Four months, no snacks yet. the Blue on the other hand.....
I am guessing you are talking about the juvenile blueface? I never could find a juvenile that didn't destroy coral. No issues with sub adults and adults. They have it backwards. Most angels are great as juveniles but start nibbling as adults, the blueface is the opposite

Nah, the blue/queen hybrid on the left, eats sinularia, picks at the stylo on the right. The juv. in the middle is an annularis

Hey Alton, how is your imperator doing that arrived late in the leaking bag?

And my latest gamble trying to get an adult to accept a large juvenile. I have done an adult with a small juvenile, just not large. The kenyan angels are 5+ inches before turning. I have an LFS that loves me when trying something that doesn't work out. Like having too many regal angels or a large blue face or adult imp that doesn't fit.

I hope it works, would be awesome to have a mated pair! I have only seen that once I think in an older Coral magazine where a restaurant owner had two in a 20K gallon display.

The imperator is my favorite fish. It's my profile picture, though most don't recognize it, and was my prize possession in my last tank. Current tank is way too small, bit my next tank will be much larger just to accommodate a new imperator.
