    Had a couple friends tell me to check out the latest threads....WHOAAA!
    All I have to say is I am glad I was in Florida and when I came back I was too busy cleaning and caring for my FISH TANK! :frustrat:
    This may be more interesting than the Crackberry forums I used to peruse!!!! :bowdown:
    BTW, before this thread is closed, can you PM me first??? JK! :mrgreen:


    PS. Can't wait to see all the pokes and jabs!

    How do you keep your sand so clean and white?

    They do NOT jump (I know mine hasn't) and they are more than reef safe!
    As my LFS guy says, "No reef tank is complete without a Hawkfish!"

    Conchs, Nasarius snails (lots) sand sifting star, sand sifting gobie, and Urchins!
    Probably too many sand sifters but the sand is white!

    I just looked them up and it said they might eat or pick at your shrimp. Do you have shrimp?

    They "may" go after ornamental shrimp. That being said, if fish are not fed regularly they may go after smaller prey. I have a skunk cleaner but that's it, no peppermints.
    When I tell you that the Hawk is about as peaceful as any reef fish, it is all over the tank, rocks and loves to sit down...great fish!

    I feed my fish plenty so I'd probably be okay.
