    They are usually safe with fish, but their eyesight is terrible, so when there is food in the water anybody can get bitten.

    They are substantially less safe with inverts, though if they are well fed will not hunt as actively.

    Mine came as a package deal with the tank. As I add coral it's making me more skeptical about keeping them in a reef. It likes to prop itself up on anything that will hold him, like power heads, heater, temp probe etc... I'm hoping that this will be my leverage to get an even bigger tank.

    They don't purposely move rocks too much, but just moving around they may knock unstable rocks over.
