Yellow Goatfish

Has anyone had any experience with yellow goatfish? Are they relatively easy? I have a 250 gallon fish only tank with a few hermits and snails.

Per mel's post, from liveaquaria:
"The older Yellow Goatfish is prone to eat small crustaceans, fish, and worms."
I don't have any experience, so I can only point out what I have read. They look pretty cool!

Beautiful fish, but get kind of big and are voracious eaters. Never kept one, but everything i've read has pointed to them being pigs.
