    How old / mature is your tank?
    Be very careful with Idols.
    They are fantastic, but very hard to keep alive in a tank.

    It is very sad to see them slowly fade away.

    I know there are guys on the forum that keep them and they are perfectly healthy and eating frozen foods. Just make sure you get one that do eat frozen food!

    Just my 2c

    When they eat, they eat anything. Hope you get lucky, would expect them in the rock pools around end March.

    My tank is about 4-5 years uninterrupted,and i had a idol which i caught at port edward,it ate like a pig,was very socialwith my tangs,but unfortunately got sucked into a pump a few years back,i replaced those pumps since with wavemakers. I will be in hiberdene until the 20th,then we will board the cruise ship to moz for a week,then come back on the 25th,and return home on the 26th. I will GREATLY appreciate a idol,if i cannot catch one myself that is,hahaha. O ja,if i can catch one,i will keep it in my fathers tank in hiberdene,but its a bit small,a 4ft.
