Flame angel diet


New member
Got a flame angel on Friday. He's doing great! No shy period at all, always front and center in the tank when he sees me. Rolling the dice with no QT, but it's my last fish and I think i'm in the clear.

He is eating good on frozen mysis and NLS pellets, is there anything else that I should be feeding him to make sure he's getting all the nutrition he needs? Also, is one feeding a day sufficient? I don't have a skimmer yet so I don't want to overfeed and cause my nitrates to go silly.

Want to gather all the info I can so when I start throwing corals in there he's not tempted.

The diet of the Flame Angelfish should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other high-quality meaty items.

+1 on the veggies. You can buy Nori at an Asian market or on Amazon and get like 50 sheets at a fraction of the cost of what an aquarium name brand will charge for the same thing.
