    3 things:

    1. "It's fairly large, usually about a foot to a foot and a half long." - A fish that size would need a very large aquarium.

    2. "Atlantic spadefish feed on numerous types of bottom dwelling invertebrates. These include mollusks, crustations, corals, and various types of sea worms." - No, I'd say it's not reef safe.

    3. And where do you plan to get one?? No places sell fish like that.

    honestly i wasnt gonna reply but just wanna point out something, more than once youve said you dont care what people think, and really at the end of the day your gonna do what you wanna do regardless of what poeple advice you against, because well from what ive read you think you know more than most of the people here

    i have nothing against you but if you dont care what people have to say why even ask?

    that is all gnight

    I think he's just trolling now. Knows he can attention whether it's negative or not so he's going to say/do anything he can to irritate everyone.

    Can we just ban this kid? He's consistently disrespectful in chat, in the forums and worst of all to the creatures that he rapes the ocean to get.

    At least make an attempt to provide a stable healthy home for your animals.

    Be thankful I don't have the power to boot you from this site because I would be far far less tolerant of you crap demeanor and attitude.

    When one ignores all of the help they are given and refuses to listen to reasonable afvice or even acknowledge that it has been given then it becomes painfully clear of their intent.

    You want to listen to 100 opinions 99 of which are tellin you that what you are doing is flat out wrong but when you get one other idiot to agree with you it gives you the justification you so desire.

    YOU ARE WRONG.

    Actually, I don't get what your saying.Maybe it's the disregard for punctuation, but your point is lost on me. Are you saying that because people crowd Tangs into tanks that are too small, that you are somehow justified in jamming a similar wild fish into your little prison? Listen, I don't have the depth of knowledge, nor the experience to truly tell you what is right and what is wrong, I just see you butchering your english, then calling people, who clearly understand this hobby inside and out, dumbass. I'm probably out of line here, as I am new, but you sir, appear to be the dumbass. Making a comparison that is equally unjust doesn't bolster your case. It simply tells me that your only argument here is " everybody else is doing it." A typical rationalization for a 5 year old...is that your best defense?

    Banning him isn't going to stop him from abusing the hobby.

    Why do I get the feeling this thread is going to get closed...
