    Interesting. I've read a few care sheets now - yes they seem to suggest they pair off and unless you have a massive set-up are difficult to keep in groups due to aggression. I obviously based my assumption on swimming past a big group of them hanging around a reef. Perhaps not because they like each other that much

    I would love to get a pair of them and see if I could get them to breed, but it's just too hard to pair them up since it's hard to determine the sex at a younger age. I was unable to see the vents on mine to see if it was male or female.

    I'm definitely getting another one. I will probably wait until next week.

    Bangaiis truly do need hiding spots in the rocks. I noticed a very positive improvement in their behaviour after I had done that. You might want to re-scape your rocks to provide a big enough hiding spot for a adult to hide in as well. That is why most people to suggest a 30 gallon or larger tank for them
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I look forward to the photos. I've read you should try to get tank bred specimens as their populations are devastated by harvesting for the pet trade in the wild.

    I have two cave-like areas that had more than enough room for it. If that's not enough, I've got some thinking to do. I feel like my rockwork is as good as I am able to get it. Might have to buy new rock and get creative.

    I have no idea if it was tank raised or wild. I DO know that there is a breeder that lives close to me. I think I'm going to get one from him. The only downside is his prices are up there.

    If you can not get tank bred fish, I always suggest MCA certified vendors as a very good second option.

    Seeing as how bangiis are sooooooooooo easy to breed, you should be able to find some tank bred ones. Mine spawn about every 2 months and have for about 2 years

    I have never heard of an MCA certification. I will definitely look into that.

    I heard that they are the Guppies of saltwater!

    Thanks, Cliff!

    The below link will help

    All the non-tank bred fish I now buy are MCA certified. I like to support the process when ever I can

    Thank you, Cliff. I will check that site out.

    My Starburst Polyps seem to be doing fine. I read that they need to be in moderate to high flow zones. Here is a video of mine. Too much flow?

    So, I walked in today and noticed that my water was extremely clear. Using RO/DI water has really helped clean things up. I wonder how long until this green algae goes away?
