    Can any of the sponsors help me out here? Looking for a Coris wrasse to take out some Zoanthus eating Nudis...

    Any help would be great!

    Also, would the Yellow Coris get along with a six line?

    I dont think you are going to come right here dude. Ive just checked the last 10 threads that were started in this request forum and only one of them had a response from a sponsor. Thats 10% of threads. Unless the sponsors dont post here but rather PM.

    I thought all the sponsors got sent an email after you post a thread? I never get any PM's from the sponsors?

    Oh well... Spoke to Idol and Dorry Pets, they don't have...

    If anyone sees a Banana Wrasse or a Yellow Coris Wrasse, please let me know.

    from my experience with buying a wrasse (fish for that matter) to control pests in the tank it doesnt work...I would never suggest to someone to buy a fish for the sole purpose of hopefully getting rid of unwanted creatures in your tank...but thats just me. Maybe you will get lucky. Good luck dude.

    Holy cow! It was double that!

    @Kunhardt - Generally, I'd agree with that, but I have come to the decision that I'd really prefer a natural solution to the issues I've been having. Like getting the Harlequin Shrimp to sort out my starfish problem. Which has worked really well for me.

    I'd prefer to find a natural solution, than have to chemically remove bugs and stuff. I don't like the idea of dipping corals, no matter how well the dips work, but I had to as a last resort.

    A Natural solution, for me, is the better of the 2 evils. Besides, Yellow Coris or Banana Wrasses are nice! I've wanted one for a while.

    Im from durbs and must say that the tanks at Hillfox look dodgy - My top three marine petshops in no particular order for neatness and friendliness is Dorry Pets - Wild On Pets - Jungle Aquatics and the one in Lifestyle Garden center. When ever I go to Joburgh - I drive hundreds of Km looking at different petshops but in the future I will narrow it down to a few.

    What gets me about Hillfox is the fish they bring in such as butterflies which almost never survive more than a week due to their feeding requirements. And then they tell you something like thye fed them 20min ago so they wont eat now when u wanna see if they are eating. Case in point being the bennets butterfly i bought there before finding out that they are on the list of fish who have like a 1% survival rate in aquaria, and yet they bring in more
