I turn off all the water flow and use a turkey baster to direct the frozen food to him and I put some on the rock too. He is constantly pecking so he ends up getting some that way too.

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

Thats a good idea, train him to go to one spot. Mine still gets freaked out by the baster thing but we're working on our issues, him and I. LOL

Have you started a pod tank yet? Mine is cycling HARD core. i have about 20lbs of lr in the tank so far. Just hoping they grow quick after the cycle finishes

Three bags total and I added 18 lbs of live rock, ten lbs of sand and i put in some cheato today. I've been putting in some flake and phyto. It's cycling though so I can't tell for sure if it's gonna work yet.
