I just aclimated a Regal Angel I got for my tank. He is gougous. He has so far seek refuge behined the rocks with a peek of his head out here and there. I have done the reseach on these bad boys and I have the food as well as the patience. I got a Moorish Idol to take Spectrum pellets from my hand this should be a breeze. I bought some frozen SF brand angelfood, spirula flakes and seaweed sheets. We will see. They say these guys are awesome in reefs. We will see. Rob (tank) you put me up to it. I had to have one. Anyways here is a shot of what one looks like. I will get you a pic of mine when he becomes less photo shy.

Nice pick-up! How is he doing? Is he eating well? Also do you have any zooanthids in your tank? Did he touch them? They have a knack ive read for wiping out whole colonies....

A few weeks ago, Phishy Business had about 6 of these. Might want to call and see if they still have some, if someone wants one.

He has ate just about every piece of sponge in my tank. Since I work in the industry I have the abiltiy to order live sponge for him. I am slowly weaning him off the sponge. He eats specturm pellets sometimes as well as Hiraki frozen sponge. I don't have any zoos in the tank yet going with mostly sps but so far he has been a model citizen.
