    New Emperor Angel in Transition

    This is a new addition to my tank. He eats what i put in but what is other people feeding. I would love for him to complete his transition to adult. So anything special i can get him?

    hopefully the pic comes through. I had mine now for over a year and a half, he's about 6 inches or more. I can definitely say he's a big pig, I feed nori, angel frozen food ( a absolute must). and He's eat everything I pretty much put in the tank. Have you heard your grunt yet ?

    Man I wish those guys were reef safe. Very beautiful fish
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    Well they are to a point reef safe. I have mine plus a blue face in my reef. I have sps mainly, mushroom and a leather. Has never bothered them. These large angels will usually only go after, lps, softies and zooz type corals. Basically anything meaty is lunch.

    Hmmm... what about frogspawn? are they on the menu? I'm hoping to have a mainly sps dominated tank.

    Still a 90G is pretty tiny for a fish that will grow to be over a foot long...

    Cheers!

    With a frog spawn you are taking a risk, The only thing I would go is sps's and ya a 90 is small, but if you are going to upgrade then you'd be find starting off with a juv.

    I'd love to upgrade lol the 90G cost me new flooring on the first floor to appease my wife, a larger tank is going to cost me a new house.

    The juvi won't be a juvi when that happens, but one day I'll be in the 400G+ club. I'll just build the house around the tank

    Cheers!
