Yea I've been feeding baby brine shrimp as well as tiny pellets from sustainable aquatics. Have you found prepared foods are sufficient or do you have a large pod population?100%. I love their fish. I do have a Coral Beauty that was super tiny and now he is about 2 inches (maybe 1.5) and colored absolutely beautiful. My tangs where so tiny they were transparent mostly. I do think that you need to be extra careful when they are so tiny but they do really well. I have a pair of mandarin fish that were so tiny I had to feed them baby brine shrimp or brine shrimp eggs. They are fully grown now.
Yea I have no idea how many pods my tank has but I'm assuming the population grew pretty big while tank was fallow. I always seem to have them on the dt glass, pretty sure that's a decent sign there's a lot.I do have a ton of pods. I have never had this amount of pods in any tank I have had before. When I say I have a lot, there is a lot. I think they eat a lot of the pods, as do other fish as well, but they both come up with I feed the tank with LSR Reef Frenzy. I feed my tank at least twice per day. From time to time, I do add RDO pellets as well. Everyone eats whatever I throw in the tank and I think it is because they see others go nuts. The only one that does not eat all that much food I feed is my watchman goby. He is constantly grassing and is pretty fat so I don't worry about him.
