    Hi Guys,

    So I decided to get myself a regal angel only to realise that they are on of the most difficult species to get to eat. After reading a bit of literature on the net regarding them I realised that the ones from the Red Sea seem to do a bit better than the ones from Indonesia etc, although this has changed of late.

    He seems very healthy and happy in the 4ft that he's sharing with a Blond Naso, but I am fully aware of the consequences if he doesn't feed and disease starts to settle in. I've tried multiple types of food from Ocean Nutrition including nori, Mysis, Krill and their much spoken of Angel mix, but he hasn't seem to take a likening in either:(

    I've even go so far as to tie the food down to LR as some people suggest that they battle to eat from the water column as they're not used to eating like that.

    I haven't tried clams, so where will I be able to get some as I'm not keen on going to a LFS and buying a priced piece just to get him to eat:p

    O ja he's a yellow belly

    Thanks
