The "advanced" part of the hobby is indeed caring for special needs fish and corals. But advanced doesn't necessarily mean you have been in the hobby a long time. It means you have studied the techniques needed to support such creatures and practiced them. I know folks that commonly keep fish and corals most of us (including me) would kill. But they have few other distractions. I have to work for a living.

Thank you everyone for your advice and suggestions! Great suggestions, and a lot to think about. I am no stranger to feeding hard-to-care-for fish, but in a different side of the hobby. That being said, I have multiple extremely finicky temperate marine fish, and will have to give a lot of thought to if I want to add on that kind of extra responsibility at the moment, especially when there is no close access to their natural food like I have for my cold critters. P.S. The OP is a she.
