Keith khoo - next time when i get one i will feed seaweed, the seaweed can buy from ntuc?

any seaweed from supermarket will do (much cheaper), just make sure it is plain flavour without additional flavouring like chilli, salt, etc etc.

Yea noted thanks bro..currently have a triggerfish n mandarinfish n cleaner shrimp, i m worried tt trigger would eat my cleaner shrimp

with a small tank like yours and the current livestock u have, its best if you keep an eye on the water parameters. The feeding and pooping will surely fluctuate your water parameters quickly. Don't over feed. just my two cents worth :)

Also, how is your mandarinfish doing? has it been eating?

mandarinfish requires a bigger tank coz they need to graze on liverocks for pods that it feeds on. And pods will be eaten much quicker than the colony can reproduce in a small tank with limited liverocks...which... will deplete the food source for the mandarinfish soon...

try encouraging it to eat if it has not been eating. cheers!
