    I had one for a long time. He was fine, just stated in a section and picked at the rocks. BUT, I also had a friend who had one that would capture and eat fish. Like most things in this hobby it is a risk, but they sure are cool.

    I'm glad you decided against it. They also eat feather dusters and other sessile organisms. My guess is that they would also attempt steal any food given to corals.
