    I remember seeing I think it was @Nemos Janitor that was talking about that paste you can stick on your glass to feed your fish.

    Where can you buy it I just can't find it anywhere.

    Some fish will eat it others wont, depends on their eating habits.....Angels, blennies (grazing fish) will love it, but it wont appeal to fish that eat out of the water column (gramma, chromis etc) unless bits are broken off and float around....well thats how it works in my tank anyways...

    The Tangs also love it.... Actually all my fish love it... The Chromis go crazy and bite pieces off for the Anthias and the rest to feast. The only downside is the skimmer.... It also goes crazy.....drops for about an hour after the feast!

    Dosing any medication into a reef tank should be done with caution. Praziquantel, or Droncit can be mixed with the food. As can vitemans and garlic. But having said that, I would not go out and buy reef paste just to dose sick fish. The fish must be used to taking the reef paste first else the medication will just go into the water colum and then your reef may suffer.
