I have had one for about 6 months. I am not sure but he may have eaten my two Scarlet Cleaner Shrimp. I am not convinced though because the Caribbean cleaner Shrimp and Coral Banded Shrimp are fine. Otherwise, nothing unusual to report. He sure does not bother the corals! And, he is beautiful.

I bought one and had it in my zoanthid tank for about a year. I have since moved him to my 240 softy tank. Great fish.

I also have had one in a reef for close to a year. Gets along with all tankmates including 2 cleaner shrimp. Dives into the same spot in sandbed same time every night like clock work.
