    Oi decisions decisions. Right i have the three angel and a trigger fish ready to go over to my main system, these are the Regal angel, blue faced angel, the majestic angel as well as a small clown trigger. Now all these fish are not 100% reef safe but i have heard of aquarists keeping these fish in reef systems. I have had them in my frag tank and none of them have touched any SPS, LPS or softies and all are eating prepared foods. Do i take the chance here and add them all at once and confuse the Achilles tang or do i add them one at a time? Damn come to think of it do i add them at all? They will be very difficult to remove once in the system.

    This may not be much help but I have a naso, Majestic and a dwarf lemon in my reef.
    Added them all at once to save them making their own territory and have had no problems ......... six months together now.

    I guess no exact answer here.................

    It's your call but just worth knowing I think if you add at all , add together.

    Well the deed is done and the Achilles has gone ballistic, my poor blue face has pieces out of his fins and the majestic cant come out of hiding and he gets flashed. the regal and clown trigger are being left alone.
