    1st of i do not apologise for the quality of the pics! Its a black berry damit.
    Easy as pie
    1 - have a healthy mini nennie

    2- get your food of choice, in this case whole lance fish from Ocean nutrition. I am sure squid, hake, prawn and pellets will also be consumed

    3 - Show the reefing comunity the size of the lance fish that the mini nenni will eat

    4 - Put the fish into the mini nenni

    5 - watch it eat it

    You're lucky you dont have shrimp, otherwise you'd be fighting them off with a stick. Thanks for sharing this with us Z

    @Tony
    I have 4 cleaner shrimp and a blood shrimp (wife loves them) and they come but the lance fish is nice and big and the nennies close up very very quickly so they hardly get any my sailfin and bluethroat attack it more.
    Will try for a video this weekend.

    I feed my 2 nennies cut up pieces of hake from PnP. Have to use a chopstick in order to feed them though.

    I see you feed it quite a big chunk hey... does it take up all of it? I've been told to feed it a piece the size of its mouth otherwise it just spits it out.

    And I'd love to be able to put on the sand like yours but I've got a wrasse that throws sand all over the place and a pet peeve of mine is seeing corals/nennies with sand on it.

    Good looking nennie you have there :thumbup:

    I feed it the entire lance fish, it about half the length of the nennie but not very thick and chunky so it eats the entire thing.

    I think the normal carpet nennies are more fussy with the size of their food, if its too big then they spit it out... but also with my mini nennies I feed biggish chunks and they are cool with it :) ..
