I saw that turkey eating of the green algae clip when he thought I wasn't looking. His stomach is still a little drawn in, but he's very active and gets along fine with the small bristletooth tang he's housed with in QT.

Well, if he stays the course, I guess I'll be moving him and the bristle to the main in about 2 weeks or so. I usually QT for 2 - 3 weeks depending on the fish. Thing is, those two and my purple tang will all move in on the same day.

I think I'll also hit the local Asian stores for tang food also. Looking for what again? Vegetable wrapping stuff - what's it called? Nori?

Glad it’s eating, some are more bashful then others in the beginning.

At the Asian markets just calling it Nori should be fine. It’s what they wrap the sushi in

One thing I have done that has worked well is cut nori in thin strips but leave the strips attached by not cutting all the way through. Soak it in garlic and attach it to a rock with a rubber band. The strips waving in the water seems to attract them better.

Oh yeah, eating in plain view now. Not bashfull at all anymore. Eats green algae from the clip and follows broken away pieces thru the water too. So far, so good.

Can't wait to put him, the bristle, and the purple tangs in the main. Got a pair of pick skunk clowns that need to get put in their place. They, especially the female, bullys others. She's the biggest thing in the tank right now. Figure the tangs will calm him down.

Either that, or I'll snatch her up at feeding sometime and return her- if I'm able. I think I can.

Think the tangs will settle her down? Leave her alone? I'd keep the male.

Prob will not pay it any attention. The clown will prob be just as bad but will stick closer to its territory.

OK. I think the female for sure has to go. I don't like bullies -in or out of fish tanks.

Last nite, found my aurora shrimp goby on the floor and my male flasher wrasse in the overflow. I tried to get him out for about a half hour last nite to no avail. Gotta go at it again tonite. Best I can do is pull the durso off and fish. Hope I don't hurt him it's tight in there.

Anybody know of any good tricks?
