picked up a couple chromis today for my 20. The house will be done in about a month so I'm counting the days until the new 75 gallon setup. Also picked up a free 55 gallon tank for my nephew.

Too many of these creatures die due to poor lighting, poor water quality, overfeeding, underfeeding, etc. that the few that live 5+ years in a tank don't justify the trade.

Now for those who have had a reef tank for 5 years and already know how to keep very stable water parameters I may understand getting one and fragging it for sale/trade. At least that helps to leave the wild population intact. But until there is sufficient quantites of fragged anemones for sale, please think again about getting one. Clown fish don't need one. They move around and kill other corals trying to find a 'happy place'. They die all too soon and suddenly, though most waste away for a period of months till they show signs of it (at which point it's too late to help).

Agreed. Nice Cmor.

Oh, and the flame angel is NOT reef safe. You should check that compatibility if you are planning on going reef in the future. When they say "with caution" that means it's hit or miss. Like the Coral Beauty and all Centropyge, they may be fine for years and then develop a taste and start munching.

Like Mike's (melosu) did. He tore his tank apart to catch two Pygmy Angels

So far my Coral Beauty has been a good citizen (6 years). BUT I've got my eye on it as I add more sps. I'd hate to have to pull it out of the tank, but the corals cost more.
