Is there anything I can do to get the sand out of the column or just live with it? Not having clear water bothers the heck out of me!!!

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

ok, good luck. I found when weaning them onto frozen that multiple feedings per day worked pretty well. Keep in mind these guys spend their entire day hunting for food. So once a day feeding is kinda not good. I feed at least twice a day now with the water flow off and the turkey baster to get the food to the fish. My scooter likes to eat off the sand bed so I shoot some food so it lays on the sand. he doesn't go for food much in the water column. Now my mandarin, she likes to eat the food from the top of the water, go figure. lol

So I just fed and as soon as I put the food in the water the blenny perked up and started sifting the sand more and he also put all his fins up and fluttered his whole body so I guess it looks promising

I'd feed him again later and pay real close attention. I literally sit and watch my guys eat to make sure they are still ok with the frozen food. Rumor has it they can revert back to pods so i am paranoid and always watch em. lol
