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

I learned something today.

Is there any site that you feel is accurate? Alot of us go by liveaqauria and if what you say is true then alot of people are gonna have issues at some point due to the misinformation.

I feed mine chopped frozen shrimp weekly that is placed under the sand. He moves right to it and gobbles it up.

well, i have noticed a lot of the sites have copied and pasted information that may or may not be accurate, for various reasons. some things we thought were true, have since been disproved, and some things were just plain overlooked IMO.
i don't know any one place for information. i try to gather it from as many sources as are available.

-how do you know he moves right to it if it's under the sand?

Because I know exactly where I place it. I always plant two because sometime my goby acts mischievous and will try to dig one up. Within 15 minutes the star will surface from under the sand where he is and move to directly over where one is planted and start going down for it. I always plant them within a few inches of where he is already under the sand. I watch him do it everytime because I think it is so cool.

interesting. i have never witnessed anything like this and neither have 99.9% of the reef keepers before me. is it possible there are 2 species that resemble one another?

I read somewhere that there are as many as 7 species that all look very similar. Don't know how much truth there is to that though.

there must be some if you are 100% sure it's eating meaty foods, and it's not just the bristle worms or nassarius snails eating it.
