Tassle File

My wife has recently fallen in love with the tassle file at the LFS. We were told that the tassle file is a hardy fish, but it just looks so fragile. I'm a little concerned about it 'making it' in our 75g FOWLR. The current residents are:

2 clowns
1 six-line wrasse
1 coral beauty
1 flame angel

Do you guys have any experience with keeping the tassle file? Is the 75g large enough with my current residents? TIA

You may have problems with the Angels picking on the Tasseled Filefish. IME, they are pretty hardy but not as hardy as their distant relative the triggerfish. They are a shy fish also. All the Tasseled Filefish I have seen all look real skinny, but I guess that is just the way they are.

The angels may be a problem, but if he is of good size, I think he would be fine in there.

Woo Hoo, PAYDAY! Time to pay the LFS rent (even before I pay mine )
