She's the reason I have saltwater tanks. If I hadn't met her I'd still be stuck in the stone age with freshwater :lol:

I don't target feed them often. I have 3 colonies plus dozens of scattered babies so it's too much work to target feed them all. I just dump in loads of filter feeder foods and baby brine shrimp every day. The colonies get target fed like once a week and the babies have to fend for themselves.

I just got a huge bag of live brine over the weekend and I'm going out of town tomorrow. Not sure I can dump a whole bunch in my tank and have problems or what.

They would all get sucked into the filter. You fish can all go the weekend without food. And the mandarin will find enough pods for just those couple days.

Dendros usually run about $60 per polyp

Lol you took too long! He did have some really nice stuff. My mom pointed out some rasta zoas that I've been wanting for a while and the guy said he's selling them $35 per polyp so I may get one next time I'm there. The store is A LOT smaller than I thought it would be though.

Normally I hate damsels, but I love my Talbot's. They're not super aggressive and they're soooo pretty!

Did a quick trimming and cleaning. The titan had a bunch of hair algae growing in it, so I kept a couple good pieces and threw the rest in another tank for my longspine urchin. I trimmed enough algae to last my urchin at least a month!

Your angler is sick! How big will he get? Looking into getting one but not till after I set up my shallow, Has he been pretty easy to keep? seems like he has special needs like a dwarf lion in the ways of feeding right?

This species will get about 10-12 inches. Basically a football :lol: He's easy for me, but easy is a very subjective term. I don't mind feeding live food and the large water changes I have to do on this tank, but other people might find those things annoying. But yeah anglers are pretty easy to keep as long as you pay attention to their needs. Feeding is indeed similar to a dwarf lion. Anglers will only eat live food when you get them so they need to be trained onto frozen. Some refuse dead foods no matter how much you try, but mine took to frozen after the first few tries. I think it helped that he was a baby because baby animals are more open to trying new things than adults are.
