    Wouldn't know where to start - mine eats everything:) I do a mixture of mysis shrimp, herbivore diet, mussel, cockle, and mix it all up in a bottle.

    Also make sure that you have Nori Seaweed sheets available for continuous grazing.

    Whatever you decide to feed, just be sure to keep it diverse, with a heavy emphasis on algal matter. Otherwise, there are no hard and fast formulas or anything like that.
