Yes, we have both of them in our 120 and they get along. The Fu Man Chu is slower to hunt so you have to distract the dwarf sometimes during feeding times.

Ok Awesome. Would a fu man chu be ok with a ray since they lay low?

I would think they would fight over food, but who are you saying lays low? Our rays both lay low but the fu man chu spend most of his time low as well.

Just because enough food is being put into the tank doesn't mean the fu man chu is going to get it. If we don't play defense with the fuzzy dwarf he would eat everything we put in there for the 3 scorpian fish. The fu man chu is one of my favorite fish but they take some work to get eating.

From my experience a dwarf will eat anything√ā¬†LOL...maybe its just ours, hes a pig.

I would put him in the tank with the dwarf to start otherwise your gonna spend all this time getting him comfertable enough to eat and then your gonna move him and freak him out and have to start all over again. Are you looking to get one locale or ordering online?

I have been told they don't ship well so a lot of the stores won't carry them. We got ours of another member here and they had him for like 6 months so we were lucky that way. What size tank are the two lions and the ray going to be in?

They will be in a 120, With rocks A really cool way that maximizes room without a suspended reef. Have you seen Bannshy's tank?

I think I have seen pictures, you should come see out 120 with them in it sometimes too. Lots of overhangs and stuff for the lions to chill out on.
