    Pic of tank and finally a fish

    Yesterday I got one fish, a little clown. It's been a little over a month and I know I still need more rock but at the rate I have been buying it, it could take another year before I had a fish in there if I were to wait. So I got one more rock and one fish. Fish store said it would be fine and he does look quite happy in there and certainly eats very well.

    Now with just the one fish how much about should I feed. I have the frozen cubes of 50/50 (and it came with no label because store was out and they only had half a pack) so I have been slicing of tiny slivers and fed him last night and again this morning. He had been fed in store to make sure he would eat whatever food I bought.

    You can get away with feeding once a day. He should be able to eat everything in about 3 minutes or so. Don't over feed, but mix the types of food, as it is better to feeed a variety of foods. Cyclopeeze, flake, brine, etc.

    Thanks, I've been feeding just a tiny amount and he does seem to get most of it. I'll just feed him once in the morning now.

    I should have added a newer pic, he's got a friend and has had for months now and I should be adding another fish or 2 soon. I've also got a lot more rock and a few other things now so really should take a new pic.
