    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    A absolutely stunning fish, but not the easiest to acclimate, nor does it do well with most of the common foods available.

    Personally I would try Rod's Foods, frozen, look a the ingredients. Rod's has just about everything in it and in good proportions.

    Thanks!... Im going to pick up some Rods food today!

    Should I get the original blend or Herbivore blend? (I have 2 clowns, a fox face, and a melanurus wrasse as well)

    My CB eats the New Life Spectrum pellets. He also eats some frozen Limpits Reef Buffet, about once a week.

    He never has touched the Sea weed sheets I put in every few days.

    He does pick at some algae in the tank.

    Mine does not have as much orange as yours, - nice fish.

    My CB is too small for the NLS pellets I have... its roughly the size of a quarter or so...

    I picked up some herbivore rods food and it seemed to be a big hit with all the fish... pretty sure I saw the CB attacking it as well... But the CB is constantly roaming around my tank pecking at the rocks too...
