    Is it okay if I have an Orchid DottyBack in (P. fridmani) in a 24g tank with 10-12 BTA's? I am almost a little worried the orchid dottyback may accidentally swim into one of the anemones, and be cooked. Is this an issue? I currently have an orchid dottyback in my 33g tank, though it is getting beat on by my six line wrasse. Easy to catch him, so hoping it is okay I add him to my 24g when I get it moved in.

    I just introduced a sixline and strawberry dottyback into my red sea max a few weeks ago. The dottyback stays pretty much away from the bta's, but the dumb sixline thought it was a clownfish. Suffice to say I only have the dottyback and pair of ocellaris now. :(

    The 24g should be fine,,even with anemones :)

    Thanks Gresh, I wasn't sure about whether or not I should be concerned about putting the Orchid Dottyback in there. I'll give it a go, and leave the rest to the wind (mostly the fish actually, lol). Would be an expensive meal if things went awry :D
