A bud had a flounder in his tank. Never saw it apart from its eyes, was pretty cool to watch it eat though.

No experience with these, but they would eat smaller fish n inverts.

Just remember that flounders are ambush predators (thats why they go camo so well) I once caught one on rapala while fishing in the surf .So just be carefull with it in your reef tank and count your anthias every morning

There is no fun feeding frozen food to predators.
hahaha i hear you dude , but any live food i put in gets snapped up by the Spilurus and Thorax before they even land on the sand
