What sized tank and are you planning on corals?

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

IMO the two fish would get along but as Scott was trying to allude to was the Black & White Heniochus will not be coral safe in your tank if you decide to go with corals down the road.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

They will be fine together, but Heniochus do need large displays. You may have better luck with H. acuminatus being planktivores by nature if corals are a concern.
