Guilty of not researching first as charged. Guy at LFS knows my tank and stock and said it would be fine. I researched the night i bought him and went out next morning and bought a sponge. Hes been picking at it and mainly picking the live rock. Seems to be ok so far, hangs with the tusk mainly. Swims a lot and darts around the power heads.
