      They definitely with attach your other fish. Sorry to say UT will even kill a few of them also. I didn't realize this until it was to late for a few ofy fish. Every Fish in my tank is a docile fish and I even got him a couple of other fish to go with him and he still killed them. Also I've noticed on all the fish that I have left in my tank their tail fins and their toxins have been chewed down I don't recommend these fish I don't care what your pet store says or what they say over there. So they won't bother any other fish as long as you get the same kind of fish with them that's not true so be very careful

      Larry, I've passed your request along.

      Is there any possibility of getting accesse to Dr Paul Whitby's e.mail to be able to get a photo of the original aquascaping live rock 5:3 set up in the Coral Magasine May/June 2017, page 40, 3rd. photo from top (Same tank, two bommie structure following the 5:3 ratio) Thank you for your quick reply, Larry Spak
    • Map Son says:

      No, you did not read carefully: Every “dory-fish” purchased at a big box pet store, local fish store, or online will be harvested from a reef in a data-deficient fishery about which there are significant anecdotal concerns. Christiane Schmidt is known in Germany as a big liar. Check yourself at the IUCN Red List, where Paracanthus Status is "least concern", that is the best available Status there. Actually, Christiane Schmidt says, yes, Paracanthurus is locally endangered in Indonesia, due to the fact, that nobody can proof this. And yes, Christiane Schmidt has of course more and localy finer data than the IUCN.

      I love this explanation of your design goals and solutions appropriate to the biotope. I accidentally went in that direction in the late 90s with a tank with a lot of mulm, and raised wild discus, tetras, cool catfish, with no problem.I had limited light, with poor options at the time, and used found wood and blackwater tonic as a poor and expensive attempt to keep.the water dark. Discus keepers were horrified, with their bare tanks, but mine bred effusively. Your article inspires me to try actual dirted tanks, sustainable tannin sources, and enough light to grow some weeds. Thanks.
