          Very nice guys. i have never seen a juvi like that Chuck!

          i wish i could get one of these guys, but am afraid to get one. The last one i had in the 180 never picked at corals, but man was that sucker mean! he killed 2 fish i tried to introduce after him.

                  How much food are you guys having to feed these fish to keep them from mowing down all your corals?

                  I know if you keep them well fed they'll be somewhat reef safe, But i am leary of feeding that much.
                  180 mixed reef, extreme 40gal frag tank, 33 gal sump,30 gal fuge, profilux plus II controller,profilux doser, GEO 618 CA/RX tunze 6100's, BK 250 internal, 2 400watt halides, 4 blue plus t-5's on icecap ballast, I run GFO, and dose vodka,sugar, and vinigar with ammino acids, and use somewhat of the balling method.

                    Good question. Exactly what I'd like to know as I'm seriously considering adding an angel or two to my tank

                    Is there anyone out there who can give us a quick 101 on risking it with angels in a reef tank?

                          This is one of the best fish I have owned. Been with me around 3 years now. Measures around 10" and grunts like John Holmes ... that was a joke...



                          Cheers,
