    Angler with a Leaf Fish??

    Does anyone know if you can keep both an Angler and a Leaf fish in the same tank? Obviously they would have to be the same size. But considering both don't really move........... I don't see that much of a problem. But I don't know if these two types of fish would fight. Thanks

    Will a Rainbow urchin eat Coraline Algae?

    I have had my tank for years, and I like all the Coraline algae that has grown, so I don't want it eaten. Will a Rainbow urchin eat the Coraline off the rock? I know some urchins do, and if so which urchin will leave my Coraline algae alone.
