Anyone have experience with this fish?

Yes. He immediately ate all the mushrooms I had which I didn't really mind but then he turned on something else. I forget if it was zoas or some LPS. Either way, he wasn't stopping with just mushrooms and he went back to the store.

mine was a zoa/paly mower. Could clear a plug in nothing flat!

I've had mine for over 8 years now. Never touched a coral or zoa/pally.

Although he has gotten too large for me now and soon will be on display in a local aquarium, I'm hoping. If I can get him out.

I just added one. Only had it for about a week so it's too soon to say but from my research it sounds like if you keep them well fed they'll leave your coral alone.

I had one that I got from another reefer. Really He was too big for my tank. and after a week he was skittish so he went to Vivid.

I hear they do better in pairs. I'm looking for another one for my tank

I've had one for 2 years now with no problem. Now orange spot rabitttfish, that's a different story. He's a beautiful fish but he loves dem leathers. Hasn't killed them, just keps them trimmed.

My doliatus hasn't touched anything in my tank he wasn't supposed to.

that's a 2 line rabbit and I had a couple of those at different times until they got too big (they grow fast). These I've had no problems with and they mow through calerpa.

I have had mine for ~2 months. So far so good... knocking on wood.

He is competing with my yellow tang that is a good 30% larger than him.

Beautiful fish. Very aware, and has that galactic haze of a puffer in his eyes.

Mine ate zoas and mowed down an 8" tall toadstool.
