Found one Chromis dead this morning - no marks on him. The other was eating pods off the glass and rock like crazy, so I tossed in a tiny bit of flake and he ate it and spit it back out! Who knew I bought a mandarin Chromis!?!

Anyway, even at 1", I still think the Chromis is too big for the angler to eat for now. The Chromis is about the same length, but double the size of angler body-wise. We'll see though.

Here is a pick or two of the Chromis, and you can compare it to the earlier pic of the angler sitting on frag rack.

I've got some tricks up my sleeve

Tomorrow I'll have my findings. I've got a good amount of information to go with. We're still in good shape.

Cool. Another suggestion is a clown goby

Are you gonna eventually try silversides? I've seen people put one on a stick and wiggle it by the anglers lure and he smoked it!

For sure - silversides is where it's at. My plan is to do a "net trick" in which I scoop up some brine and he eats a bunch out of the net. That's first just so I know he's eaten.

Then I'm going to wait till Friday, after he's nice and hungry and try a variety of frozen options: Table shrimp piece, silverside piece, a portion of a cube food like trigger or shark formula.

I've got some nice options for feeding from here:

Missed this one! Some people do use pepperments as a source.

Apparently a shrimp diet is bad for SW fish, and should only be used as a small percentage of the total diet.

They get some Vitamin A deficiency or somthing like that. Also foods high in thiamiese or something or other, are also bad if used as a high % of the diet.
