    Multi colored file fish ?

    They are beautiful fish, and more active than you might think. I have not found them to be not very commonly available, though they aren't a rare fish.

    New Moray

    you asked several posts ago how much to feed. Smaller eels are growing so I would offer food daily, but not too much at a time. With juvie fishes, frequent, smaller feedings are advisable, IMO.

    Can I put a yellow tang and a purple tang together?

    I think the "pink color clownfish" you are referring to is a plastic algae clip. :)

    What would you stock?

    LaMarck's angel is a kind of swallowtail angel (as is Bellus angel). Your food selections sounds good.

    Zebra Moray Question

    Mine occasionally went on a hunger strike in the 12+ years I had him, but not often. He ate much less than the somewhat smaller Brazilian dragon moray. The BDM out-ate the zebra at least 5:1. The zebra was not nearly as food aggressive. Also, slower to find food on a feeding stick, sometimes...

    So I have this fish....

    +1 on the pistol shrimp/goby and decorator crab suggestions! I have a high fin redbanded goby and tiger pistol shrimp in a 12 gallon nano cube, and they are fascinating to watch. You also might consider a pearl headed jawfish.

    Zebra Moray Question

    Zebra morays are very docile, and I don't forsee a problem. I kept a zebra moray and a Brazilian dragon moray together for several years in a 210 with no issues.

    Beauty of a puffer at LFS...quick advice on tankmates

    I think I'm going to pass on the pellets and feed meaty foods, frozen cubes, gel - stuff that will go down easy!

    What would you stock?

    I forgot you have corals - the LaMarck is pretty reef safe, but the other angels have risk of picking at them.

    What would you stock?

    LaMarck are the hardiest of the swallowtail angels, IMO, and have a subtle beauty. I had one for many years in a 4 foot tank and it seemed fine. Mine was more of a picker than a sprinter, and seemed to do very well. I'd recommend a single LaMarck angel, as long as someone else with LaMarck...

    Beauty of a puffer at LFS...quick advice on tankmates

    I'm so sorry about your puffer, and will be very careful in the future with pellets.

    New Moray

    DD should be able to tell you exactly what they were feeding, and the size. The eel may be okay with small ghost shrimp, some eels will tear them apart first. You could also try offering appropriate sized pieces of raw table shrimp, squid, clam. As suggested, you could try feeding at night...

    clown trigger?

    When I was young, we had a saltwater fish store in NJ that had a large, wall-built display tank to house an adult, single clown trigger. The tank was big (like a smaller public aquarium display) and the trigger was large, but probably more like 14-15" rather than 19". It was their logo too...

    New Moray

    +1 on Matt's post. Also, make sure you don't have anything in the tank that could eat it, and be sure the tank is covered pretty well. I don't have any experience with skeletors and haven't heard about them leaving their tanks, but early on is a time I think an eel might take off if not yet...
