Doing well. A little shy but no one is bothering him and I see him eating during feeding times.

If I’m going to keep him long term - I will need a larger aquarium!

Yes. I’ve had a couple - Swallowtail Angel and a copperband.

Quickly pulled out the fish trap and re-homed!
I think I should buy that trap to have! Seems like a good idea in the future if I ever wanted to experiment with reef safe with caution fish.

The swallowtail angel wasn’t reef safe? Can you please share what it picked at? :)

The female swallowtail developed a taste for my torches! Caught her quickly and gave away for free with full disclosure.

Get the fish trap - otherwise you are going to damage your rockscape and corals catching fish with a net. Amazing how effective they are! My fish are so used to me feeding them through the trap that they will swim into the fish trap when I put in the aquarium (even before I put any food in).

Had the male & female swallowtails for about a year and then one day I noticed the torches looking ragged. Watched the torches closely and to my surprise the female swallowtail was eating the torch!

Why didn’t I find this thread sooner! That tank is baller! I’ve got a Reefer 350 so a little smaller than yours. You got me interested in a Co2 scrubber as well!
