I had a pic of the clown in the BTA, but it wasnt in focus and didnt look very good, so I didnt post it. But there is a clown hosting in that thing.

and as for food.. I dont really feed it. it gets food when I feed the fish. Im using a finely blended mix of several types of seafood, cylopeez, flake food, pellet food and some seaweed for good mesure. the problem I'm having is that I dont think it fills the fish up because its to fine.. the corals love it though.. obviously.

I talked to taira-san @ ACO and he told me he adds the Kai-ebi ~ small chum shrimps the used around here when going fishing. Here's a pic of the frozen block I piced up at a local supply and bait store:

cool.. will have to pick some of that up. I need to get the fish some bigger food.. think my tang is starving, no matter how offten I feed them. pellets and the cyclopeez mix just arnt enough for it..

I also go to Union or someplace like that and get the Nori right off the shelf. I got one of those plastic suction chips with a hook on the end and one large, all plastic potato chip clip. Took the hook of the white one and squeezed it into the potato chip clip and waala!!! Giant Nori holder for my vegiterians fish. The green pellets are good too...
Will follow up with pic later...

try twice; see if they eat it and get a little plump...
