    Just bought one of these guys, I see they are herbivores. I have veggie flakes, will he also need feeding with Nori? I feed a variety of different flakes, will this be suitable for him?

    Mine takes flakes (Omega One marine Flakes, Nutrafin Max), pellets (Omega One Small Pellets), loves brine shrimp and grazes on the glass. But it won't eat Nori, go figure.

    Those veggies flakes have shit loads of kelp etc. in it. But i would also try the nori as it is vegetarian only, so the fish is not going to compete with your clowns, wrasse and firefish for the flakes

    Warr: cost of nori? And any place I can get a cheap veggie clip? Also nori won't affect the quality of the water hey?

    Woolworths Susshi Nori does the job, veggie clip are about R35.00 - the usual LFS.

    Nori won't effect the water quality.

    Dude my Bi-colour will eat just about anything... from flakes to tablets to bloodworms to algae he finds on the glass and rocks...
    They are very cool fish and get really tame... mine is a serious character and is very tame :)
