The Emp has arrived!

The Emp Angelfish has arrived! And he is sooo amazing. Right from the start even while I was acclimating him he was already eating, hehe looks like I got a real good one. He's going to have to live in my refugium for a little while until he grows but he seems to really really like it! I put some live rock in there to make him feel more comfortable and for snacking on.

Oh yeah I may just order from Saltwaterfish.com all the time now! It's especially good for me since they're located right in the same county as me. I can't believe how healthy, colorful and hardy the Emp is. I've decided to name him King lol because to me the Emp is the King of all Angels.
I just hope when the time comes to move him from the refugium to the main tank I won't have problems with the Wrasse, that's why I must let him grow up first.

Any suggestions for diet for the Emp? So far he's loving this:

New Life Spectrum Thera-A Large Fish Formula, Sinking Pellet Food

I hear diet is very important for these little fellas due to their maturing to an adult, if they don't have the proper diet I hear they won't color change to their full potential.

How long do you guys think it will before the Emp grows to a pretty good size and starts to mature into adult coloring and size?

I'm thinking about ordering a Flame angel from them considering your experience. Beautiful specimen.
