I feed the tank brine and mysis and he sticks his head out of his cave and grabs pieces. But he wont come completely out. Just far enough to grab pieces here and there.

You'll be fine with the engineer. It takes some time for them to come out. But they are pretty hardy and fun to watch. Not to mention ten times safer than an eel. Lol

Haha thanks!! We have owned an eel before so i think it will be similar, he was shy at first but evenutally ate out of my hands and everything. Oh ya that engineer is JUST what we were looking for. An eel... But not an eel...

Lol. Yep. That's the exact reason I got one! I feel a lot safer putting my hands in my tank than the tank at the shop with the 2 ft zebra eel. Although- after a month I have him eating out of my hand (with caution).

So what's the first fish you'll be buying? Are all of the corals doing well?

Dude i kinda hate coral. They are ok, but when they die it is for no reason. I think we are going to waste all of our money on fish, then buy coral once its all set up. We only lost the xenia, but one of the hammers and the torch dont look that great. Everything els is fine, and the frogspawn, duncan, gsp, hammer, and toadstool look amazing
