They're both really, really small. The flame angel was supposed to be a medium, but I'm convicted its a small, he's like 1.25" lol. The bf is probably 1.75" and they're both enjoying some seaweed strips

Thanks I can't wait to get them into the big tank.

So far they look 20x healthier than the angels and butterflies I see in the LFS. no heavy breathing or scratching

That's great! I don't tend to have the best luck with some LFS around here either unfortunately.

Yeah the fish I've ordered online have done a lot better than the ones from in the store.

I saw the butterfly twitch, I know flukes are very common in butterflies and Angels, but it's nothing a couple rounds of prazi can't handle

I know that the really tiny blue tangs require multiple daily feedings to survive, but should I feed the new fish a few times a day since they're so young?

Keep in mind with a tiny fish they dont need a boatload of food, they have tiny stomachs. lol If you feed sparingly I dont see why you couldnt feed twice a day. Since he is so tiny make sure you feed some greens, like algae sheets and frozen cubes with seaweed or greens. You'll just need a little piece of seaweed since he;s so tiny but I love watching my tangs rip the seaweed off the clip. lol The seaweed will keep him healthy and happy and more resistant to illness.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks! I gave them emerald entree which they liked and I put a seaweed clip in that they both enjoyed I don't know why smaller fish are so much cuter, but these things are adorable when they eat lol

I have an inch long sailfin blenny and he is a total blast to watch eat. I just love the tiny fishes. lol Brings out the parent in all of us I think, that we are raising and taking care of a little baby fish.
