Sounds good! Glad you have your little guy eating. I bought some feeding tongs today and am going to try waving mysis in front of him. Lol. I'm getting desperate!

For mine, he was a little weary at first, since all I have is pipettes, sink basically have to put my whole hand in the water. To start, at least with brine, I would put the pipettes near him and let the brine swim out. Then I started pushing the brine out with a little pressure. Finally he was comfortable with my hand / pipette and would come closer when I went in. And now, he basically watches the brine come out, gulps them, or tracks them for a second. They don't last - any he misses the Chromis gets.

I'm excited about him eating the ghost though, finally got a fat belly. The ghost was about the same length as him.

Did you try the garlic?

Came home tonight stressing about the angler... I was so worried all day whether I acclimated him well enough, wether he ate too much with the brine and ghost, whether the tank parameters were okay in the BC...

Well, since my BC lunars are garbage, I could barely see anything at all, so I kicked on the lunars on the 10 gallon, and with that light I was able to locate my angler... Sitting right on one of the bushy red macros and leaned onto the rock! Exactly what I'd hoped for. Right dead in the front of the tank! Awesome!

Thanks again FT for having such a great taste in fish! So exciting!

Thanks guys - after getting up this morning I found him perched on one of the tonga branches, which again is what I'd hoped, then shortly thereafter I saw him in the 1st picture. I took a shower, teeth, etc., and came back in and he had disappeared, I looked around the small tank for a solid two minutes before realizing he had gone to another Macro bunch and was totally camo. I don't know if this is the same stuff they mimic, but I find it quite difficult to distinguish between the red on his body and the red macro

That is so cool about they camouflage abilities!

Your Angler is so good at camouflaging that I had to zoom in on my iPhone to see if the red stripe area was the macro or the fish, LOL.

Yes, it is AWESOME!

I got the Chromis moved over today finally, and took down the 10 gallon to bare tank, cleaned it up, put a 2" sandbed and all the rock back in and had it filtering when I left for work - started to clear up.

Still got the frags and trumpet in there too!
