    Watch your fish too,when he gets bigger he more than likely will start pinching at them and ripping their fins...mine was a PITA..

    I hope he stays reef safe for you. I had one when I first got into the hobby that loved to munch on ANY kind of polyps I added to the tank.

    Well i havent been able to watch him as i have been at my g/f's that past 2 days...he has found a rock to hide under as of right now. I'm going to feed the tank and see if he comes out. I will watch him closely as if he starts eating any corals he's gone like the wind....on another note, i just caught my emeral pinching at my flower pot that is looking GORGEOUS, wtf is with him.

    I'll bet he was just picking some from between the polyps.
