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.

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities...have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

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!
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

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.
I'm tired of getting pointless messages. If your going to start a conversation or ask me something, keep up with it.
