Thanks,

If that's what I have in my tank I would add some flakes every day to feed the Live sand and a very small piece of fish or mysid for the shrimp.

Are we talking about a piece of fish that I get from the fish market for the shrimp? How about the anenome? I fed it some frozen Formula One today, which it ate. Actually, the shrimp seem to really like it too.

Fish from the store will work ususally. Formula 1 is excellent though. It's a well rounded meal.

Well, the Condy could be a problem. If you feed it enough to keep it healthy then it will quickly outgrow the tank. Normally I would suggest feeding it as much as it will eat every other day. Siversides or Lancefish would be excellent food for it.

Guy,

Silversides and Lance fish? These are live fish? Dried? I have seen neither available at LFSs.

Silversides are usually frozen. The advantage is that they are frozen whole and contain the organs, gut, etc. I believe the internals to be very beneficial to animals that notmally eat fish.
