    Hybrid dwarf angelfish doing the mating dance

    Nice! Just to be clear, lots of reef fish can hybridize and then produce fertile offspring, the whole different species can't reproduce and produce fertile offspring isn't true with most fish, especially dwarf angelfish. Frank and RCT has proven this.

    Quoyi parrotfish reef safe?
