Well I at the time he was in the biocube and there was a fuge attached in back so I had enough pods, I didnt notice him looking any thinner than when I got him. The small tank also gave me the chance to target feed him several times a day. I tried like 13 different frozen foods over that month lol and my water parameters were horrible due to theoverfeeding. he eventually started with cyclopeeze and worked his way up to baby brine and then full size brine. her used to love bloodworms too but now the new life pellets are his favorite. Him eating the bloodworms was fun to watch too, he would suck them down like a string of spaghetti lol.
I occassionally throw in some live brine as a treat though and he lovesw that as well, lets him hunt for the food.

If I had to do it over though I'm not sure I would have taken the risk. he could have easily become another death statistic.

If your talking about the cheato than whenever you want. It takes the nutrients away from other algeas so it helps cut down on them (the green stuff atleast) not sure sbout copepods but im guessing after the cycle?

Diatoms... They will go away eventually and are part of the cycle.

Good luck and great job taking your time. It's always so hard to wait, but it really does pay off, especially in a small tank

Yeah. I hated waiting. So I didn't. Big mistake. Everything worked out well, but I think it was really a massive stroke of luck
