    MASA members experiences with naughty fish.
    Please list the fish and the coral it ate.

    I know individuals are different, some are model citizens but there are always a black sheep in the family. Let us use this thread as a naming and shaming on the black sheep family members. Plus what they destroyed.

    Blueback damsel. Ate all my hermits, shrimps and snails. Only cuc i can keep in the tank is a long spine urchin and a few stomatellas (which are safe-ish cause they only come out at night).

    Domino damsel - added before I knew about damsels
    Terrorised the entire tank as it grew bigger, killed a fire goby - shook him like a dog would shake prey
    He got sumped and then relocated with a serious warning attached

    Flame angel, nipped sps corals and clam, but he seems to have reformed and is still in the tank

    Coris formosa attacked every floating bag I put in the tank so could never add any other fish to the tank so I had to find him another home.
