    Anyone has any experience with them? I can get my hands on a 3 inch specimen here.

    I used to keep normal copperbands without trouble, but recently I brought a yellow longnose back to the store because it started muching on my acan colonies.....

    So now I can get this beauty, but no idea how reef safe the marginalis is.

    Experience, anyone?

    Probably the same hit or miss rate as CBF's

    Sure is purdy and looks healthy!

    They are hardier than copperbands, but may or may not nip corals and clams.

    Pulled the trigger. I ordered it and negotiated a 50 % refund from my lfs if I would have to bring it back if he decides to start messing with the corals.
