I hear ya. For now whatever goes in my tank has to be able to survive low flow and 10k whites and acintics.

From what I understand anglers like low flow, so that's what I'm basing mine on too.

I'm a little concerned. Feo still hasn't eaten the peppermint shrimp. He's moved around- but that's it.

I am no expert at all..but after reading all these angler threads, they need variation to get them interested. Try buying a a really small damsel, and using shark formula, brine, and other types of food!

Great looking tank! Have you got the bugger to eat yet? He looks almost like the one my LFS had when I wanted to buy one. I keep thinking my 36 would be a great home for him...and I wouldn't be worrying about my damsel in the tank anymore...lol.

Ok. I'll do that. I'm glad to report that he is moving around plenty though. I had two little power heads in there to make the macro happy but I think it was too much for him so I turned one off last night. He looked like he was floating when he hit that current higher up in the tank. Lol. Thankfully after I turned it off he found his spot to perch. It's odd though because I'm not sure why he swam to the top third of the tank in the first place. He is starting to blend in with the macro now which is cool to see. I'm going to try to put some PVC together today to rig the second power head further up to keep the surface of the tank in motion. I worry about parameters. I can already see algae in my future with so little movement as it is now. Is this a problem for you?

You should do it! Lol

Still waiting for him to eat. But every time I walk by and check for the peppermint he is just sitting there staring at me like "I ain't stupid- he will eat me!!!" lol

Ok. Still worried that he's not eating. So much that I'm debating the logistics of soaking a live peppermint in garlic. Lol
