    Is there a list (pref.with images) on reef safe fish?

    Hmmm thats an indepth question...but as a general rule Large angels, Butterflies, Triggers out of your commonly kept fish are not regarded as reef safe, however saying that there are individuals in those groups that are reef safish...so its not as easy as saying this and this fish is reef safe or this and this group of fish is reef safe.

    Meneer I take it that when referring to "reefsafe" you mean "will not eat corals".

    That is as Kunhardt mentioned a bit more tricky. You also need to look at the setup as a biotype ie , which corals belong together , which fish etc etc.

    ya i think u get a chart like that on Liveaquaria, and if u use it on the site u can move the cursor along with it and line up what is compatible with what. Check out that site its great for getting an idea of what fish are out there and they give u great write ups on each fish.

    Here is another link to a reef safe list of fish
