    Just joined today. I have a 2.3x.7x.8 marine tank +- 1000lt. Fish and corals.
    My most recent addition is a small clown surgeon. He is eating but staying very thin. Does anyone have any ideas on feeding. I am feeding bloodworm, tetra bits, live brine shrimp.

    Welcome to MASA, hope you enjoy it here with us. I agree, surgeon fish are herbivores and requires algae in there diet. You must feed nori, and Ocean nutrition also makes pellets for herbivores. I read somewhere that bloodworms is not good for marine fish as it's not a natural food in the ocean. I would not feed it. Rather stick to other marine type frozen foods like mysid shrimp, brine that you're already feeding, lance fish, marine mix, etc ,etc. You can also make your own. You take different meaty bit like mussels, clam, squid, algae types and blend it all together, then freezing it. There is a nice recipe somewhere, can't remember :whistling:

    welcome to masa:) thats a lovely sized tank, i was half hoping youd say it was big enough for a few decent GT's in there:)

    id love to see the set up of the tank, im sure we can all learn how to keep the non reefers off our backs:)
