    I have had good luck with this species over the years. I agree that plenty of live rock is helpful. My current specimen is in a 65 and has become more aggressive with time, even showing aggressiveness to a pair of clowns that “owned” the last tank they were in, so pick robust tank mates. I have a few mushrooms in the tank that this specimen leaves alone, but he destroyed some frags of pulsing Xenia I tried to start in the tank.

      Your experience with increasing aggressiveness in this species reminds me that I left an important point out of my post: In a community of peaceful to moderately aggressive fishes, it’s usually best to add a coral beauty last. Thanks as always for your insights, Matt!
