    Ideal for the reef aquarium will not harm any invertebrate tankmates and will eat some algae. A popular fish for conditioning new aquariums because it is able to tolerate water conditions that will kill other species. Juveniles are striking in color, and a group makes a intersting display, Unfortunately, they grow to become a threat to each other and to tankmates that are less aggressive or simialr in size. Their presence can make life difficult or impossible for mild mannered community species. Adults can be kept in male female pairs or singly. House in a moderately aggressive community tank with fishes like larger dottybacks, angelfishes, and puffers. In the wild juveniles will shelter in sea anemones.
    Good luck. hope this answers your question. any fish that resides in an anemone is subject to being eaten, but, may not happen with species that do this as a matter of social interaction.
