    thats odd John.... they are know to hang in acro's... but I've never seen or read anything about them eating the polyps.  I'll post this on a few other boards and see what comes of it.

    actually,I knew the risk as I always study before I buy and CLOWN GOBY's will sometimes pick at polyps.
    I am hoping the freak will start eating mysis and I need to buy some of that brine shrimp and soak it in SELCON as brine is smaller and he might take that. I seen yours eating MYSIS so I'm suprized mine won't? It is just that I don't have to many SPS and that free frag is not happy with all the attention the YG is giving it. Funny, he won't touch the other SPS but just that one? do you have any brine or selcon Ivan? :P

    I don't think Selcon's gonna attract him that much.. try garlic soaked.. it is an enhancer.

    Too bad, cuz I would like one of those dudes, but not if they are going to do that!

    yeh I'm hoping it stops. apperently if you have a few good sized collonies it's not a problem.I read the links IVAN left me and it seems in most cases after they settle down they will take food. I just talked to JEFF and he said his is eating prepared food now. he is a cute guy.
