I have had this fish for a couple of weeks now and I must say it grows on me the more I look at it and the longer I keep it. It's a kind fish, not disturbing to any corals or fish, eating just about anything I put in the tank, flaskes, pellets and frozen live food.
It does swin about alot and should be given plenty of space as it grows.
