    I was wondering. Do I feed once a day or twice? I am currently using these little cubed containers of a shrimp. I'm feeding 3 Chromis and 2 Hermit crads. All are pretty small.

    So... How much and how often do you feed Seaweed to your Tangs? I just put some in my tank and the pigs tore at it so hard they pulled the clip off the side of the tank.
