    Great Cheryl!!! I fed my piece last night after our little chat I was curious to see if I could get a feeding response from it. I did. It only reponds at night in my tank though.;)

    Thanks Vinny,

    It took about 20 min after introduction of food so I added more food. I can tell I will have to turn off the pumps for it to actually get anything of significance. Have to wonder if they grow faster if you feed them.

    NICE pictures, Cheryl! Once they get used to feedings, they will eat faster.

    What are you feeding yours, when and do you turn off the pumps?

    Hot damn, that is gorgeous!

    Great price too. A piece like that around here (Hudson Valley, NY) would be easily over a $100. And that is if I could even find something that nice in this area, which I doubt.

    I like to feed them after the Wrasses go to sleep, but usually it depends on my work schedule. Sometimes its in the middle of the day. They eat any time I feed them. I find that RIGHT after the lights go off, they deflate a little and poop, so I wait until they puff up a little.

    I usually only target feed all of the LPS and NPS with all of the pumps off. When the pumps go back on, there is a fair amountof food floating around, so generally I don't broadcast feed.

    Mostly I feed Nutramar Ova, PE mysis shrimp and Fauna Marine LPS pellets crushed into a fine powder. Sometimes I'll chop up whatever meat the fish are eating very fine. Shrimp, scallops, fish, whatever. They eat it all.
