Is this a good fish to have in a home aquarium or do u guys think it's a fish that should be left alone to do it's job in the wild?

In my experience not a good fish for the home aquarium. Never seen one last longer than 3-4 months. IMO one of those that needs to stay out in the ocean.

The bigger (and more) fish that are housed with it, the more likey it will live(survive) longer.

3-4 months! Was talking to the guy I always go to at lfs and he advised against it! He said that most people buy one thinking they get rid of White spot but that's just a myth. Think this fish is deff one to be left in the ocean!! Plus not to sure if my clown trigger would tolerate it!
