He's swimming about at the front with the lights off. An anthia came out and they scared the life out of each other.
Hopefully he'll settle in well and start tucking in to my carefully cultivated Aip gardens.
I'll get some pics sorted.

He's out and about but pretty shy. He's pecking at the rocks. Not tried any food that he would eat yet but will try tonight. Would be surprised if he starts feeding tonight.
How long does it take Lindsay before you get yours to feed? Maybe different in a reef system when they have better things to eat??

He's doing well and is putting weight on. The fins have cleared up. It was a type of fungus on the fins. A bit worrying that he was shipped like that! but all clear now. He took his first bit of brine shrimp last night. Not a lot but its a start.
It's amazing how much aips he has taken. I thought it would take him a month or two to get rid of them but he's 90% of the way through them in 5 days! fantastic. So far he's not bothering any corals.
He's still v shy. He's out and about under ambient light and under blues but hides away once the main lights come on.
Over all I'm pretty happy with him.

He's polished off the aips so now the real test starts! He's feeding on brine shrimp but not enough to keep him healthy. Coming out a fair bit more now with the lights on. He's doing well but want to see him it a bit more and few more things. Keeping weight on so all in all can't complain. Still no picking at corals.

I added my yellow tang back into the tank and I'm pleased to say that they are getting on great. Don't think it would of gone so well if I'd put them in the other way around.

Agree with the above,glad to hear he is doing well,getting him on mysis will be much better in the long term,good move with the tang,they can be a pain with copperbands.
it would be great if you could get him on mysis has more nutrition than the brine

I feed pappone from time to time and it will go after that. It contains blended clams, cockles, muscles, shrimp amongst other stuff. Again, since it's blended it is small enough to eat.
