Very nice fish Chris. Good luck with it. They seem to be a bit difficult to keep long-term. I've had a few over the years that seemed fine for months and then suddenly went south. Why? I dunno. Randy

Thanks for the info Randy. I'm at 3 months right now with this fish and it seems okay so far, obviously far too early for me to make any long term assumptions. I've noticed that along with the mysis and cyclopeeze, it loves frozen formula 2, nori and flakes (formula 1, formula 2, prime reef, and spirulina flakes). As you guys know, I am unfortunately MR's unofficial fish over-feeder. I'm hoping that with several feedings per day of good variety, I can keep it long term.
As for your next post, I will post on that thread.

Great Chris. I think frequent varied feedings is probably the key to long-term success. RD

Soaking foods in Selcon and Vitachem also is key to maitaining health and color.

I've used selcon. Would like to try Vitachem. Thanks for the info.

Me too. Nutrition is key. I remember when Naso Tangs were considered a fish which does well at first and rapidly declined after a few months for "no good reason". Well, fortunately, guys with the proper resources were able to figure out that it was a lack of brown algae in their diets (as well as many who kept them in too small enclosures) that they were able to narrow down the cause of decline. Learning little things that you get out of a site like this hopefully will help more of us get long term results.
