The pattern i seek is one that would give us a greater understanding of what these animals need. Water quality is the main issue to address but without total precision kits i feel i may run a blank.
This will lead to trials with my own stock once i get a new tank!

I would not have another nem in a tank with SPS or LPS corals, as when my streams used to stop working (due to stomatela snails or calcium build up or mechanical failure), the change of water flow in the tank would often make them go for a walk. Whilst on their walk, they could smoke some corals and this is the main reason why I would not have another in an SPS/LPS reef.
I will likely set up a dedicated clown and nem tank in the future though.

Then about 2 years ago I had a 12" blue carpet but moved that on after I saw it sting and eat a mandarin and a 4" foxface in the same week
Never had a problem actually keeping them though
I suggest a change of plan... Let the wookie win

Added it to the aquarium before any corals to let it settle in the sand bed.
After a few weeks added a couple of perc clowns.
Beautiful creature and has never moved since its introduction.
One of my best additions to the tank and is now about 14 inches i diameter..

It's foot is well wedged into a cave in the rockwork and at night it moves itself into the cave. As soon as the actinics come on it starts to come back out until is is something like 12 - 14" in diameter.
The tank parameters have been pretty stable since the tank was setup - however I did have a 52 hour power outage which sent PO4 and nitrates upwards for a week or two until I got them back under control. During that period ALK dropped as well (can't remember where to I am afraid). The tank temp swings about 2 degrees during the summer months and I run with the balling lite method, so apart from during the above problems alk, mag and ca have been stable. I should probably add that the tank has always been run on a ULNS system, started with FM and then moved to Zeo. I feel my tank is leaning towards heavily stocked, but that's just my feelings, others may disagree.
I do feed it, but probably only about once a month or so, and then it is just with one lance fish.
This is a fairly old picture of it.
