Lol well he is trying to get it so that's a plus. I am just used to fish like chop who eat like pigs everyday. It's a different experience for sure with this guy.

That's great! If one of my damsels came up missing I'd be more inclined to check my long-nosed hawk for a fat belly!

Thanks I am relieved he got it. How often does your angler eat?

I feed him 15-20 (1-2") ghost shrimp twice / week. He's only eaten one Chromis and two damsels in his lifetime.

Sounds like a lot of shrimp . I have read that anglers should be feed once per week and also had that recommend by the angler keeper that started this craze when you first got yours lol. With any of your reading / experience keeping one do you see any issues with weekly feedings?

I would for sure say that one good Chromis or damsel would be fine, but these shrimp are small and I don't think they contain near the nutritional value. My feeding is like once every 5 days, but it still seems like twice a week. All I know is that my angler has grown 16x as large as when I got him so I think he's healthy. My angler will refuse food once he is full. Usually 10-15 go to him and 5-10 are eaten by damsels and my 54 gallon members.

Bottom line, if he gets a good meal, I'd say once per week is plenty.

Picked these 2 corals up last night. Got a duncan with 3 heads for $25 and a rock with 6 hairy mushrooms for $20.
