Possibly...anglers can die b/c they don't know when to stop feeding. But that angler does look healthy and damsels are not fed with tweazers right in front of his face...he has to catch it. What's the probability he'll catch all five in a day? Maybe the damsels are too fast and he still feeds the angler live foods? Wasn't really specified I think.

Idk. I actually started reading that whole thread but gave up on page 10 lol! But yeah if anyone could tell me how much a week? In sure if differs depending on size.

Also would a small 1" or less angler be able to eat a small chromis?

In that thread the angler was an inch or under and he was "making friends" with the chromis. Everyone said one day he'll turn on his buddy and eat him. Don't know if he has yet...Anyway, anglers can eat fish the same size, if not larger than they are. I doubt a 1" angler would go after a moving chromis. The chromis is likely up top or in the middle and the angler is on the rocks..not very convenient. Looks like live saltwater shrimp is going to be a good source of food. You can try getting him to eat frozen foods in the mean time. Experiment..

Could I put 2 in if I did at the same time? Or is that just asking for trouble and I should just stick with one?
