    I try to feed them a variety of foods, this morning they got some pellets, some nori and some frozen brine shrimp.... open to suggestions as to what else i can feed them that will make them happy?

    @ Rob, the nem is bigger than a dinner plate when fully extended ..... as for a FTS, i have a few things i want to sort out befor i take one, but will get one in the next week or so .....:thumbup:

    Thanks for the compliment Jacques!!!!

    ONLY pleasure.... they were taken with a cannon 350D 10mp, so the originals are pretty big, just let me know which ones !

    So how do you train your fish to pose so nicely for photos? If I only bring a camera close to the tank, my yellow wrasse does it's Hodini dissappearing act. I can take the photo of the great invisible fish then. You'll all be staring at my gravel... :lol:

    Great looking fish AND I LOVE THE NENNIE!!!
