Stunning fish! I love them so much, just wish they were easier to care for. lol

Just try some frozen mysis or brine, I use a turkey baster to shoot it at mine and she gobbles it all up. Start with small foods at first, I started with frozen cyclopeeze and baby brine shrimp. she worked her way up to the larger foods over time.

Sweet! That's what I was hoping for but as it has no color for now I wasn't sure!! Only started popping up in the last 2 days since I added light timers and a vertex skimmer..

I know I need a herbivore type fish would one of these be better suited for my tank?
Two spot bristletooth tang
Mimic half black tang
One spot fox face

Open to other recommendations as well but please tell me why you are suggesting it. Thanks!

I would pass on the tangs in that size tank but the foxface might be a good option.

Yeah there seems to be only a handful that are ok for a 60-70 gallon per liveaquaria and those were the only 2 that I liked.. Any other ideas?

"with caution." coral beauty. i have read several times is the most reef safe of the dwarfs... i have read that flames can nip when they mature into adulthood. some will flat destroy as they become adults. personality of the fish comes into play too. its either sps or lps corals that they go after more. i cant remember.

As long as you have the lights and research their specific needs (if any) you should be ok.

I have a blue line led on timers blue on for 1 1/2 hr the white kick on for 8 hrs and then back to blue for 1 1/2 hr.. Was told it should be able to grow anything.. What I'm specifically looking at is a green hairy mushroom, kryptonite candy cane and a Pom Pom Xenia for $40 Thoughts on the 3?

To be honest, i'm not too familiar with the Blueline LED fixtures. Hopefully someone with experience with these lights can chime in.

If it's true what they say about replacing a 250w MH, they you should be good to go.
