If its an established tank then they will find stuff but mine are so greedy that nothing eats before them. Got three of them and they will pull the food right out of my fish/corals mouths when I feed lol

I feed my fish and then put a little for them as well. That way I know they don't go after each other (coral banded can be a Bo Bo head) and I just like to watch them eat! They're kind of greedy which is funny to me!

They really dont need fed directly but usually they will be ready to eat when its dinner time and your feeding the tank. Usually a squirt some food in their faces with a turkey baster when im feeding and they go to town.

I'll put a small piece of raw shrimp in when I feed.
