baby brittles in the tank that hitchhiked some live rock, I think they are too small to identify but they appear white and black striped. I saw some small red stars at the lfs
that looked awesome and are reef safe, not sure what kind but they only grow about 1 inch and have the traditional star shape.
I have no corals yet (except for a couple of small polyps and some anemones that occasionally sprout up) but would like to in a year or so.
I have always wanted a flame angel and have heard that some do fine with corals, I wouldn't mind if it nipped at the odd one but would it be incompatible?
That tang looks nice, I think I may prefer it to the kole tang, thanks!
Would a mated pair of coral banded shrimp be okay housed with a regular cleaner shrimp?
I like the goby!
I have heard cardinals can be a bit aggressive once they get big?
Also, forgive my ignorance, but I recently saw a dwarf purple lobster, how would that do in a tank with the above livestock? Just curious on this one because they look really cool!
