Greedy Trigger...
What do you guys do when you have a greedy fish? I have a Niger Trigger that eats at warp speed to the point where no other fish have time to eat. I just got another Tang, after my last fiasco I want this one to live and so far he looks good. I can't net him every time I am feeding... what should I do? P.S. He is freakin fast...

is it possible to spot feed the rest of your fish with a turkey baster???

Can you feed pellets or flake with a baster? Just add water and pellets? There is only one other fish right now and he is brand new... he actually spit a pellet so I don't know what he likes yet. He is a yellow tang btw.

you need to clip some nori to the tank almost every day. Not sure if the trigger will go for the algae.

Niger triggers will be quick to eat all the food. Try feeding him first for 5 minutes or so. Then about 5 minutes after that try feeding the other fish. Worked great for me till she learned to let the others eat too.
