    zero, just remeber that they are aggressive when larger (doesnt take them long to grow) will eat almost any shrimp or crab you have (plus some other things a reef tank might have) and needs a tank thats atleast 200l with very good filtration as they can produce alot of waste.

    great fish if you have the set up for it :)

    not sure zero, personally i choose LS 180 degrres opposite to that. i research and decide which LS i think will be best for my tank, not that which would be worst. if i have the environment for a certain LS then i go for it, if i dont and i really want that creatchure, then i create the conditions for it, within my limited knowledge.

    i dont mean what is worse. Currently i have a toby, nice little fish, full of character, but he is slowly eating away nice corals.

    the way you think are 110% correct.

    the toby was an inpulse buy, only finding out later how dangerous they are.

    Yeah its not aggressive at all now, I've had it for 18months and its only grown about 5mm-1cm. So I don't know about the high growth rate but mine is still small and plesant. Does go after a hermit ever now and then.

    Dallas, its still here gimme a shout.
