On the evansi, they'll eat big chunks of food. I used raw frozen scallops and shrimp. It worked well for me with randalls and evansi. I trained them in QT which made it easier.

I don't buy you have to feed that tiny food to small/mid sized anthias.......they have huge mouths for their size. It's just a matter of training.
Thanks Ed.
The new anthias went into the display with the other anthias. The smaller ones (which I should never have bought) have already died. They were about an inch long.. they would only eat the smallest particles. My larger ones eat anything including flake and pellets.. how big were the evansis you were working with? I assumed that adding new anthias to established ones would actually help them emulate the behavior of the established fish and get them eating quickly..

One question: why have you started to add a watermark to your photos?
Hey Bulent, thanks! unfortunately I am terrible at scientific names for corals and ID ing in general.
I started adding a watermark because I am trying to have a presence on Facebook- locally- to promote by business more. I do aquarium maintenance full time - fresh and salt- and because Facebook is so public and to associate my photos with me and my business, I just figured I’d start ‘owning’ my photos..
I want to begin detailing my maintenance practices and showing some of the other tanks I take care of.. so it’s just a way of branding my photos, I suppose..
