How important is the Zoe? Can i use DT's in the recipe.
Yes you can use DT's. Zoe is just the marine vitamin I prefer, you can use Selco or Selcon, or anything comparable. It's not essential that you use a marine vitamin, it just adds more nutrients. If you don't have any, and need to thin out the mix, just add some tank water.

My Purple Tang eats meat, he is not too fond of seaweed, so he should like this too.
Make sure you get some Nori and or Spirulina flake (some sort of veg.) in there for him. Although the fish may seem to prefer "meaty" foods (our Tangs love it), they are still primarily grazers/vegetable eaters, and seaweed is an extremely important part of their diet.

Good luck with it, and get out the scented candles!

I'm concerned about your lighting...what size tank do you have?

The first quote is what had me concerned, at 210 total W, that's slightly less than 4 WPG, rather than two This should be enough to keep a frogspawn.

What's wrong with putting the stem in the sand. I got a frogspawn last week and buried it's stem in the sand.
I would imagine the problem would be that sand isn't a very good base, as the coral grows it may get a bit top heavy for the stem with just sand supporting it. I also would venture a less likely guess that being on the sandbed, sand could easily get kicked up onto it which would potentially irritate the coral from opening fully.

I made some blender mush tonight. I wanted to use the stuff i already had in the house, so here is what i put in. Defrosted some shrimp, sqid and chopped clams, that i had had bought last week fresh from the local monger for my eel. I added Formula One Plellets, and Formula Two Flakes, with some Garlic Guard and a quarter of a sheet of Sally's Seaweed Salad. I blended it all up adding a little at a time into the blender to vary the consistancy. It didnt smell all that bad. I added some to the tank and all the fish seemed to enjoy it. The eel came out when he smelled the seafood in the tank, but when i tried to feed him, he didnt eat.
