    Anyone ever seen a Powder Brown Tang chowing down on Zoanthids? I caught the little bastard eating those lekka zoas I got from Dorry Pets last night!! I've been wondering why they haven't been opening lately and now I know!

    Anyone in the market for a nice healthy PB?:nono:

    The powder brown will be for sale for R250... He's Healthy, but does occasionally get some white spot. Feed him some Nori, and it goes away... Crazy fish.

    The strange thing is that it wasn't just eating them. It picked up a part of the colony and shook it around like you'd imagine a pitbull shaking whatever it's attacking! Damned fish.

    It's now got to go...

    Poon Tang is public aquarium enemy number 1!!!!!!!!!

    I had a similar problem with my regal eating xenia. I started feeding him more and the problem was sorted. I have to leave a half sheet of nori in the tank every morning just for him.

    I paid R250. That was around 4 months ago.


    I do give him nori every day... Silly bugger... Oh well... Will see how he does this weekend.

    Easy solution, i'll take the zoas off your hands. Then you can keep the PB :P:thumbup:

    I think the zoas may be too far gone... The PB must go.

    Was also thinking the PB might be lacking something in his diet? Something similar to cats/dogs sometimes eating grass?
