    Hi guys!

    Could you give me some help as to the variety of food I can feed my Midas Blenny?

    I have a 1.2m tank at the moment which contains 1 Midas Blenny, 1 boxing shrimp
    & 4 algae snails.

    The Midas is on a flake and pellet diet at the moment(Ocean Nutrition)

    What else can I provide for the tank inhabitants?

    Cheers,
    Costa.

    Can I, therefore, feed him frozen mussel, clam & crab stick from my local fish shop

    Or should i rather get the frozen cube sort(e.g. brine shrimp etc.) from my local pet
    shop?

    That Marina Mix is great but apparently you must not feed the crab stick, you must take that out. You can eat that, if it appeals to you.:p
