Trying to get a good picture of that random Anemone and he just floats in the way, gets photo taken, floats away again

I miss my filefish but I lost too many corals (and a very expensive RFA) to him. It's a shame because he was a wonderful fish, could swim backwards, was very curious and basically reminded my of a hummingbird each time he circled around an aiptasia or a coral piece before eating it.

You add toadstools, Sinularia or Brassica (cabbage) soft corals, they're pretty noxious and are generally not eaten by anything other than flatworms or nudibranchs.

Blue Ridge what? If you're talking about the hard coral, Blue Ridge is a fire coral, Heliopora.

I wouldn't trust them with mushrooms. If you do put a mushroom in there, I would try cheap ones.

Hermits are fine, snails get nailed (literally picked up and spat against glass)

Thinking I might give Money Cowries and Urchin a go, too small for sea hare

Avoid the sea hare - but I think an urchin should be okay. The tuxedo ones are very hardworking, but they'll eat macro too. Just supplement them with a strip of Nori/seaweed once/twice a week, just to avoid starvation. If there's enough algae, it shouldn't be a problem, but better to be safe than sorry.

Well with any luck the Urchin will prefer C Prolifera over my reds.....

The way you worded it i thought you're shutting down the tank and selling corals for £20 lol!
You can sometimes get real bargains/rob from people on local facebook sale pages., there's a dude selling a massive bubble tip anemone near me for a fiver!!

I'll be setting up a little frag tank and buying corals from local facebook sales i think lol!
