Don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful fish. Just rarely seen in nano tanks. Take good care of them. 

Picked up some Nutramar Ova and this new frozen food I've never seen before.  I feel like if (BIG if) I can get them eating we've got a great shot, especially since I spend 50 hours a week next to the tank and am not afraid to do several small feedings a day.

Also got my fuge going tonight.  @inTank Fuge basket, $20 amazon grow light and chaeto from a local reefer.  Have it set to run from 11:30 pm to 7am ATM, hoping to minimize my daily pH swings. 

 

Note:  Much softer light than appears in the picture

Thanks, she is a great dog.  Only issue we have with her is she absolutely destroys the yard where she likes to run by the fence.  

Yeah I hear that..my dog has worn a path in my yard as well. I tried to plant grass but I'm not good at lawn care lol

Really pleased with the progress these guys are making.  This is video of a Nutramar Ova feeding.    

 

Next time I'll turn off my computer monitors and mute the television 😊

Beautiful fish! How many times are you managing to feed at the moment?

They've only been in the tank for 24 hrs.  I'm going to try 4-5 small feedings a day for now.  I would live to eventually get them eating small pellets or flake and cut back to 2x a day.

Sorry, missed that. Looking forward to seeing them settle in

Beautiful tank, my friend has some if the same anthias and they are stunning in person. Good luck with them!

Where did you manage to find the nutramar ova? I’ve been looking everywhere. Thanks!

I found it at a LFS here in Louisville.  Everything in my tank goes nuts for the stuff!

If you get the chance, stock up on it then because no where else has it! I've been looking for months and I work at a fish store - no one is able to get it. Once again, beautiful fish 🙂

I don't mind shipping you some if they still have next time I'm in.  Don't go there very often, but maybe I'll check with you when I do.

Thanks Deb...me too.  One eats like an absolute pig and gets less picky by the day.  Even caught him eating a couple of small flakes the other day.  The other is still a little more reserved and hid in the rockwork during the morning feeding.
