    Notes:
    Koran Angel

    He is eating very well, unfortunately he is starting to get big, and as i recently downgraded my tank size, he has to go. He is just starting to change into adult colours.

    I know they are known to eat SPS and other corals, however i have not once had an issue with this. Perhaps once he changes colours he will start.

    Please be aware of what the requirements are to keep this fish.

    Decorated Rabbit Fish

    Eating very well, he is exceptionally greedy with nori (he will eat out of your hand :thumbup:).

    PLEASE BE AWARE, he WILL eat your zoas and mushrooms (from experience), i have a leather coral which he hasn't touched, as well as xenia, but he wiped out my zoas and mushrooms in 24 hrs. Also hasnt touched any sps corals.

    Yeah, it is quite unfortunate, and he is labeled in the "with caution" category, suppose he just has a fancy for them. Not sure what other members experiences are with this fish.

    I had various corals in the tank, softies, lps, and sps. Out of everything it only went for the zoas and mushrooms, it wasnt interested in any other corals. It ate the corals when i first added the fish over 6 months ago, but since then it hasnt touched any of my other corals.

    I also have a nice decorated rabbitfish, same size that is in the naughty tank. Ate mushrooms. Seems to be an issue with them.

    Not to de-rail this thread, but I would assume when it comes to the rabbit fish, having poisonous spines, they would need to "re-fuel" the poison and again, I would assume that they get this done by eating zoa's which contain palytoxin... @dallasg @RiaanP?

    Zoas aren't the only creatures that produce toxins. fish are pretty capable of producing their own, so the rabbit fish doesn't need to eat corals to 'recharge'.

    Agree totally with @459b, many vertebrates having glands that produce toxins of their own.
