I have a lobo brain, a hammer and a candy cane. All seem pretty easy. I don't do anything special for them.

If I had to say, the hammer or candy cane should be the easiest.

A hammer sounds harder than a brain!

cyclopeeze would work. I have cyclopeeze and freeze dried phyto but I really don't do much. I mainly target feed a gorgonian I have and everyone else gets leftovers. The candy cane has feelers that come out at night.

Was idly browsing eBay, and came up with this rather nice looking specimen of a hammer: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=4338997145

I think I want a hammer now
