I have a panther grouper with a pink-tailed triggerfish, a clown triggerfish, a picasso triggerfish, and a yellow tang and they get along fine. I have them in a 30 gallon tank and they hardly ever fight. I love mine so you should to!

    I had a panther grouper with a blue trigger and he has bit all the top fin off and I had to pull it out to die rather than let him eat it as he kept rolling on top of it shame in a 33 gallon tank.

    Great News... However they are all huge fish (15 to 50 inches). You should encompass the idea of setting up a 200 gallon tank... minimum... (no joke). Man would they ever be happy!

    Do yourself a favor and get a much larger tank.  These fish will get very large.  They may not be fighting but they will not be able to be maintained for long.

When I was scuba diving, I saw one of these moray eels and it was close to 6 feet! They are one big eel.

    They are amazing eels.  Many in popular dive areas will see divers as a great source to get food.  And will take food right from divers.

I saw one of these beautiful little while guys snorkeling today. I live in northern N.S.W, but they are along most of the Australian east coast. Extremely shy fish.

Hi, I found one of these at thatpetplace.com for $29.99 and thought it looked cool but I have never had a saltwater aquarium. I was thinking about trying to breed them by buying 3(it would also get me free shiping) and maybe turn the water brakish or something to incourage breeding. How big of a tank would I need to do this and would it also be a good idea to change the decor in the tank as the water becomes less salty?

    Are you looking at Freshwater Lionfish or the shortfin lionfish selected?  These are not the best fish to start with when doing a saltwater tank.  They can deliver an inexperienced fishkeeper a nasty sting.  To do what you are talking about you would need atleast a 100 gallon tank and I am not understanding why you would reduce the salinity.  But I may be confused on which lionfish you are talking about.

I just purchased a 2'ft brackish water Marble Moray Eel. What is the best food for it and the best time to feed it?

    I have always used jumbo krill and introduce it with tongs right infront of their face.

how lucky can you be? I caught a gorgeous gussy at The Heads Knysna (month January 2007). No problem with teaching it to eat. Also a handnet and snorkel and goggles. Thank you. EUGENE

I have one that hosts a Hatian pink tipped anenome (which is very rare that any clown would host that type) and she is just so fun to watch. She even feeds her anenome host. She is a little territorial toward other fish expecially if they go near her host, not too bad though. I would recommend adding one to your tank!

i think people should buy butterflyfish at an adult size such as copperband falculas, collareds, and raccoons. at that size they will be easyer to keep due to their being darker in colour, fatter, tuffer, easier to feed, and bigger to look at.

I just bought my first emperor angelfish today. Love it ..One question for whoever reads this, is it a sideways swimmer, cause I'm noticing lots of side swimming in her rather than up straight swimming. Please someone tell me it normal or should I take her back?
