    I have those, I feed them mostly the Spectrum Pellets.

    Sometimes a frozen- I use Limpits Reef Buffet.

    They rarely/never eat any Nori seaweed on a clip though.

    PS, I have alot of smaller sponges, and one large orange one, they never tough those either.
    They do pick at algae and debris some around the tank.

    I feed new life spectrum pellets, ocean nutrition pellets formula 1 and 2, prime reef flake, spirulina flake, PE mysis, reef nutrition arcti pods and beta brine. I keep a wide variety for all my fish. Twice a week I soak some pellets in garlic, selcon and angelixir.

    Most angels need some live sponge in there diet. Tree sponges mostly. Most frozen angel foods contain some but live pieces are much better.

    Mine spends all day picking at rock and glass. he flips upside down, sideways, etc etc to do it to lol. i love watching him. As for the food I give him, he eats the SMALL pieces of mysis (totally ignores the big pieces), he will always eat the Omega One Marine Flakes w/ garlic, and he sometimes eats the Oceans nutrition Formula One pellets. He has never ate the seaweed i've put in the tank, none of my fish have :/

    PS. I also recently bought the Emerald Entree frozen food that contains a mixture of mysis, brine, krill, plankton, spinach, romaine lettuce... i thought it might add some variety to his diet, feed that like once a week. he loves this stuff

    Do you guys think I'm not providing something for him? I think i've got everything except for sponge. I've looked for foods with sponge in them but cant find anything.
