The hermits will eat whatever you feed the tank and the others get their food from the water column so no special feeding required. Although I;m not 100% on the fan worm....I have a feather duster that doesnt require special feeding so I'm assumng it's pretty much the same.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Also when shall i feed them ? i havent put the light on yet because i was told not to put it on for about an hour after theyve been introduced. I introduced them properly aswell the gobys just hiding and the crabs are allready feeding of the rocks.

The goby will come out eventually, it's taken several weeks for my warpaint goby to come out of hiding in my pico tank. Mine eats flake food as well as brine shrimp and a frozen cube called emerald entree.

Keep in mind he may not eat right away, he's in a new home so give him a few days. I would turn the light on in a bit, see if he's ok.

And yeah, hermits arent shy, they will get right to work. lol

You could try a little bit of food, mine darts out from the rocks to eat, it's pretty funny to watch.lol It's a great sign when they eat right away from my experience. I tend to feed a few hours after I put them in just to see if they will eat.
