Ok, I was planning on buying frags from Mr Coral. Are frags anymore difficult to care for? Is there an "all-in-one" type of coral food (preferably liquid or dry) to dose?

Frags are just the same to keep as the normal coral, just smaller. I use Phyto liquid.

Lol I'm sure you ment "as"....lol. You use phyto liquid for all your corals (hard,soft,inverts)? I assume you don't target feed, you just add to water?

Man, I hate using the phone to type, always seems to screw something up. I use it for LPS and Softies. I don't have any SPS.

Same here, may I also ask what you feed your fish?

Mysis Shrimp, Plankton, Krill, Plankton and Squid. I only feed one of these at a time in the morning, then at night I give em a leaf of Romaine Lettuce.

Sounds good, im sure I will have more questions once I get the tank going, but that won't be for a couple of months.

Thanks for all the help madness and onefish,

no problem metal,

to add to foods, i recently picked up new life spectrums macro and micro food. im a big fan so far.

i always offer a large mixture of different foods though, so my fish arnt picky eaters ofcourse but more so they get all the nutrition they need for their longest life span. a good idea would be to check your area for a local asain supermarket and buy a bag of mixed seafood, make sure its raw. take it home, pre-rinse it. preferably with RO water, throw it into your mothers/wife/gfs food processor and make a home made fish food. adding things like selcon, liquid garlic, and food boosters might not be a bad idea either, alittle goes a long way here. then bag it or spread it out on eggcrate on a cookie sheet and freeze it ( so you can get little squares of frozen food )

**the biggest step to doing this is to make sure you wash the food processor cup BEFORE said mother/wife/gf returns home from work and put it back on the shelf

I will take your idea into consideration. I was mainly looking for dry food products, as said family members wouldn't appreciate fish food in said extremely packed freezer/fridge.

I was thinking a veggie based and something else in slow sinking pellet form while for the blenny, an algae wafer. How's that sound?

And I do like the like the idea of adding lettuce and other vegetables to the tank. Maybe I'll have better luck compared to my FW tank. They are super picky.

You could try the algae wafer, hoping no one else will grab it.
