Some tangs don't eat it. He's still gonna need veggie matter though. There are some frozen varieties too.

Got a test kit yet? Gonna need one. I'm curious about the nitrates and phosphates.

Also, don't leave the seaweed sheets in there if the tang doesn't eat it. I presume you put it on a clip on the front glass?

yea gota test kit. amonia 0 nitrates 5 nitrites 0. no phosphate test kit yet sp 1.023, kh 10, ph8.5. I have been feeding the tang the pellets i got with the set up they are called "Boyds Vita Diet" He tears em up when i drop em in. Not sure if thats a good food for them or not it was what the former owner was feeding them.

I am so surprised anything lived in that tank. the ammonia was at a 4 when i got it. The test Kit i got with the set up says "aquarium Pharmaceuticals" on the bottles. Is this a good reliable kit? Im gonna run a water sample over to my lfs and have them test it for phosphate, calcium etc... I love the advice and I am defianatly hooked. My gf kinda looked at me sideways when i told her we was going after a free sw tank but she is definatly into it now.
