tanks looking lovely mate:) love the bi colour and great to see that you are still understocked as its still a younge system. maybe a few new corals in there, they have better colour than corraline:)

Shiks,

I have not a lot of experience with nennies, but my feeling is you need to feed him a hell of a lot more than that. Small pieces of hake and shrimp twice a day or so. Maybe PM JacquesB, he seems to be very successful with nennies.

I agree, try feeding him small pieces of hake or shrimp at least 3 times a week, apart from that your tank is looking really good:)
