This is probably the  most asked question in the world I know but I got to ask it ,
Been trying to think of what I can have that will be ok with what I got .
Percy is a pearlscale butterfly fish
Doug is a melanurus wrasse
Henry is a conch
So after wrecking my brains and searching the web what you think guys
Is it a no I can't have one or got any ideas that will work .

Well so far so good with the  cuc,they still intact and seem ok ,
Not all wrasse are viscous to cuc members it depends on the temperament of the individual wrasse itself,
I was told and done quite a bit of looking that Doug (my melanurus  wrasse ) might be a problem with the snails and the hermit , it was a case of trial and error to see if he would pester and eat them also Percy (pearlscale butterfly fish ) might be tempted to,
Seems so far I've been lucky all seems to be good in the tank so will leave it another week and if still ok probably get another couple of snails and another hermit ,then wait see what happens.
Don't want to push it to far into temptation if that's ok after that then I'll leave it like that.
I did find out that if you don't mix the snails and stick to the same species they less likely to create a problem and get eaten ,
Point to remember if that's true but start one or two at a time .
Slow and patient is the key I think , as with most of the marine hobby ,

Yeah apparently so.  I've seen them throw their goop out into the tank in the early morning and I've now started spotting babies...

I've sent a couple to @Marine-Newbie  this week and found a really ickle baby today...

Not sure why they are given this is my first time reef keeping and the tank is only 6 months old... Sorry I can't offer any advice!

Had some spawning in early stages and have seen some babies, but think they get eaten as I don’t get any that get to decent enough size. Guess size matters
