    Very nice. Goldflakes and Bandits are some of my favorites.

    I am intrigued ... Goldflakes in a tank full of zoanthids!

    Everyone keeps telling us that zoas are like candy for pomacanthids - I'm very, very interested to hear how you get on with these beauties!

    I am too! Wife liked them and couldn't pass them up! It's a full mixed reef so we shall see. I'm most afraid for my scoly. I may rehome it just in case. I'm trying to keep them well fed and they are voracious!

    A few shots of my rock beauty. This little fish has proven to be rather coral safe thus far. Chalice corals are the only thing she has eaten in my tank. She/he is a very slow grower. I think she has grown maybe an inch in the year I have had her.

    So I have a question about Peppermint Angelfish...I know they can be expensive, but....What do they eat and how aggressive are they? Could they coexist in a reef tank with invertebrates and other peaceful fish?

    That one's a blue-ring angel - Pomacanthus annularis.

    I would guess that peppermint angels are a tad less likely to devour corals than some others, as they might not encounter some of our corals down where they live. I'm not sure that anyone on Reef2Reef has any practical experience with them, though. They're _that_ kind of expensive.

    That's a beauty! It's always been my favorite I'd love to have but only have a 150gal and afraid of what corals it would eat. I went with a pair of goldflakes and man they like fleshy lps but when I upgrade to a 3-400gal I'll definitely be getting one!

    Thank you so much for the information! You've answered all of my questions! But "_that_" kind of expensive is a bit concerning...... That's okay though!! I'm determined! :) I really appreciate the help!!!
