    Just a quick question. Why is it that I never see in any of the reef systems on the site any carpets. I've been thinking of picking one up but Im not sure of the challenge they represent. I've housed a Hatian for over 3 years so im pretty sure my system can house a carpet not to mention my clowns would love it.

    Shipping is hard on them and they don't acclimate very well. Also, they get huge usually can reach 24" across in less then two years. Plus like North said, they are the most common nems to eat fish, even their own clowns. I spent a considerable amount of money on fish in my tank and I'm not willing to risk one getting eaten.
