I don't let a fish that is tough to keep scare me from getting it if that's what I want in my tank. This hobby is about gaining experience. They eat aiptasia and all I have is a baby aiptasia right now. I do also feed it the other foods that it eats so the aiptasia won't be it's only food source. Thank you for your input though.

Neither was I. I understand. I have a scopas tang, a dog face puffer, a red coris wrasse and a rectangular trigger. It is a 110 gallon or so.

I've had my coon for over a year now. They are one of the easier butterflys to keep. Mine loves flake and nori. He mimics my naso, funny stuff. I hand feed him minced pieces of shrimp and he goes nuts.
