Ive heard that as far as angelfish go, bandit angelfish can relatively safe for reef tanks. Does anyone have successful experience, or unsuccessful attempts at keeping a bandit in a reef? ive heard the same for goldflakes, so if anyone happens to have info on that, Id be happy to hear, also.
Ive never dealt with lyretail anthias, so I'm not really sure what to expect. Would they eat fish small enough to swallow? I know some anthias will, but no clue about most. What about reef compatability? Would they eat small shrimp and such, cause it will have fish and shrimp in sizes down to tiny(maybe even sexy shrimp)? Would that work, or would I need to put it into FOWLR? At the moment I have a TINY, barely larger than an inch&1/2, convict blenny in my QT, which MIGHT be small enough to fit in the mouth of a lyretail I'd like to get. If I get the anthias it would have to go in with the blenny. Is that a risky situation? Thanks for any and all help, everyone:)
I've only recently started really getting into fairy wrasse, but I can't seem to get definitive information on keeping them together. It was my understanding, stemming from firsthand experience, albeit pretty limited, that at least some of the common ones(lubbocks, carpenters, etc) can happily live together with different species, even in small tanks, but as far as in general, everyone seems to have different opinions(well, of "yes" and "no", anyway). So, overall can different species live together? In any dynamic-males/males, famales/females, males/females, males&females/males, m&f/f, m&f/m&f "/" = different species a tank full of many different fairy&flasher wrasse species would be absolutely jaw dropping!!!!
I'm getting (a) pinecone fish and soon flashlight fish, and I really want to know if it's safe to put cleaner shrimp I. With them. I'm sure it's fine while they're small, but both aren't your standard reef fish. Even though they live in reefs, I don't know if cleaner shrimp are out and working at night, and if not, those fish might not be familiar with their work, so I'm worried about when they get big enough to make a meal of a shrimp.
