I kept one recently. The one that loved to decimate my aiptasia population.

Unfortunately, year later it went carpet surfing.

Default Oh My Dead Fish

After having this lovely fish for almost a year it just turned up dead and stuck to my powerhead. guess I put the whammy on him. But my coral are opening up much better than they were in months. Go figure. Polyp nipper

Sometimes fish die with no explanation. What can i say is the cause when all other fish are swimming fine. Maybe the diet he took on wasn;t the best nutritional value for the animal. Maybe shift in water parameters did him in. In any case I'm sure he'll be missed.
