    Hahaha that take him out is not as easy as you make it sound! I had a orchid dottyback that was aggressive and I needed to remove all the liverock before I could catch it!

    I see they are semi aggressive, do you guys ever came across one that is really aggressive? Coz I got a pretty peaceful tank at the moment and would like to try and keep it that way

    i have 1 in my tank and he is chilled, all my others have been fine towards other fish species

    tangs generally fight with tangs, but every fish is different, i have an agro CBB
