Ok so I recently got a decent sized coral beauty for my 55 gal and he did great for the first day but on the third day he started break out from marine velvet I know how to treat velvet I think but tell me anyways cause I'm not sure. Also he broke out with ick which is easy to take care of but I'm borrowing a 10 gal quarantine tank and how long should I keep him in there and is there other ways to treat marine velvet besides formoulin chemical please help?

We just added a powder blue tang to our tank and our coral angel killed it within three days! It has no trouble with the other fish. I'm a bit apprehensive to add any new fish to our tank in case he kills them. Is this normal?

    What is the size of your tank,I to have experienced this problem and the answer to mine was there wasn't enough space in the tank.

    I'm just guessing that first of all you probably need a bigger tank and possibly should have added the coral beauty last.

The one I got about 3 months ago quickly became my favorite! Coco (afrectionaltely named) is very beautiful, sweet tempered and hasn't touched my corals yet, but to put it lightly, she's not the brightest bulb on the Hanukkah tree lol she decided yesterday to bug my fiddler crab in a tight crevice and wedged herself stuck. When I freed her, she proceeded to do it again! Very pretty and cute fish with a fun personality, but not very bright. Will quickly become a favorite!

Will they get along with watchmen gobys or firefish gobys?

    Should be fine. Every fish has it's own tempermate though.

I've had mine for 5 months. I've also had him in 3 different tanks. My fish was a bit of a soccer hooligan. He wasn't so much dangerous as just annoying to the other fish. But if you have an algae problem, this fish is for you. Very good at algae control, but I wouldn't mix him with docile fish. Easy to keep and adapts quickly. I use him for algae control, that's why I've had him with so many different fish and tanks.

My coral beauty relentlessly picks on my Dragon goby, but he keeps the goby from my Pearly jawfish, so he is okay for now. Nice fish.

Our Coral Beauty was a great addtion to our tank. It is not aggressive towards any tankmates, and hangs out with our Maroon Clown periodically. He readily accepts frozen and flake food. Now, I can't say for a fact that our CB is actually eating Glass Anenomies, but since we added him, they have been gradually disappearing!
