Diet

These fish primarily feed on zooplankton, their diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.

Feeding regime

Should be fed regularly, at least two to three times a day, as they will not graze live rock for food. A good protein skimmer and Live Sand will help decrease the build-up of dissolved organics that may result from this more regular feeding regime.
