Yeah. I was trying to get across that it kinda depends on what other fish you have to keep them in check. Sorry.

I had a yellow tail kill 2 emerald crabs, 2 shrimp, and nearly killed a clown all in one night. A pair of clowns with some attitude could keep it from picking on the clowns but everything else is shark bait. They really are indiscriminate killers many times. And for me its not worth the risk. They are famously aggressive and territorial. Would not add them unless they are with predominately aggressive fish to keep them in check. Just my opinion, yes you can get lucky but i myself wouldnt risk it. My be fine at first but the older they get the meaner they get
