In the front 2/3s I changed sand out to black (so I can see babies easier) and installed a PAR 38 bulb. Last weekend I added the nem from my display and today I got her 3 more buddies. Can't wait to see if they spawn. Side note, only one baby survived in my display and I really feel like it's largely due to being unable to reach and feed the babies regularly like I have this one. I'm hoping this tank will not have that issue since there are no caves or large rock structures to work around.

I think the reason I lost my beautiful frilly one was because it went under the rock work so far. I am pretty crushed about that still.
I still have my brownish one. I feed him once a week with the Oyster feast. But I think I will try something else this next purchase. Many of the chunks were pretty big and I am not sure the fish and critters got too much at a time. The big pieces just plunk out so you aren't too sure how much you are gonna get - though in thinking, I guess I could dose it into a cup first and if I get too much put some back...just don't really like the chance of contaminating it, then the bottle.
Yours are looking great. Excited to see if you can get the babies to really take off this way. They are still one of my very favorites!
Do you or anyone else think I should target feed him more frequently? He gets anything that falls in from feeding the fish and other inhabitants as well.
The dry foods are varied: meaty, omnivore, algae based.
Frozen are Mysis, bbs, bs, Tubifex (occasionally a little bit, for the Clowns) one other I can't recall atm.
Everyone, what are you feeding to yours and how often?
