Some people make their own food using a blender and fresh seafood from the market. I'm planning on blending some in the next week or two. You can do some searches here for more info. I think Mr X does this too. It simplifies all the choices that way.

Awesome, I now have a shopping list between all the information from you guys, and now also the food I need to use and learn about. So much out there I had no clue where to begin, now I do woohoo Thank you

So I will be qt'ing fish. I've read enough to know what I need and what I need to do there thanks to this awesome forum.

However, do you qt corals and anemones and inverts too? I read some get "dipped". But mostly sounds like people just put them in their tanks? Please advise thanks

I have coralx for my corals. You add a capful and some tank water and let the coral sit for a few minutes. The you rinse it in tank water from another container and in it goes. some people QT everything, I'm just gonna go with the fish for now.lol

Buffy is just taking it extra slow, she has the patience thing down for sure.

BUT I do think she's being overly cautious but maybe the girl has stuff going on in life that precludes her from spending every waking moment on fish and fish stuff.

I think she's also a little scared to add livestock, but weren't we all? LOL
