FormulaOne is a very good brand. They produce both prepared food and frozen food. HTH

I soak my frozen food in these:

http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...2&N=2004+22763
http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...3&N=2004+22763

I switch between Formula 1 and flakes for a variety.

Not sure if these are compatible w/a reef set up. I feed everyother day.

That does look like too many fish for that tank.

Maybe get a pistol shrimp for your watchman goby.

I agree as well. You can choose to exceed the general “stock limit” rule of 1” per 5 gal but you will only stress your stock & battle algae/no3 levels constantly IMO.

As far as what to feed this post covers it well.
