    Just noticed 2 days a go that my Bangaii male was carrying:biggrin: Purchased 2 from clowning about less than a month ago. Really shocked because I just started my tank less than 3 months ago but it was an existing setup, which was slightly neglected. Also found some other jelly like eggs in the sump not sure what that's about.

    Just a little worried that the lime green wrasse will have a go at the babies. The wrasse I have is like the banana wrasse but green and reef safe. What do you guys suggest?

    Tank is 1.5m x 700mm x 700mm

    :biggrin:

    Add a diadema for the young to hide in.

    Hi
    Thanks for the responses. I noticed my heading was a bit confusing, mainly for protecting the babies.
    Diadema - are you talking about the black sea urchins, and will one suffice?
