    Probably not, and if you got corals, the pomy will most likely chow them.

    I think its Pomacanthus
    You find alot of different spieces under it
    and if mikes is a semi then its a Pomacanthus semicirculatus

    How big is the tank?
    The fish can be kept together. What you got to do is rearrange the aquascaping and then add the new fish.
    This way, the Coral Beauty will be confused and will have to seek new terrortory.
    This is what I have done to keep multiple Angels aswell as Surgeons and Tangs together in harmony.
    Another thing you might want to consider is to sump the Semi for a week or two and let him get use to the new water parameters and regain his strength before introducing him to the DT so he will be able to face the CB should the be any aggression.

    You just guess that one Grant or do you know for a fact? Cause if its a Koran its not reef safe and you should be worried about your corals and invertibrates not so much with it fighting with the Coral Beauty :razz:
