He just so full of personality. When I’m near the tank he comes up to me and dose a little food beging. I feed him 1-2 large omega one sinking pellets a day one in the morning and or at night. Along with a block of frozen carnivorous diet every 2 days that he shares with my Falco Hawkfish, the two get along quite well however when I first added the Falco my Blood Redfire shrimp I named Sam began to hide more within a week he molted for the first time since I got him and two days later he was back to his old self eating outta my hand and he actually began to clean the Falco and the Falco I named Duke let’s Sam clean him. My emerald Crab keeps Duke in check I think, think he inserted a fear of claws however has not hurt Duke. Since I got Duke some of the white on his body has gained some more red spots and he seems to be getting more patterns. Sam on the other hand only comes into the open when I’m around. I recently added two clowns, 10 gallon nano well actually 11.5 gallons if you count my refugium that I grow cheato and pods along with rotifers in, 1 turbo and 4 hermits along with a Falco and of course a blood red fire shrimp and of course a emerald crab, the refugium serves as my waste exporter along with quite possibly helping to oxidate my tank and to remove some ammonia I do got 20lbs of live rock along with 20lbs of live sand, however the base rock probably needs 4 more months before it’s completely live rock however it is getting a nice amount of coralline algae and I’m thinking of getting a bubble tip anemone around June or July. A unexpected pro of my Falco Hawkfish is he seems to be destroying my bristle worm population but that might be more con than pro considering they are useful to an extent. I’m 3 months in on this tank and I’m honestly loving my first saltwater tank however I’m probably pushing my boiload a little but I do weekly water changes or a water change every 3.5 days If i feel it needed like seeing algae growth that shouldn’t be happening because my cheato should be starving it.
