I know right, a day or two away and I'm sooo behind.

Yep, that nutramar has also been recommended to me for mine, that might be a good place to start. It took mine about a week before she would start eating anything but pods and she started out really slow, just a piece here and there. i would actually count how many she ate. lol She has gone from a flat almost concave belly to a fuller stomach now so I know she is eating well. i also feed at least two times a day now, I was feeding 3 times for her.

I hope yours does really well, it would be a great fish to keep.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ah bummer! Tusk looks pretty wicked. But I can see why you wouldn't want to have all your crabs become a snack.

Probably best. Tusks are said not to be very corral friendly and I seem to remember that you have some of them.

I have a coral banded shrimp and I like him, I read a lot of negative comments on here about them, so far I have seen mine try to pinch at a fish a few times, but he hasn't hurt anyone yet. Hopefully he doesn't cause he is cool to watch!
