    The best info anyone can give you here is dont buy any fish without knowing its proper care requirements first.

    Nothing to do with being negative, i have read a lot about them the last few days and I wish everyone would stop buying them so that the LFS's stop importing them and impacting reefs negatively

    i was also keen on buying one but they havent got a good success rate. Did alot of research and 99% of the websites said that they dont do well in aquariums. Here is an interesting article about them. Please read it.
